Justin Bieber Working With Kanye West, Drake

Justin Bieber co-signs Drake's "Trust Issues" by remixing the summer song. Instead of channeling his rap alter ego, Shawty Mane, as in Chris Brown's mixtape, "Boy in Detention," the Biebz coos of love's doubtfulness and leaves Drizzy's rhymes untouched.

The remix comes two days after Drake won Songwriter of the Year at the 2011 BMI Urban Awards. Drake took advantage of the moment to thank his mother for "always making me look up the definition of words I'd ask her about" and his uncle "who sat me down and said keep on" after "Sylvia Rhone said I couldn't make it."
