London: Teen sensation Justin Bieber is planning to take a month off before he starts working on his next album.
The "Baby" hitmaker has hired a series of rap and R&B superstars to collaborate with him on the upcoming record, including Kanye West, Drake and Chris Brown.
Bieber is hoping an extended break will help him mature before he starts the studio sessions.
"I`ve been working so hard, I`m taking a month off. It`s been great to just think and enjoy hanging out with my friends," dailystar.co.uk quoted him as saying.
"I`m still growing up, and when you`re working every day, you don`t really get a chance to figure out who you are. So with the time off, I`m able to think, pray and just kind of grow up," he said.
