The 'Believe' singer says he hopes his new single will help more people accept him as a credible recording artist.

Justin Bieber says he hopes his new single 'Boyfriend' will "turn other people's heads around" and help him expand his fan base.

The 'Never Say Never' singer's brand new single received its first play on Capital FM today (26th March), and Justin says he wants the track to make people take him more seriously as a recording artist.

"At this point in my career I'm just trying to do things that are allowing me to, you know, right now I'm at a point where I can either just keep my young fans and go down that route and eventually fade off, or I can really go for it and I can be the best I can be and hopefully turn other people's heads around and let them know," Justin exclusively told Capital FM.

"What I really want with 'Boyfriend' is people to be like, "Who's singing that song?', and people to be like, "Justin Bieber" and be like "Oh my goodness that's really good", and be pleasantly surprised," the 18 year-old Canadian singer explained. "That's the type of reaction I want from people."

The 'Mistletoe' singer is currently preparing for the release of this third studio album 'Believe', which is set to feature collaborations with Drake, Kanye West and Lil Wayne.

Justin Bieber is releasing new single 'Boyfriend' in the US today with a UK release to follow.
