Justin Bieber (pronounced /ˈbiːbər/, BEE-bər;
born March 1, 1994)[1][5]
is a Canadian pop/R&B[2]
singer. His performances on YouTube
were seen by Scooter Braun, who later became his manager.
Braun arranged for him to meet with Usher in Atlanta, Georgia, and Bieber was soon
signed to Raymond Braun Media Group (RBMG), a joint venture between
Braun and Usher,[6]
and then to a recording contract with Island Records offered by L.A.
Reid.[3][7]
His debut single, "One Time", was released worldwide during 2009, and
charted within the top 30 in over ten countries. It was followed by his
debut release, My World on November 17, 2009, which was certified platinum in the United States, which at the time gave
Bieber the highest debut by a new artist in the year, and made Bieber
the first artist to have seven songs from a debut album chart on
Billboard's Hot 100 chart.[8]
His first full studio release, My
World 2.0
was released on March 23, 2010, debuting at number
one and within the top ten of several countries. It was preceded by the
international hit song, "Baby".

Early life


Bieber was born on March 1, 1994 in Stratford, Ontario. Bieber's mother, Pattie Mallette, was
18 years old when she became pregnant with her son. Bieber was raised as
an only
child by Mallette, who worked low-paying office jobs, though Bieber
maintains contact with his father.[9]
As he grew, Bieber taught himself to play the piano, drums, guitar, and
trumpet.[10]
In late 2007, when he was twelve, Bieber sang Ne-Yo's "So Sick"
for a local singing competition in Stratford and placed second.[3]
Mallette posted a video of the performance on YouTube
for their family and friends to see. She continued to upload videos of
Bieber singing covers of various R&B songs, and Bieber's popularity
on the site grew.[7]
While searching for videos of a different singer, Scooter Braun, a
former marketing executive of So So Def, clicked on one of Bieber's videos by
accident.[9]
Impressed, Braun tracked down the theater Bieber was performing in,
located Bieber's school, and finally contacted Mallette. Mallette was
reluctant; she remembered praying, "God, I gave him to you. You could
send me a Christian man, a Christian label!"[9]
However, after praying with her church elders and receiving their
encouragement, she permitted Braun to fly Bieber, then 13,[7]
to Atlanta, Georgia to
record demo tapes.[9]
A week after arriving, Bieber sang for R&B singer/songwriter Usher,[11]
who arranged an audition with Antonio L.A. Reid at Island Def Jam
Music Group, who in turn signed him to Island Records in October 2008.[7]
Justin Timberlake was reportedly in the running to sign
Bieber, but he eventually signed with Usher.[12]
Bieber and his mother then moved to Atlanta, also the home of Usher and
Braun, to base his career.
Career


