Tyler, The Creator has revealed Justin Bieber rejected a song he and Frank Ocean had written for him.

The American rapper - who has worked with Miley Cyrus - told Billboard that the teen heartthrob turned down the track they wrote for his Believe album, but said he is still really keen to work with Justin.

Tyler said: "I've got so many beats and songs, but no one's giving me a chance yet. I want to take Justin Bieber for a month and just lock him up in a cage where we sit and make music. He's one of the most successful people in the world, but his music could be so much tighter."

The 22-year-old music producer - who has just released his debut solo album Wolf - wants to become a producer to the stars like his idol Pharrell Williams.

Tyler said: "I knew I was eventually going to be famous or something, but not so quickly. There's so much that's gone on in three years that I can't even comprehend it all."
