We can arguably say that Justin Bieber became a huge success in the past years and has created a huge positive impression on people which won’t reduce any time in the future. Today on his 27th birthday we are going through his life-altering singing career where he started as a teenager and has thrived to be the most popular and loved singer around the world.
Bieber released his debut EP, My World, in 2009 and his first full-length album, My World 2.0, in 2010. His fan base quickly grew, thanks in part to his early hits “One Time,” “One Less Lonely Girl” and “Baby” — and his trendsetting swoop hairstyle.
Along with his music career, all eyes have been on Bieber’s personal life since he hit the scene. He made headlines several times as a teenager because of his bad-boy behavior which comprised a DUI arrest and a vandalism charge, both in 2014 as well as his high-profile romances and flings. He dated Selena Gomez on and off from 2011 to 2014 before they briefly rekindled their relationship at the end of 2017. Bieber went on to marry Hailey Bieber in 2018 at a New York courthouse before walking down the aisle in front of their family and friends in South Carolina one year later.
Today on his birthday we will be coverings his most remembered moments that turned him from a teenager to the inspiring adult you see now.
The Ontario, Canada, native became a phenomenon on YouTube after mom Pattie Mallette posted videos of him covering songs such as Ne-Yo’s “So Sick” and Chris Brown’s “With You” as a preteen.
Justin signed his first deal with Island Records after his future manager, Braun, staggered upon his YouTube videos and flew the then-13-year-old out to Atlanta to sing for Usher.
The singer published his first EP, My World, which included a collaboration with mentor Usher titled “First Dance.” It struck No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart, earning it the biggest debut for a budding artist that year.
Justin’s first album, My World 2.0, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, rendering him the freshest solo male artist to top the chart since Stevie Wonder in 1963. The album comprised collaborations with Ludacris (“Baby”) and Sean Kingston (“Eenie Meenie”) and was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the Grammys. Later that year, he released an acoustic version of the album.
The achievement of Never Says Never that Justin published for his Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe was unquestionable. In extension to lead single “Mistletoe,” he teamed up with Mariah Carey for a “super festive” version of her 1994 classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” Other collaborations included Usher, Boyz II Men, and Busta Rhymes. Justin at the time was growing at a huge speed.
Justin’s third album, Believe, which was also introduced at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, marked a withdrawal from his teen pop sound with more dance and R&B sounds. He released five singles: “Boyfriend,” “As Long as You Love Me” showing Big Sean, “Beauty and a Beat” featuring Nicki Minaj, “Right Here” along with Drake, and “All Around the World” featuring Ludacris. To promote the album, Justin set out on a world tour and, like My World, later released an acoustic version.
Justin was charged with misdemeanor vandalism for tossing eggs at his neighbor’s home in the Calabasas area of Los Angeles. He implored no contest to the charge and was ordered to pay $80,000 in compensation, serve two years of probation, and complete anger management classes and community service. He settled a lawsuit with the neighbors in November 2018. Around this time Justin’s image in people was a little shaky but he came back through with his songs.
The pop star’s fourth album, Purpose, was showcased at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and comprised some of his most successful singles to date, having “What Do You Mean?,” “Sorry” and “Love Yourself.” It was nominated for four Grammys, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year for “Love Yourself.” These songs touched everyone and brought everyone back to Biber fandom. Justin won his first Grammy in Feb 2016 when he took home Best Dance Recording for “Where Are Ü Now” with Jack Ü’s Skrillex and Diplo.
After taking a long break Justin makes an entry back into the singing world with his singles “Yummy” and “Intentions reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The entertainer executed his first full-length concert in more than three years on New Year’s Eve from the roof of The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. For the day he released his solo “Anyone” by singing it live on the stage in addition to doing classics like “Baby” and “Love Yourself.”
