Justin Bieber's protégé Carly Rae Jepsen has revealed she's been lucky enough to hear some songs on the teen heartthrob's eagerly anticipated new record ‘Believe’, stating she was "pleasantly surprised."
Jepsen, who Biebs singed to his manager Scooter Braun's label Schoolboy Records, also exclusively told MTV UK that despite Justin seeking a new musical direction on ‘Believe’, his fans will not be disappointed.
"He’s played me a couple of his new tracks and I was really impressed. It’s a different sound to what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised,” the ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer told MTV UK.
"I think his fans can be excited to hear Justin grown up and that his music’s developed in a really great way. It was awesome to begin with but it’s just got this maturity to it now.”
The Canadian songstress also went on to explain how she felt about denying JB his first ever UK No.1 single, after ‘Call Me Maybe’ managed to hold off the Biebster's new single ‘Boyfriend’ from the top spot.
"It’s kinda surreal,” said Jepsen.
“We’ve had a very public but friendly competition going on, but the truth is I know I wouldn’t be in this position without his help so it feels like we’re sharing the number one spot.
"When I speak to him he’s nothing but supportive and lovely and I hope he knows how much I appreciate it. There’s no bad blood!”
