Justin Bieber has been rocking the pop world for the best part of six years now. The young Canadian multi-instrumentalist and multi-award winning artist, who was accidentally discovered by Scooter Braun from So So Def Recordings back in 2007, has grown into a fine young man and is still a credibly artist.
Following four number one album releases, sold out world tours and countless number one singles, Justin Bieber seems to have delivered his best album yet in late 2015. Purpose was released through Def Jam and School Boy recordings and was produced by heavyweight producers such as Diplo and Skrillex, whom have heavily contributed to the sound of the album.
Purpose topped the charts in the UK and so did all three singles, What Do You Mean?, Sorry and Love Yourself. In fact up until last week Love Yourself was still topping the UK singles chart until Shawn Mendes’ single Stitches snapped the top spot. Even though Justin is no long number one in the charts, he still is in many ways and below are a few videos to illustrate that point.
5. Number two, three and four
Yes Justin Bieber might not longer be number one but he is still very much at the tip of the top the charts with three of his most recent singles sitting at number two with Love Yourself, Number three with Sorry and number four with the lead single of the album What Do You Mean. What Do You Mean was released last summer guys and its still number four in the singles chart, if that’s not winning I don’t know what is. You can watch the video below:
4. He doesn’t even need to be in his videos
Have you noticed that Justin Bieber didn’t even bother appearing on his last two music videos Sorry and Love Yourself? Well that’s coz the music speaks for itself or maybe because both videos are so artistically beautiful that there was no need to include the singer. Even so both tracks topped the charts and are recognises as some pretty great singles whether you’re a Belieber or not! Just check out how beautiful Love Yourself is and you’ll see what I mean:
3. He appears on other people’s videos without stealing the show
Justin has appeared on a couple of vidoes of fellow Canadian singer, Carly Rae Jepsen including her hit single I Really Like You, which starred Tom Hanks. Yeah right Tom Hanks wasn’t enough, Carly also wanted some of that Bieber touch and you know what it worked, I loved the song and I loved his surprise appearance right at the end of the video. Any fan will have seen it but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t watch it again right?
2. He’s still surprising
How you might ask? Well after Justin Bieber had started growing into a young man and stopped looking like a young teen it seemed like perhaps his career was about to hit the halt button. And his third album was a little here and there but he did a few interesting things, which turned out to be great and no I am not talking about certain leaked pictures. In 2015 Justin surprised a lot of people by featuring on Jack Ü’s (Skrillex and Diplo) joint venture. In fact it was annoying a few none beliebers, who suddenly had to like him. The song topped the charts in countless countries and proved that Bieber was here to stay.
1. Sorry, not sorry
Just before the holidays Justin Bieber’s single Love Yourself was meant to take to top spot at Christmas but instead the young singer urged his Twitter followers to buy the charity single, A Bridge Over You from The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir instead and he wasn’t even sorry about it. In fact he said it was ‘OK not to be number one for a week’. This week Justin Bieber may have lost his number one title but in many ways he seems to be ahead of any competition and he needn’t feel sorry indeed.
No matter where you stand on the Bieber front you will have to face the fact that his reign is not over yet, not even by a long shot.
