Justin Bieber was just 7¬†years old when “U Got It Bad” topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 2001, and now the resident prince of pop has joined forces with the single’s original performer, Usher, for a surprise duet as part of the ongoing Purpose tour.

Usher took the stage with Bieber Wednesday evening during the tour’s Atlanta stop, performing “U Got It Bad” in addition to the R&B star’s “I Don’t Mind” and “U Don’t Have to Call.”
