He is one of the highest-earning artists under 30 and regularly tops charts: Justin Bieber. Although there are always negative headlines, the young singer is steadily making a career and is unlikely to stop there.
Justin Drew Bieber was born in March 1994 in Ontario, Canada. His grandfather has German roots, and he also gave his last name. Bieber’s mother was a single parent, and due to the low pay in her jobs, Justin Bieber’s childhood was characterized by poverty. He still kept in touch with his father.
Bieber grew up in Stratford, Ontario and had a relatively normal childhood there. He attended a French immersion school and played ice hockey there, even being offered a contract. Bieber showed an interest in music at a very early age and independently learned four instruments. From the beginning of his musical career he was taught by a private tutor in order not to have to drop out of school.
That career began when Justin Bieber posted videos of his singing on the internet as a 12-year-old. He wanted to show his friends his musical talent, but the videos went viral. In 2008, manager Scooter Braun became aware of the boy and invited him to his recording studio for demo recordings. US star Usher, who eventually took Bieber under his wing, also worked there.
After Justin Bieber signed his first record deal in 2008, he moved to the United States. In 2009, the first single “One Time” followed, which was in the top 30 charts in ten countries. It is true that Bieber had some initial difficulties because he was not supported by a large company like many other young stars. Nevertheless, in March 2010 he released his first album “My World 2.0”, which debuted at number 1 in Canada and the USA.
The first single “Baby” became a worldwide success and is still known everywhere. “My World 2.0” not only received an acoustic album and remixes, but also landed Bieber on his first world tour. In 2011, the film named after his well-known song “Never Say Never” was released, which is both a biography and a concert film. He grossed nearly $100 million.
In 2012, Bieber released his album “Believe” with the popular single “Boyfriend”. Three years later he followed up with “Purpose”. This album contained highly successful number one songs like “Sorry” or “Love Yourself”. After Justin Bieber landed a global hit with his remix of Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” in 2017, he continued to collapse with stars such as Ed Sheeran, DJ Snake and David Guetta.
Justin Bieber’s debut single “One Time” reached number 12 in the Canadian charts. The song also charted highly in the US, UK and Germany and was an instant hit. From the subsequent album, the song “Baby” was Bieber’s biggest hit. It remains one of his greatest achievements, garnering him greater notoriety, and has been in the top 5 in three countries.
In 2011 Justin Bieber released the song “Never Say Never” together with Jaden Smith. After the song was the theme song for Karate Kid, it has now entered the charts in Canada and the USA. Bieber quickly followed up with the next global success with “Boyfriend” in 2012: The song became his first number 1 hit in Canada and is still Bieber’s most successful song in North America.
In 2015 Justin Bieber released numerous successful singles. “Sorry” hit #1 in the US, “Love Yourself” did it in fifteen countries and “What Do You Mean” received 21 Spotify streams in just five days. The success of this album was followed in 2017 by “Despacito”, a remix of Luis Fonsi’s Latin song, which reached number 1 in several countries and became a world-famous catchy tune.
