No your eyes do not deceive you – this really did happen.

A previously unreleased Justin Bieber collaboration with the legendary Michael Jackson has mystically appeared online titled “Slave To The Rhythm” – we’re just as curious as you are.

The original recording, according to the michaeljackson.com message board, leaked onto the internet back in December 2010. This brand new version has been given a thumping electro-dance rework, with additional vocals and verses from the Bieb’s to create something that certainly sounds chart-worthy. The origins and purpose of this track are currently unclear, although Justin did send out a series of Tweets following the leak to possibly certify it’s legitimacy.

Things are shaping up well for the triple Billboard Music Award winner, as he also yesterday made an appearance at the video shoot for Bei Major‘s single “Lolly” released earlier this year. In addition the “Baby” singer also posted a photo of himself alongside man-on-fire Future as they worked on new material in the studio.

Take a listen below and let us know just what you think of this unexpected collaboration.
