The Texas singer-songwriter/producer joined Bieber on stage at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California, where the pop star is playing two concerts as part of his current ‘Justice’ world tour.
According to a fan on Twitter, Bieber brought out Bridges to perform ‘River’ from the latter artist’s 2015 debut album ‘Coming Home’.
“Special guest Leon Bridges,” a post on Crypto.com Arena’s Twitter page reads alongside a clip of the team-up. “You never know who you will see with Justin Bieber #JusticeWorldTour.”
The footage sees Bridges sitting down as he plays ‘River’ on a red electric guitar. Bieber, meanwhile, watches on from nearby as he leans on a stage prop. You can watch the performance in the posts below.
