In the wake of teaming up with Lady Gaga, it looks like R. Kelly has just finished working with none other than Justin Bieber.

Yep. The Biebs took to Twitter on Wednesday, Nov. 13, and simply wrote, "next week," along with a link to a Vibe article revealing that he and R. Kelly have indeed collaborated on a tune.

And while the pop star didn't specifically say when next week we might be hearing this joint effort, it's probably safe to assume it will be next Monday as part of his ongoing Music Mondays promotion, which finds the 19-year-old serving up a new single every week for 10 weeks.

"I just did a song [with him]," R. Kelly tells Vibe. "[Justin] just called me to do a song and it's hot. He wanted to do some R&B stuff so we got together and did that."

When the track is released, it will mark the seventh song Bieber has unveiled in as many weeks, following "All Bad," "Bad Day," "Hold Tight," "All That Matters," "Heartbreaker" and "Recovery."
