Listen to Justin Bieber on iHeartRadio | Listen to Kid Cudi on iHeartRadio

I don’t think anybody actually believed Justin Bieber’s bizarre early retirement claims, but for anybody that did, here's some more proof that he isn’t.

The Biebs recently hit the studio with Kid Cudi for a recording session. It's not clear if they’re recording something for Cudi’s next album or Bieber’s, but the point is that they’re doing something.

If it is for Bieber’s next record, then this should be pretty interesting. Former hipster it boy Cudi’s best known for his alt-rap productions and more recently, psychedelic hip-hop and rock. It’s miles away from Bieber’s top forty stuff, but we have seen The Biebs moving further into the urban world since Believe dropped, so this isn’t a total surprise.
