Songfacts®:

  • Pattie Mallette gave birth to Justin when she was just 18 years old and raised him as a single parent. This guitar-driven ballad finds the singer paying tribute to his mom, which at a London press conference he explained is about, "the struggles she went through and how brave she was and I think the world needs to know that."
  • Justin unveiled the tune at midnight on Friday May 11, 2012 to mark America's Mother's Day holiday weekend, donating all profits from the track to charity. Before the song premiered he tweeted that money raised by the song would go "to helping other single moms." Justin added, "remember where u came from. #giveback."
