Pop as well as country fans were intrigued to hear the news late last year that teen sensation and Best New Artist Grammy nominee Justin Bieber would be collaborating with one of country's most successful crossover stories, Rascal Flatts. "I'm honored they're making music with me!" he tweeted in December.
The trio matched up with the Biebs to duet on a remix of his bittersweet ballad "That Should Be Me," for Bieber's Valentine's Day album Never Say Never: The Remixes. The results? As one might guess, pretty harmonious--and a nice standout on a collection filled with appearances from A-list names, including Miley Cyrus, Usher, and Chris Brown.
Now, more good news for fans of the combination. Both the Flatts and Bieber announced Monday via Twitter that they shot a video for the duet that morning. Even better? Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus posted a few snaps from the video set on his Twitter account, including this cute mug shot:
DeMarcus accidentally misspelled Bieber's name--oops!--but quickly corrected himself.
As for Bieber...could it be that his famous hair looks a bit shorter? Or scruffier or something? He explained his slighty different look in the photo: "yeah so it's true...i got a lil haircut...i like it," he tweeted, adding that he planned to auction off the trimmings for charity.
A release date for the video has not been announced, but stay tuned--we'll jump on it as soon as it's ready!
