British singer/rapper Labrinth is teaming up with Justin Bieber to get the young star back on the right track following his bad boy antics.

Labrinth fears the Baby hitmaker is under the same amount of pressure as Michael Jackson suffered as a young star, and he is heading into a studio with the singer in March (15) to help him re-focus on his music career.

He tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "It's one of those Michael Jackson things where fame's becomes bigger than the music... So hopefully the music that comes is as important as the fame. I'm going into the studio with Justin next month."

Bieber recently apologised for his turbulent 2014 following a string of run-ins with police, paparazzi, and neighbours at his former home in California.
