The Canadian pop star was the musical guest on “The Tonight Show,” where he performed a medley of new songs, cut some moves on stage and showed off his new lockdown locks. Mendes is on a roll, with his first three studio albums all hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, an achievement he managed by the age of 20. Now he’s a seasoned industry professional at just 22, and he’ll hope to continue that chart streak with his fourth studio album, Wonder, due out Dec. 4.
"If I turned one down, that would be insane, considering he’s been one of my favorite artists since I was like nine years old," he said.
"I cannot confirm or deny," Mendes added with a smile.
The duo — who both hail from Canada — first sparked collaboration rumors back in August when they were both seen at the same studio along with the "Love Yourself" singer's wife,.
Capital Breakfast host Sonny Jay reminded Mendes of the occurrence, to which he replied that he and Bieber have gotten closer amid the ongoing.
"In the last six months, we’ve definitely become a lot closer," he said. "It’s really cool to have him as a mentor in a lot of ways, just to kind of talk through stuff with, because there's not many people who do this type of stuff."

Last year, after Mendes was awarded the title "Prince of Pop" by Observer Magazine, Bieber quipped that Mendes still had a ways to go to officially "dethrone" him from the title, and added that they could battle it out on the rink or basketball court to declare a winner.
"Hmm Gonna have to break a few more records to dethrone my title there bud,” Bieber jokingly commented on Mendes' Instagram post. He then added, "(canadian voice)..but if you want we can play hockey for it but i heard your [sic] a real bender on the ice we could just drop the buckets and tilt for it."

"I’m just competitive as is he so it was just a little playful jargon," he added.
Mendes dropped his new single "" last Friday, while Bieber released " " with Chance The Rapper in September.
