Justin Bieber reports on his tenyear career
11.18.2019 / News author: Alexandra
The results were going to start arriving just two months later with the release in January of Baby, the first single from My world 2.0, the Canadian studio album that expanded what was heard in the EP, in which he collaborated with Ludacris. Justin Bieber became the youngest artist to lead the US sales list almost 60 years after his predecessor: Stevie Wonder. Although the musician was already a popular face thanks to his internet music videos, there is no doubt that Baby was a catapult in his career of Justin Bieber. It was a worldwide phenomenon and today accumulates more than two billion views on the popular video platform. The disc that contained it sold more than 8 million copies. Surprisingly, it has not been his greatest success. With Under the mistletoe and with Believe he was going to continue to increase a legend that would end up exploding in Purpose, the disc with which he broke all his personal records. The Canadian ranked Top 3 on the UK hit list with What Do You Mean (3), Sorry (2) and Love yourself, co-written with Ed Sheeran (1), a milestone that neither The Beatles nor Madonna not even Michael Jackson had achieved before. The result in Spain, the United States, Australia, the Netherlands, Canada, France ... was not very different.
With just 21 years he had been living as a mass idol for half a decade: dolls, posters, cushions ... even chocolates with his face! Teenagers camp for weeks to see him in concert, “sold out” posters are hung up within a few hours of selling their concert tickets and their income always puts him on the lists of the richest artists of the year. And as we all know, the price of fame is not cheap, precisely. And less for a billionaire teenager who was allowed to do almost everything. Fights with his neighbors, fights with the paparazzi, fights with the press, fights with some exalted fans, drugs, alcohol ... There was no day that Justin Bieber did not fill headlines with his scandals. In recent years it seems that he has left that facet behind to focus on his personal life (he has married Hailey Baldwin) and his music (his fifth album is at the door). Throughout his career he has recorded a total of four studio albums, of which he has sold millions of copies and those who have followed monstrous world tours. The last one, Purpose World Tour, in 2016, considered one of the most profitable in history, reaching 250 million dollars with it. Not to mention the more than two hundred awards he has won throughout his career (Grammy, Emmy, Ten Choice ...) some of which are exposed in an exhibition to his name in the main museum of his hometown.
