Justin Bieber’s Collaboration: No to The Wanted, Yes to One Direction

Justin Bieber and “the Wanted” share stage, last year!

Justin Bieber doesn’t want to work with The Wanted, even though the boy band recently claimed to be planning a duet with him, reports ContactMusic.com

Although The Wanted claimed they were planning a duet with the Biebs, he says his manager Scooter Braun has played him some of their new songs but he’s not interested in recording right now.

He told We Love Pop magazine:

“Well they’ve recorded a lot of great songs that Scooter’s played me and I can’t wait to hear what their next album sounds like. It should be interesting. But I’ve just finished in the studio on my own album, so I think I’ve had enough studio time to last me for the next six years.”

However, that hasn’t stopped Justin from planning to work with The Wanted‘s rivals One Direction. Justin said previously:

“The One Direction guys are great. We have a lot of fun whenever we hang out. They came over my house and we were just chilling out around the pool and listening to music.

“We were talking about me collaborating with them on a song on their next album. It’s gonna be great.”

    First. I would love for 1D and Justin to collab!!

  • ignore the haters

    yep justin, way to go, i think in behaviour wise , i prefer one direction, but when it comes to music, what makes u beautiful VS chasing the sun, gimme a break, chasing the sun is WAY better. btw i hate on direction, no hatin’ directioners.

    • TrueBelieber

      ya me too NOT A HUGE fun of 1D either id rather perfer the WANTED BITCHES LOL.but on god i saw harry styles kiss niall on stage its on youtube.it should.

    • jsha

      Yaaa i agree.

    • JaylaBieber

      One Direction’s fans are mostly girls who only like them for their looks because What Makes You Beautiful is such a cliche song. I’m not a fan of them but Harry Styles is hot. He’s the one bringing all the attention to the group anyway.

    • alicea

      I agree with you and I don’t like 1D either

  • Chanez

    I cant wait for them to collaberate!! I love justin, but my friend doesnt. She likes one direction, but i dont. So this might change the way we both look at them!!

  • :)

    i have a feeling justin won’t collaborate with one direction because they have different types of music. justin is more r & b and one direction is pop rock.

  • iambieberpokemongirl1326

    awesome. no the stupid boy band the wanted nd yay 2 1d

    • JaylaBieber

      The Wanted is awesome…more likely Nathan Skyes but they’re all good.

      • emily

        i agree with you about Nathan Sykes!

    • emily

      if you dont like them just say that you dont like them, but dont call them stupid. let’s be rational here.

  • Syrine

    Well I don’t think he will collab with 1D either because he had been working so hard on believe and he is so tired from the studio and all that stuff so i don’t think so.

  • #BieberForever:)

    Um…ew 1D! I’d rather hear The Wanted jerks, than Gay Direction! But, if he does a collaboration with 1D, I’m not listening to 1D, only JB. Justin will make the song good. No hate ‘directioners’.

    • Ninja Girl

      I don’t know what you’re talking about. Cuz 1: if you don’t want hate or if you hate 1D,then don’t say anything at all. And 2nd of all, you think you have a chance with Justin!!! NO U DONT!!!!!!!!!!!

    • JaylaBieber

      I’m not gonna listen to the song at all.

  • jsha

    I think ‘the wanted’ is better than ‘1D’ . Their songs are good.

  • Victoria

    I love One Direction! I hope they do collaborate with a song!

  • Lola

    I like the wanted a lot better than one direction, I hope he does something with tme in the future

  • Jade

    i am totally with u on this justin but i have to say on thing that i wouldnt be able to live if u didnt release another song for the next 6 years!!!! i absoultly love u to death with all my heart u r simply amazing and i cant wait to u come to australia on the 15th!!! i jope i get the chance to meet u coz i love u so much!!!
    sincerly ur number 1 australian fan jade bieber exohexoh mwah <3

  • 2crazy4bieber

    I prefer 1D over the wanted anytime.

  • JaylaBieber

    Really? He refused to work with The Wanted but he went for One Direction? Music wise, Glad You Came and Chasing The Sun would win any day against What Makes You Beautiful and One Thing.



  • alicea

  • Directioner
