Justin Bieber has kicked off his 18th birthday celebrations in spectacular fashion by announcing details of his new single.

The Never Say Never star, who turns the big one-eight today (1st March), paid a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show to confirm that the first cut from his forthcoming album Believe will be a track entitled Boyfriend.

The Biebster had previously teased his fans about his appearance on Ellen, telling his near 18million Twitter followers: "I got something BIG to share with you and the world this week. thank u for everything! see u soon."


When asked by the chat show host about his news, JB revealed: "My big announcement is that on March 26th, my first single is coming out and it's called Boyfriend."

Explaining the reason behind the name of the song, which he co-wrote with Mike Posner, Justin stated: "Basically I'm talking to this girl, if I was your boyfriend, I would never let you go,"

As well as talking about his next single, the Baby singer's manager Scooter Braun also presented Bieber with a birthday gift from himself and mentor Usher - a Fisker Karma, which is a luxury electric sports car.

When giving him the present, Braun told Justin: "You work really, really hard. I always yell at you don't get anything flashy. You know, we're not about that. Be humble, be humble and I kind of broke my own rule.

"So we wanted to make sure you were environmentally friendly and we wanted to make sure since you love cars that when you're on the road you are always environmentally friendly and we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out.

"I think you know where I'm going and you're kind of freaking out right now."

Clearly pleased with the car, Justin exclaimed: "This is amazing. Is it all electric?"

Happy 18th Birthday Justin!
