Justin Bieber has released “The Christmas Song” collaboration with Usher on Monday, almost one week before his official Christmas album, “Under The Mistletoe” is set to debut.
Usher brought the track to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on Monday morning, saying that he’s excited to be a part of the remake.
"Justin and I did the classic record 'Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire.' This record is going to be remembered for years to come," Usher said on Seacrest’s morning show. "It's a record that has always been one of my favorites, and I'm happy that I was able to share it with Justin, and for us to put it out.”
One week after Bieber released a single for “Mistletoe” the 17-year-old crooner tweeted his anticipation for Seacrest to release his next single.
“Last week you all did an incredible job getting mistletoe to number one so I'm excited to see what you do with The Christmas Song aka Chestnuts tomorrow," Bieber tweeted on Sunday, one day before the official premiere of the song.
Bieber teased his fans with a surprise video of himself and mentor Usher recording the latest release in a studio. About one week before officially releasing the song, Bieber tweeted that he had something special in store for his fans.
"Up early to shoot another video for #UNDERTHEMISTLETOE #Nov1st but something else is out this morning," the young crooner tweeted.
Aside from Usher, MTV.com reports that Bieber will be joined by the likes of Mariah Carey, Boys II Men, Busta Rhymes and the band Perry on his Christmas album. On the Seacrest morning show, Usher tweeted that fans had a lot to look forward to with the new album.
“The album is full of surprises,” Usher said on the show. “Justin's Under the Mistletoe is going to be incredible."
