24 of Justin Bieber’s Best Hip-Hop Collaborations Over the Years
As it stands today, Justin Bieber is arguably the biggest pop star on the planet. It’s no secret that this blond-haired, dancing Canadian export has dominated the airwaves since his debut in 2009 at the tender age of 14. Since Bieb’s has grown up in the public eye and since he’s become a larger-than-life, platinum-selling star, he’s gotten to collaborate with some of the biggest names in music over the years with hip-hop being no exception.
Although his music is based in the pop world, JB frequently taps some of his famous rapper friends to collaborate on tracks. As a young protege of Usher, Bieber was working with acts like Ludacris since the time of his first album. Justin has joined forces with the likes of Travis Scott, Big Sean, Chance The Rapper and Drake, and in most cases, the rappers return the favor by hopping on a song with Justin for his projects.
Justin’s latest chart-topper from the hip-hop world is DJ Khaled’s No. 1 song “I’m the One.” Biebs sings the hook on the track while Chance, Lil Wayne, Quavo and DJ Khaled each supply verses and ad-libs. With “I’mtThe One” being a certified smash hit and whispers of a Justin Bieber having a remix to Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble” in the chamber, XXL went down memory lane to revisit some of the Bieb’s best hip-hop collabs throughout the course of his career.
