Justin Bieber Turn To You
Justin Bieber releases charity single, "Turn to You," for Mother's Day.

You don't have to be a Belieber to appreciate Justin Bieber's new single, "Turn to You." As a Mother's Day present to moms everywhere, the 18-year-old superstar wrote the song for his mother, Pattie Mallette, and all of the proceeds from the track will go to help single moms in need.

Bieber has seen firsthand the challenges that single mother’s face. "Turn to You" is a personal account of Mallette's own struggles as a single mom. She became pregnant with her son at 18 and raised him on her own.

"You worked two jobs/ To keep a roof above our heads/ You chose/ A life for me no you never gave up/ I admire you/ For the strength you’ve instilled in me," Bieber sings on the track.

The young superstar told MTV he wants the world to know how thankful he is for her courage.

"[It's] about the struggles, I say in the song," Bieber told MTV. "She had me at like the age I am now. [It's about] just the struggles she went through and how brave she was, and I think the world needed to know that."

Bieber's highly anticipated new album Believe drops June 19. The album will feature collaborations with his mentor Usher, as well as Drake, Kanye West and country star Taylor Swift.

The singer's lead single, "Boyfriend," is currently No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100. Bieber released the video for "Boyfriend" last week, which featured the 18-year-old phenomenon driving fast cars and partying with the ladies.
