Justin Bieber Feat. Chance the Rapper – “Confident”

Chance The Rapper's Acid Rap placed near the top of our 2013 albums list, and we're not the only ones who've been seduced by the young Chicago MC's spasmodic rasp; he's also been mixing it up with a wide range of eminent musicians.

Drake – “Trust Issues (Justin Bieber Remix)”

The Northside's Finest made style statements at last night's VMAs (still looking for a good photo of Drake's sweater) which unfortunately deflected attention from the fact that Bieber dropped a remix of Drake's "Trust Issues" via Twitter a little before the ceremony started.
