The decay Bs0→J/ψK+K- is investigated using 0.16 fb-1 of data collected with the LHCb detector using 7 TeV pp collisions. Although the J/ψϕ channel is well known, final states at higher K+K- masses have not previously been studied. In the K+K- mass spectrum we observe a significant signal in the f2′(1525) region as well as a nonresonant component. After subtracting the nonresonant component, we find B(Bs0→J/ψf2′(1525))/B(Bs0→J/ψϕ)=(26.4±2.7±2.4)%.
