Justin Bieber (born March 1, 1994, in London, Ontario, Canada) is a Canadian musician and youth idol whose youthful appearance and catchy pop songs generated a worldwide sensation in 2009.

A single mother reared Justin Bieber in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, where he learned to play drums, piano, guitar, and trumpet. In 2007, he placed second in a local singing competition, and his mother uploaded a video of his performance on YouTube for friends and relatives who couldn’t attend. She subsequently published several amateur films in which Bieber sang famous rhythm-and-blues (R&B) songs while sometimes accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, which quickly gained notice beyond their intended audience. Scott (“Scooter”) Braun, a music promoter and talent agent, watched Bieber’s videos and encouraged the 13-year-old to record demos in an Atlanta studio. While there, Bieber met R&B superstar Usher and scheduled an informal audition with him. Usher had been struck by Bieber’s natural confidence and vocal skill, which helped sign him to a recording deal in late 2008.

Justin Bieber debuted his first single, the upbeat puppy-love ballad “One Time,” in May 2009, and six months later, he released the seven-track EP My World, mostly made up of glossy R&B-inspired pop. By this point, his fan base had grown to include innumerable preadolescent females who regarded him as a heartthrob, and the album had sold over a million copies. He repeated the feat with his full-length album, My World 2.0 (2010), which debuted at number one on the Billboard album list. Its first song, the yearningly sincere “Baby” (containing a cameo appearance from rapper Ludacris), peaked at number five on Billboard’s singles list, while numerous additional tunes cracked the Top 40. The official video for “Baby” was also the first to receive more than 500 million views on YouTube. Bieber’s immense popularity was enhanced by using social media platforms such as Twitter and regular television appearances.

Later in 2010, Bieber released the album My Worlds Acoustic, which included stripped-down versions of his songs, as well as an autobiographical book titled Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story. Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, a documentary film interlaced with 3-D concert footage, premiered the next year. Bieber maintained his prominence with the albums Never Say Never: The Remixes (2011), a companion to the film, and the Christmas-themed Under the Mistletoe (2011), both of which reached number one in the United States and Canada. Bieber’s equally successful Believe (2012) and Believe Acoustic (2013) albums had a more mature sound, with the smash track “Boyfriend” evoking Justin Timberlake’s suave R&B.

As Justin Bieber grew older, his notoriety frequently overshadowed his music. His love affairs (with Selena Gomez, among others) and periodic run-ins with the authorities garnered a lot of media attention. His 2015 album Purpose expanded beyond his young fan base, with each of its first three songs hitting number one on the Billboard Hot 100 list. In 2015, Bieber also sang on Jack Ü’s Grammy-winning electro-pop single “Where Are Ü Now.” Collaborations with other artists ensued, yielding numerous successful tunes. Justin Bieber’s marriage to model Hailey Baldwin in 2018 inspired “Changes” (2020). He released his sixth studio album, “Justice,” in 2021.
