Justin Bieber appears on Mike Posner's new album.

'Cooler Than Me' singer Mike is returning with his second album later this summer and enlisted the help of Justin - who he formed a strong with after they wrote the teen star's hit 'Boyfriend' together - on a couple of tracks.

Speaking at OK! Magazine US's Pre-Grammy Party in Hollywood this weekend, Mike told BANG Showbiz: "A lot of amazing people have been helping me on this second album: 2Chains, Justin Bieber, Big Sean, Labrinth.

"Justin is a dear friend of mine, he's a good person, I love him. He wrote one song with me for the album, and he sings on another one."

Mike also has a plan to give back to those in need with his new record, after being influenced by Tibetan spiritual leader Tenzin Gyatso, The Dalai Lama.

He added: "I thought once I got a record deal and a big song that it would solve all my problems and I'd be happy ... I got them, but I didn't feel any happier.

"Then two years ago I had an epiphany. I heard a quote from the Dalai Lama and he said 'Figure out where your talent fits in to make the world a better place.' So I had this idea to make an album, and for every album sold, to serve a meal to a child in need.

"I didn't know how to do it, but I knew I had to do it. So I have teamed up with a food bank in New York, who I have been working with for the last two years. When the album comes out in the summer, I'll be serving meals."

The OK! Magazine Pre-Grammy party was held at Lure nightclub in Los Angeles and featured a performance by Jason Derulo.
