It looks like Will.i.am is willing to fly around the world to catch up with Justin Bieber!

The BFFs collaborated on a new video and the 19-year-old has been so busy touring in Europe that the 38-year-old Black Eyed Peas singer had to hop on a plane and finish the production in Barcelona, Spain.

"(Bieber's) on tour. It was tough to get this video (done). I had to fly to Barcelona to shoot Justin Bieber then flew to Japan to work with (dancer pal) Rio and the boys on the choreography for it. So it was a lot of trekking."

The Belieber is a Hologram in the Video

Singing partnerships have become all the rage these days. Some of the hottest artists, who could easily carry and album on their own, want to place other A-list artists on their songs just as a safety measure. The Biebs appears in Will's "#thatPOWER" video on Will's album, "#willpower," but only as a hologram. As the hip hop star and his homies march around Japan in black leather and black hats, they appear to pay homage to the mega pop teen.

"He is One of the Best"

None of it seems surprising since The Black Eyed Peas frontman has nothing but huge praise for the "Believe" singer. "Justin is a great talent. Of all the people I have worked with over the past five years he is one of the best."

Do you believe Justin Bieber is a "great talent"?
