Justin Bieber might be in the middle of a media circus, considering his recent spat with a money-hungry paparazzo, but let’s forget about that for two seconds (preferably forever) and move on to the music because that’s what’s really important.
JB released “Die In Your Arms” and it’s COMPLETELY different than I imagined, but in a good way. A really good way. I imagined a gloomy 90s-esque ballad but this tune has a Jackson 5 soulfulness that I didn’t expect, even though Scooter Braun already made the comparison on Twitter. The track has a catchy opening and rhythmic finger snaps, while Bieber croons: “Ooh baby, I know loving you ain’t easy, sure is worth a try.”
His whole album is gearing up to be an essay about why the Biebs is the archetypal boyfriend, leading me to believe the album should be called Etiquette for Gentleman rather than Believe. Of course, this is the second single released from his upcoming LP Believe, out June 19. How does it compare to “Boyfriend?”

It looks like Justin Bieber will be receiving yet another award as the world’s best son, after releasing a song today for his mother Pattie, conveniently in time for Mother’s Day. Yea, try to top that guys.
“Turn To You” is an emotional song that many people, not only Beliebers will relate to. The lyrics are about growing up with a single parent and reminds me of his song “Down To Earth” from his first album My World. Justin praises his mother’s strength in the autobiographical lyrics: “You worked two jobs, to keep a roof up over our heads/ You chose a life for me, no you never gave up/ I admire you, for the strength you instilled in me.”
Not only is his new single a beautiful gesture to his mom, but proceeds of the sales will go to other single moms in need. The Bethesda Centre in London, Ontario is where his mother Pattie Mallette turned to in her time of need at the age of 18. The centre is now facing closure unless it raises 1.5 million dollars by May 31 and it seems as though the Biebs is doing his part. SWOON.
Bieber’s highly anticipated album Believe drops June 19.
