    Justin Bieber spoke to Ryan Seacrest about his upcoming album Believe, revealing why he chose "Boyfriend" as the first single and about the album's overall vibe, energy and tone.

    About "Boyfriend" as the first taste of the platter, Bieber said, "It was a really hard choice. We had so many songs, so many up-tempos we could have released, and I thought we should slow it down a little bit. I feel like every single that's dropping is like this [beats out a faster tempo] and you can only take so much of that, so I wanted to do something a little different, slow it down… It's just something a little bit more mature but also something I think I'm ready for."

    About "Believe," well, he compared the vibe to the King of Pop, saying, "It's kind of classic, I feel. Because the songs I feel won't get old. The music is very fresh, but it's also I'm taking a lot from old school music, like a lot of Michael Jackson is inspired in this album. A lot of old R&B. A lot of old pop. Just stuff that I feel I can bring into, but also make fresh and new. So, it's pretty special."
