Justin Bieber has hinted that there's new music coming in 2015… and now, rumors are swirling that it might feature the son of the King of Pop (so, the Prince of Pop). Prince Jackson, the 17-year-old son of Michael Jackson, has reportedly been kicking it with the Biebs, and the two might have shared some studio time recently.

According to Page Six, Jackson has been spending a lot of time with Bieber, including hitting the Hollywood clubs and hanging out with the Biebs' boxing confidante, Floyd Mayweather Jr. The report also asserts that Jackson and Bieber have been making music together, with a "major recording album" (whatever that means) in the works.

Apparently, Mayweather has also been "offering a lot of advice to Prince, including about women," a source shared. Just a reminder, Mayweather pled guilty to a battery domestic violence charge in 2011 after he attacked his ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris.

A rep for Bieber did not immediately respond to Billboard's request for comment. Last week, Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, asserted that, while 2013 was "practice" and 2014 was "the warm up," 2015 is "game time" for the pop superstar.
