(CNN) – Justin Bieber's reach could soon extend out of this world.

Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson posted on Twitter that the 19-year-old pop star and his manager, Scooter Braun, are the latest celebrities to sign up for a ride on Branson's commercial space flight.

Bieber retweeted the announcement, adding he's also like to shoot a music video in space.

Branson's passenger spacecraft had its first rocket powered test flight in April.

The goal is for "Spaceship Two," as it's called, to reach full space flight by the end of the year.
