Justin Bieber might only be 17, but he cites R&B group Boyz II Men as an influence on him when he was younger. So much that the teen singer has recruited the trio for a track on his upcoming holiday album. 

"He thought we'd be perfect for it," member Shawn Stockman says about the Christmas song "Falalalala". "And we went in and locked in." The group also recalls meeting the enthusiastic singer back when he was just making his way onto the scene. 

"We met him in the hotel, at the Le Montrose, in L.A. and the dude, he had a cast on at the time," Wanya Morris says. "And he stepped up and said, 'Oh my God! Boyz II Men, you're my favorite group!' And we're like, 'Oh, OK,' and at the time, we didn't know who he was. He was a new dude, and the next thing you know, he's huge. And I'm like, 'That's the same guy!'"
