How did Justin Bieber get started?

Born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada to a teen mom, Justin Bieber played drums, trumpet and piano as a kid and participated in local singing contests. His mother, Pattie Mallette, posted videos of Bieber's performances online and he gradually grew a YouTube following and made money busking. Bieber was discovered on YouTube when his now-manager, Scooter Braun, stumbled upon one of his videos while searching for something else and signed him (despite some initial, seemingly anti-Semitic hesitation from Mallette).

In 2008, Bieber met Usher, who took the then-14-year-old under his wing—after a bit of a bidding war with Justin Timberlake. Usher introduced Bieber to industry tastemakers in April 2009, after he'd already been signed to a record deal, and gushed that the Canadian kid was a "young phenomenon. He's definitely a priority for me and Island Def Jam." Braun made a point to let Bieber's online following develop organically.

Bieber's first hit, "One Time," was released in July 2009.

He released his first EP, My World, in November 2009, and his second single, "One Less Lonely Girl," was a hit.

In 2010, his debut full-length album, My World 2.0, dropped, featuring his global smash "Baby" featuring Ludacris.

From there, Bieber just kept getting bigger, with hit albums BelieveNever Say NeverJournalsPurpose, Justice and Freedom, plus his holiday pop canon album Mistletoe all doing massive numbers. In February 2020, Bieber bested Elvis Presley to become the youngest artist to ever have seven albums hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

In August 2021, Bieber broke Spotify's record for most all-time monthly listeners ever, with a whopping 83.3 million.
