Justin Bieber Hints At 'Edgy' New Single

Plus, JB tells MTV that he's planning to release a song about his mum...

Justin Bieber may be still riding high off the release of his new video for Boyfriend, but with his next album, Believe, not too far off, Bieber has revealed that fans might get the chance to hear more from the June release sooner rather than later.

JB made the revelation during an interview on MTV First, where the 18-year old was asked why he decided to release Boyfriend as the first cut from Believe, to which he replied: "I just thought it was a song that most represented me at the time and what I wanted to put out there,

"It's crazy, because even my next single after that is going to be better."

Bieber didn't want to give out too many details about this even better next track, but he did reveal that the title recalls a certain hit by '90s teen idols the Backstreet Boys.

He stated: "My next single, I don't have it completely set. ... I think it's As Long As You Love Me. It's midtempo, I think it's edgy."

With no exact information on when fans might get to hear the next single, he also admitted that a song he wrote for his mother, Pattie Mallette, could drop on Mother's Day in the US on 13th May - even if it doesn't make the album.

The Never Say Never star explained: "I wrote a song for my mom. But I'm going to put it out on Mother's Day,

"[It's] about the struggles, I say in the song. 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."
