In an interview with ET Online, The Voice coach explained that fitting in filming the video with the 19-year-old's manic schedule was often a challenge.

He explained: “Justin'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 Rio and the boys on the choreography for it. So it was a lot of trekking.”

Justin has been hitting the headlines for all wrong reasons almost on a daily basis while on his 'Believe' world tour for leaving his fans waiting for hours for performances and having is tour bus raided for drugs while in Stockholm.

Of all the people I have worked with over the past five years he is one of the best.”
