After a photo surfaced online of Justin Bieber and Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman in the studio together, Beliebers were pretty excited about the Christmas track they were putting together. Bieber had his musical heroes in mind when he heard the song — called "Falalalala," – for his upcoming holiday album.
"He thought we'd be perfect for it," Stockman said. "And we went in and locked in."
When the Boyz stopped by to talk about their October album Twenty, Wanya Morris recalled meeting the teen star for the first time way back before they all worked together.
"We met him in the hotel, at the Le Montrose, in L.A. and the dude, he had a cast on at the time," Morris remembered. "And he stepped up and said, 'Oh my God! Boyz II Men, you're my favorite group!' and we're like, 'Oh, OK,' and at the time, we didn't know who he was. He was a new dude, and the next thing you know, he's huge; and I'm like, 'That's the same guy!' "
Bieber was a fan of Boyz II Men from when he was a kid, but there was one track that wasn't allowed in the Bieber household.
"He told us his mom didn't want him to sing 'I'll Make Love to You,' so he'd sneak and go sing it somewhere," Morris said. "It's also good to know we've influenced such a good artist. It's something that makes us feel we've accomplished [something and] we're doing our job, [that] a guy so young and so into his craft [is] influenced by three guys from Philadelphia that love to sing."
Jennifer Lopez just released the gleefully lighthearted video for “Papi,” which depicts a huge mob of men throwing themselves (literally) at J. Lo after she eats a magical love cookie.
It’s like a romantic comedy but danceable!
Sorry, Marc Anthony. Looks like your ex won't be coming back anytime soon!
A representative of the RnB superstar, Ne-Yo, has confirmed his partner Monyetta Shaw has decided he is The One by accepting his marriage proposal and it has emerged it is a double celebration for the couple, as they are also having a second child.
Last November the happy couple had their first child together, Madilyn Grace and it appears that their latest bundle of joy arrives in October.
“[Fatherhood] has been a ride, but I’m loving every minute of it,” says the 31 year old singer-songwriter, “she definitely knows her worth - which is a beautiful thing. That’s something I’ve tried to instill in her from day one: understand that you are a Godsend”.
“You’re an absolute angel and people are supposed to treat you that way” says Ne-Yo.
Spoken like a true, proud dad. Congrats to Ne-Yo and Monyetta!
Christina Aguilera has declared that music will always be her "first love" despite her recent foray into acting.
The 'Moves Like Jagger' singer revealed that she is considering more movie roles after last year's Burlesque, but would only sign on to a project that she felt "inspired by".
"I'm always reading scripts," she told Hello. "Burlesque was something that came to my door that I was truly inspired to do. It was the right time and place for me to dive into that world I've always been inspired by.
"But I'm not going to do back-to-back movies just to do them. Music is always my first love and where my time and attention will remain. But film is something that will be on my mind and I am looking for the next project."
