Justin Bieber has revealed he has been in the studio recording music with legendary hip hop producer Rick Rubin, with sources suggesting he wants his new music to have more of an "urban" sound.

Justin Bieber is working with Rick Rubin.

The 20-year-old singer headed into the studio with the founder of Def Jam Records late on Tuesday night (13.01.15) and has reportedly enlisted the help of the super-producer in order to create an "urban" sound for his new music.

Confirming they are working together, the 'Beauty and a Beat' hitmaker posted a grainy photo of the pair on his Shots account yesterday (14.01.15), writing, "With the man Rick."

Reposting the selfie, the youngster's manager Scooter Braun teased the news music by writing, "Working on some history!"

The 51-year-old producer has previously worked with the likes of Kanye West and Jay Z, and has been credited with raising the profile of hip hop music by popularising acts such as Run-D.M.C., Public Enemy and the Beastie Boys during his extensive career.

Despite heading into the studio with the legendary music-maker, Justin - whose last album, 'Believe', was released in 2012 and spawned the singles 'Boyfriend' and 'As Long as You Love Me' - is reportedly keen to avoid making a full album because he doesn't want to have to tour to promote it.

A source told gossip website HollywoodLife: "He is in no rush to make a full album because he doesn't want to tour right now.

"A full album doesn't make him any money. He will still continue to release singles and keep his music out there, but a full album is still a long time coming."
