Justin Bieber & will.i.am: Is The Best Yet To Come For Biebs?

His catchy lyrics are known to anyone who listens to the radio and every young girl squeals at the thought that he could her "Boyfriend." While many contribute Justin Bieber's meteoric rise to superstardom to his sensational songs and charming looks, few recognize the real talent that will keep Justin in the industry beyond his years as a teenage heartthrob - yet.

will.i.am., who has recently announced a collaboration with Justin for his upcoming solo album "#willpower," testifies to Justin's versatility as an artist in being able to sing, dance, write songs and play four different instruments.

"(Justin is) very talented, beyond what people probably think he's capable of. I've worked with him and (have seen) how talented he is," will.i.am told Access Hollywood at the Teen Choice Awards 2012 this past weekend.

While it's obvious Justin is trying to make his transition from his first break-out perception as a "Baby" into adulthood, the Black Eyed Pears frontman said he believes Justin can make it happen.

"In the (entertainment) industry, especially as it's changing, you're going to (need) some type of real talent. Maybe people can't see (Justin's talent) right now, but 10, 15 years from now, he'll still be around," will.i.am said.

When asked about the Black Eyed Peas star's statement, the 18-year-old pop star elaborated by referring to his own work on "Believe," not only as a singer, but also as a producer and a songwriter.

"I was able to do a lot with this album...Almost all of the songs on this album I wrote (or) co-wrote with so I think he just means people might not know you know the talent that's there," Justin told Access.

Regardless of where his career takes him, Justin says he will always try to remain positive despite the inevitable up's and down's.

"(People) might think that it's just a phase ... but I've been doing this since I was really little and I want to do it for the rest of my life," Justin said.
