Craig David says he would love to duet with Justin Bieber, but doesnt want to push it.
The duo were reunited on stage at The Roxy in West Hollywood recently at Craig gig, and Biebs got a shout out from the 7 Days singer.
Before bursting into a performance of 16 – which is a mash-up of Fill Me In and Justins Where Are U Now – Craig gave him a shoutout, before inviting him on stage later on.
Justin praised Craig as an amazing guy and an incredible artist, and Craig hoping to turn their mutual admiration into music.
When Metro.co.uk asked him if would like to collab with the Sorry singer, he told us: Id love to man it would be wicked. Hes shown me so much love. He came out to my show at the Roxy Theatre. He was so cool with it. He was in with the crowd. He was like let me come in and do my thing, I just want to be part of it. He showed so much love and then came on stage.
I have a lot of time for Justin, hes growing into a young man and owning it.
On their friendship, which has spanned years, Craig added: The one thing weve always had – we met early on when he did his movie premiere, very young Justin and we met through his manager Scooter Braun. Hanging out on the red carpet. And then he performed 7 Days at his arena show so I came on and did that.
We kept in touch along the way and what I like about relationships building like that was we respected each other and there was no taking advantage. We know each other and we respect each other and champion each others music.
When the time comes that we are in a studio and it happens, it will happen. Rather than like “Justin lets do a tune together.” This way its more organic. And when it happens people are like were on a level here.
Justin, who recently split from on-off girlfriend Selena Gomez, was spotted hanging out with a mystery girl and Craigs show this month. But Craig seemed to be in the dark about Biebers love life.
He admitted: I didnt see who he was with, just that he was vibing the music and all up in it. The only way to be at a Craig David show, really.
