will.i.am brought video shoot to Justin Bieber to secure promo appearance

Rapper will.i.am had to fly halfway across the world to complete his new video with Justin Bieber as the teen superstar was too busy touring in Europe to schedule a proper shoot for the promo.

The Black Eyed Peas frontman recruited the Baby hitmaker for his solo track thatPower, but soon discovered he would have to take the production to Bieber, who was on the road in Barcelona, Spain, in order for the youngster to film scenes for the video.

He tells ETonline.com, "(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."
