The 'Boyfriend' singer says Usher has always advised him to put family before his music career.

Justin Bieber has talked about his relationship with mentor Usher and says the 'Without You' singer is always giving him guidance about how to balance his career and personal life.

The 'Never Say Never' singer, who released new single 'Boyfriend' on Sunday (8th April), says Usher has always advised him to "put family first" regardless of his pop success. 

"Usher is who I look to for guidance," Justin told Seventeen magazine this month. "From the beginning, he told me to put family first and you'll always succeed, because your family will never leave you.

The 'Mistletoe' singer added: "He told me to always stay humble and never forget where I came from."

Justin Bieber has previously confirmed that both he and 'Climax' singer Usher have recorded duets for each other's respective albums.

The 18 year-old singer also confirmed this week that his upcoming world tour to support third album 'Believe' will see him returning to perform in the UK.

Justin Bieber's new single 'Boyfriend' entered the Vodafone Big Top 40 at number two last weekend less than 24 hours after release.
