Justin Bieber: 'There's no collaboration with Drake's dad'

Pop star Justin Bieber has dismissed rumors suggesting he has recorded a secret song with Drake's musician father.

Dennis Graham, who previously enjoyed success as a drummer for Jerry Lee Lewis back in the 1960s, teased fans in December (15) by sharing a photo of himself and Justin on Instagram.


"We have a surprise coming soon stay tuned (sic)", he captioned the snap, alongside a number of emojis, including multiple music note signs, appearing to hint the pair was working on a song together.


Justin did not comment on the claims at the time, but in a new radio interview on The Bert Show, he cleared up the reports once and for all.


"We're not doing a collaboration," the 21-year-old explained. "But he's a super nice guy. I actually met him at the Nice Guy restaurant in L.A. (Los Angeles)".


Drake's dad unveiled plans to make a solo comeback last year (15), when he used Instagram to appeal for a "classy female rapper" to collaborate with.


Dennis has become a familiar face to Drake's fans after joining his rapper son on tour and appearing in his music video for Worst Behavior. Father and son also teamed up for the 2014 song Heat of the Moment.
