Written by Ankkit Siingh

It is no surprise that the fourth studio album, Purpose, of the mega-popular pop artist Justin Bieber, is a massive hit. The album was not only different than anything we have seen before but was also a much-anticipated one. Justin has amassed a huge fan-following for himself and it is due to his back to back hits over the years, and all the boyish charm that the popular star exudes.

From Youtube to platinum record sales

Justin Bieber wasn`t born with a silver spoon and he initially rose to fame via his YouTube channel. His first album was “My World” which went on to become a platinum hit in not only United States and Canada but also in the United Kingdom.

He’s a Canadian

Bieber was born in the year 1994 in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. At a young age, Justin Bieber took the second place in a local talent competition at a young age and later turned into a YouTube phenomenon. He then went on to sign a record contract with the American singer and songwriter Usher. Justin was the first solo artist who went on to have his four singles entering the Top 40 even before his debut album was out.

My world

Bieber’s first single, “One Time” was a massive hit and was certified platinum in his native country, Canada. His album My World matched that success as it sold a total of somewhere around 137,000 copies within a week.
Bieber broke into the Billboard Top 10 in early 2010 with “Baby,” which also featured rapper Ludacris. Bieber soon released My World 2.0 (2010), which offered his growing fan base ten new songs.

In 2011, Bieber went to the big screen with his concert documentary Never Say Never. This was again a hit as fans crowded movie theaters to know more about Bieber’s life behind the scenes. The movie’s box office revenue was around $73 million and had guest appearances by Kanye West ,Miley Cyrus, and Usher.


Purpose’s Justin’s fourth studio album and was released on November 13, 2015, by Def Jam Recordings. It is the follow-up to his third studio album Believe which came out in 2012. The album is already creating new records for Bieber and to promote the album he went on his third worldwide tour known as Purpose World Tour. As part of the world tour, he will be making his way to India, which is always a good news for both fans and fanatics(Beliebers).
