R Kelly has confirmed he has recorded a song with Justin Bieber.

The pair are rumoured to have collaborated musically after Justin sent a cryptic tweet to the RnB crooner and Canadian rapper Drake, writing: "They aren't ready."

The Ignition singer, whose real name is Robert Kelly, admitted the rumours are true, telling Vibe: "I just did a song [with Justin Bieber].

He added: "[Justin] just called me to do a song and it's hot. He wanted to go and do some RnB stuff so we got together and did that."

Justin later teased that the track could be unveiled in coming days, tweeting: "next week :)" accompanied by a link to the Vibe story.

R Kelly and the 19-year-old were seen hanging out together earlier this year.

The 46-year-old star's musical partnership with Justin follows his work with Lady Gaga on Do What U Want. His new album Black Panties will be released in December.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

You're determined to get your agenda met, even if it means being loud and difficult. The prospect of creating friction does not bother you at all. You'd rather put people in an uncomfortable position than accept their inflexible position. By stirring up enough publicity, you could exert enough pressure to create some changes. A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