Bieber's first single, "One Time",
was released to radio while Bieber was still recording his debut album.[13]
The song reached number 12 on the Canadian Hot 100 during its first week of release in July
2009,[7]
and later peaked at number 17 on the Billboard Hot 100. During fall 2009 it had success in
international markets.[14]
The song was certified Platinum in Canada and the U.S. and Gold in
Australia and New Zealand.[15][16][17]
Bieber's first album My World, was released on November 17, 2009. Three
consecutive singles, "One Less Lonely Girl", "Love Me", and "Favorite
Girl", were released exclusively on the iTunes store and charted within the top forty of
the Billboard Hot 100.[18]
"One Less Lonely Girl" was later also released to radio and peaked
within the top fifteen in Canada and the U.S., being certified Gold in
the latter.[18]
My World was eventually certified Platinum in the U.S. and
Canada and Silver in the UK.[17][19]
To promote the album, Bieber performed in several live shows such as mtvU's VMA 09
Tour, European program The Dome, YTV's The
Next Star
and The Today Show,[10][20]
The Wendy Williams Show, Lopez
Tonight
, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, It's On with Alexa Chung, Good Morning America, Chelsea Lately, and BET's
106 & Park with Rihanna.
Bieber also guest starred in an episode of True Jackson, VP in late 2009.[21]
Bieber performed Stevie Wonder's "Someday at Christmas" for U.S. President Barack
Obama and first lady Michelle Obama at the White
House for Christmas in Washington, which
was broadcast on December 20, 2009 on USA television broadcaster TNT.[22]
Bieber was also one of the performers at Dick
Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest on December 31,
2009.[23]
Bieber was a presenter at the 52nd Grammy Awards on January 31, 2010. He was
invited to be a vocalist for the remake of We Are The World for its 25th anniversary
to benefit Haiti
after the earthquake. Bieber
sings the opening line, which was sung by Lionel
Richie in the original version.[24]
On March 12, 2010, a version of K'naan's
"Wavin' Flag" recorded by a collective of Canadian musicians
known as Young Artists for Haiti was
released. Bieber is featured in the song, performing the closing lines.
"Baby", the lead
single from the second half of his debut album, which
features Ludacris, was released in January 2010 and became
his biggest hit thus far, charting at number five in the U.S. and
reaching the top ten in seven other countries.[18]
Two digital singles, "Never Let You Go",
and "U
Smile" were top thirty hits on the U.S. Hot 100, and top twenty hits
in Canada.[18]
According to review aggregator Metacritic,
the album has received "generally favorable reviews".[25]
It debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard
200, making Bieber the youngest solo male act to top the chart
since Stevie Wonder in 1963.[26]
My World 2.0 also debuted at number one on the Canadian Albums Chart, Irish Albums Chart, and Australian Albums
Chart, and the New Zealand Albums Chart [18]
and reached the top ten of fifteen other countries.[27][28]
To promote the album, Bieber appeared on several live programs
including The View, the 2010 Kids Choice Awards, Nightline,
The Late
Show with David Letterman
, The Dome
and 106 and Park.[29][30]
On April 10, 2010, Bieber was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live.[31]
Bieber will begin recording his next album in the summer of 2010 in New
York City.[32]
British singer and songwriter Taio
Cruz has confirmed he is writing on Bieber's next project.[33]
Bieber's voice is now deeper than it was when he recorded his albums
because of puberty. The singer discussing his vocals remarked,
"It cracks. Like every teenage boy, I'm dealing with it and I have the
best vocal coach in the world. [...] Some of the notes I hit on "Baby" I
can't hit anymore. We have to lower the key when I sing live."[34]

According to Jan Hoffman of The New York Times, part of Bieber's appeal stems
from his YouTube channel. In contrast to singers whose careers were
launched by high profile franchises like American
Idol
or the Disney Channel, "Justin, his fans passionately believe, is
homemade. Long before he released his EP, “My World,” in mid-November,
the YouTube videos attracted millions of views."[9]
Braun recognized the appeal. Prior to flying him to Atlanta, Braun
wanted to "build him up more on YouTube first" and had Bieber record
more home videos for the channel. "I said: ‘Justin, sing like there’s no
one in the room. But let’s not use expensive cameras.’ We’ll give it to
kids, let them do the work, so that they feel like it’s theirs,"
recalled Braun.[9]
Bieber continues to upload videos to the same channel and has opened a Twitter
account, from which he interacts with fans regularly.[7]
The accounts also serve marketing purposes; for example, Bieber's music
video for "One Time" only began selling quickly after it was uploaded
to YouTube.[35]
Usher comments that while he and Bieber were both signed at the same
age, "I had the chance to ramp up my success, where this has happened to
Bieber abruptly." As a result, Usher, Braun, Bieber's bodyguard, Kenny,
and other adults surrounding Bieber constantly coach him on handling
fame and his public image.[9]
After signing Bieber, Usher appointed one of his former assistants,
Ryan Good, to be Bieber's road manager and stylist. Good, nicknamed
Bieber's "swagger coach", helped develop Bieber's public image. Good
created a "streetwise look" for the singer which consisted of baseball
caps, hoodies, dog chains and flashy sneakers. Amy Kaufman of The Los Angeles Times
comments, "Though a product of a middle-class suburban upbringing in
Stratford, Ontario, Bieber's manner of dress and speech ("Wassup man,
how you doin'?" or "It's like, you know, whateva' ") suggest he's
mimicking his favorite rappers."[36]
Bieber is often featured in teen
magazines such as Tiger Beat,[9]
and has been labeled a "teen hearthrob".[37]
