Despite the endless protests from dance music fans, Justin Bieber has worked his way onto the EDM scene, collaborating with some of its biggest stars Skrillex and Diplo, on major tracks like the hit single "Where Are Ü Now?" and "Sorry". With his next album coming out next week, Bieber is closing in on what he hopes will be a defining moment in his career as he continues to blur the lines between pop and EDM.

Well, Skrillex and Diplo aren't the only EDM producers the Biebs worked with on his latest album, as evidence comes to surface that another up and coming dance music hotshot had a hand in creating the album's title track.

Originally posted by ComplexUK, the image below shows Steve James, real name Steve Philibin, listed as a credit on track #13, "Purpose". A look across DJ/producer Steve James' social media also reveals heavy promotion of the track.

Hailing from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, Steve James, is only 17 years old and in addition to landing a co-writing/production credit on the title track of Bieber's defining release, is already touring as support for The Chainsmokers.

Check out some of his most recent releases, and tell us what you think of the new kid on the block...
