Justin Bieber Writes Song About Paternity Scandal

25 April 2012
Justin Bieber isn't leaving behind last year's paternity scandal until he shares his two cents on the allegation — musically, at least.

Just a day after his Twitter jab at 20-year-old Mariah Yeater, the pop superstar held a listening session for his new album, Believe, and revealed that the paternity case is just one of many subject matters he covered on the project.

According to the BBC, Bieber said his inspirations included "that girl — Mariah Yeater — who said she was going to have my baby," adding: "I wrote about that situation."

When asked to choose his favorite song on the June 19 release, Bieber struggled to answer. "Every song has a piece of me; it's hard to pick," he said. "I wrote almost all of them or co-wrote them."

Yeater definitely played a big part in Bieber's 2011. The California woman kept the singer at the top of the headlines when she alleged he was the father of her then-3-month-old child.

Bieber's baby-mama-drama track is just one of 40 songs he's recorded for the LP, which also reportedly features collaborations with Taylor Swift, Ludacris and Kanye West.

In another interview during his promotional blitz, the singer dished details about his duet with Drake, even revealing the title of the star-studded track. "The song's called 'Right Here' and it's a smash!" he told Capital FM. "People are gonna love it. It just rides so smoothly."

Two acts Beliebers won't see on the album are One Direction and the Wanted, as the star denied rumors of hitting the studio with the teen heartthrobs.
