Justin VS Justin!

Is Biebs Giving The Superstar A Run For His Money?

Could Justin Bieber and Justin Timberlake share more than just the same first name?

The ‘Baby’ singer, who recently told MTV News that his new album
‘Believe’
is inspired by the trousersnake star, looks set to follow in his footsteps by ditching his pop roots for hip-hop.

Just like JT, who left behind his cheesy N*SYNC days to embrace the art of rapping when he went solo, the 18-year-old appears to have followed suit with his new single ‘Boyfriend.’

"All I'm saying is wow…so much different than his previous music,” revealed DJ Mike Lee from Baltimore’s Z104.3 radio station, who was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of the track before it drops on March 26.

"The best way to describe it is a mix of Justin Timberlake Sexy Back...N Sync Girlfriend - and get this, he raps.”

Meanwhile, Justin’s producer Mike Posner has also spilled some insider deets on what Beliebers can expect from their idol’s new material…

“You're going to flip,” he teased to 97.5 radio station’s DJ Bootleg Kev. “You're going to want to play this song.

“It's super hip-hop."

Meanwhile, see why we’re so excited to hear more from Biebs in the video clip below…
