Justin Bieber has been busy fuelling rumours he secretly got married to Hailey Baldwin - but he's also found time to record a Michael Jackson tribute song called 'Let's Shut Up and Dance' alongside EXO member Lay.
Details about the song have mostly been kept under wraps, however there are a few things we already kow about it and Lay has recently confirmed the song in an interview.

As Lay confiirmed in his recent interview, Jason Derulo is the mastermind behind the song, having written it as a tribute to the late Michael Jackson.
