Justin Bieber’s Mother’s Day Song “Turn To You”: Listen

We always knew Justin Bieber was a mama’s boy — and now it’s as clear as ever how close he is with his mother with the release of his new song “Turn To You”. The melodic, midtempo song — with Bieber sweetly declaring, “I admire you for the strength you’ve instilled in me” — was inspired by his own mother, Pattie Mallette. The single hits iTunes tonight at midnight, and all proceeds from sales of the song benefit the Bethedsda Centre, an Ontario crisis women’s shelter that provided aid to Justin’s mom during her pregnancy. The center is in danger of closing if it doesn’t raise $1.5 million by May 31, so get to (legally) downloading, Beliebers and moms of Beliebers! Til then, listen to the track below.

In the song, Justin reflects on personal memories and details from his own life, like that his mom was his age when she had him, and that she had to work two jobs to support them both. He also references he and his mother’s dedication to their faith.

The song, which is a charity single and a B-side from his upcoming album Believe, showcases Bieber’s breathy vocals and a personal touch we don’t typically hear in his tunes. This is just about the best Mother’s Day gift a mom could receive.
