Justin Bieber is the first artist ever to have seven songs from his debut album chart on the Billboard Top 100. He had both Usher and Justin Timberlake clamoring to sign him, and after signing with Usher’s label, now counts the superstar as a close friend. He has performed for U.S President Obama and worked with Ludacris, Kanye West and Miley Cyrus amongst others. Oh, and he’s only 22 years old.
Justin Bieber's story is nothing short of amazing--especially when you consider that he really only started singing when he was 13 years old. In 2007, merely a couple of years before tickets for Justin Bieber tour dates became worth their weight in gold, the boy star entered a local talent content in his native Ontario, Canada. Competing against peers who, unlike himself, were vocally trained and preened for the stage, Justin Bieber showcased a natural talent which was impressive enough to win him second place.
Wanting to share his success with friends and family, Justin Bieber posted videos from the competition on YouTube. Encouraged by the enthusiasm of those in his inner circles, he followed up with videos of him singing covers of well-known songs by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Ne-Yo and Usher. In 2008, he was officially signed to Island Records. Just a year later, Justin Bieber released his first single, "One Time", which also became his first Top 20 hit. When Bieber released his first LP, My World 2.0, in 2010, he had become a global phenomenon. The album itself reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200, making Bieber the youngest musician to top the chart since Stevie Wonder in 1963. The song "Baby" reached the top 5 on singles charts around the world, and the album reached the Top 10 of many international charts.
After a popular acoustic album, a Christmas album, and his first hit concert film, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, Bieber began working on his third studio album. Even before Believe was released, the album's lead single -- "Boyfriend" -- was praised by new listeners, critics, and Beliebers, alike. In just a week, the song became the second-highest debut for digital sales ever. The song, along with the album, showcased a more mature sound from blossoming artist; shedding the bubblegum pop image that had entertained his fans at a younger age, in favor of a more developed, urban-inspired sound that showcased his deeper adult voice.
Concurrent with the opening of his second concert film, Justin Bieber's Believe, the artist embarked on a series of "Music Mondays", on which Bieber released a new song. After ten weeks, Bieber had released enough tracks for a limited release, iTunes exclusive album titled Journals. It came as no surprise when his fourth studio album, Purpose, debuted at #1 on the Top 200 in 2015. However, even Bieber himself was surprised when he became the first male artist in nearly a decade to have three #1 singles from one album: "What Do You Mean?", "Sorry", and "Love Yourself".
