Last summer, Justin Bieber leaked a version of Michael Jackson’s song “A Slave To The Rhythm,” which featured him trading vocals with the King of Pop. The song would eventually end up on MJ’s recently released posthumous album, XSCAPE, sans Bieber. But according to L.A. Reid their might be another Bieber/Jackson collaboration in the works.

In an interview with Access Hollywood (via Billboard), Reid said he felt protective of Bieber, who he signed to Island Records in 2009, and didn’t feel “Slave to the Rhythm” was a good fit.

“‘Slave 2 The Rhythm’ didn’t include him per my direction … If it hadn’t been leaked, it would have been featured but it sort of took the wrong turn,” But you know what? We’re gonna revisit that.”
