will.i.am Says Justin Bieber Will ‘Be Around a Long Time’

will.i.am has a massive guest list for his ‘#willpower’ solo album, but the one featured performer he is most psyched about is Justin Bieber. So why is The Biebs so high on the Black Eyed Peas‘ singer’s list? Because he thinks that the teen has some serious longevity. Think The Biebs is a flash in the pan, flavor of the month, soon-to-be-forgotten teen idol? Pft! Will heartily disputes that notion.

“I like him because he’s going to be around for a long time,” he told MTV News. “And he’s really talented.” Will remained coy about the details and nature of his collabo with JB, which only serves to amp up the excitement. Maybe Will will return the favor down the road and lend his pipes to the follow up to ‘Believe.’

It is impressive that such a major artist like will.i.am gave The Biebs such serious props and showed his faith in the singer’s future.

Will rattled off other guests – Eva Simons, LMFAO, Ne-Yo, to make a few- but we’re most excited to hear what The Biebs did on the record.  He also confirmed that he is “a couple weeks away from completion” regarding the album.
