Justin Drew Bieber is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Bieber was discovered by American record executive Scooter Braun and signed with RBMG Records in 2008, gaining recognition with the release of his debut EP My World; it reached number six on the US Billboard 200, while its singles "One Time" and "One Less Lonely Girl" peaked in the top twenty on the Billboard Hot 100.
Bieber's debut studio album, My World 2.0, debuted atop the Billboard 200; the youngest solo male act to top the chart in 47 years. The album also contained the international hit single "Baby", and established him as a teen idol. His second album, Under the Mistletoe, was the first Christmas album by a male artist to debut at number one on the Billboard 200, while his third album, Believe, saw experimentation with dance-pop and mature themes. Following Believe, Bieber faced several controversies and legal issues.
His fourth album, Purpose, was released in 2015; it was preceded by "Where Are Ü Now", a collaboration with Jack Ü, which saw Bieber explore EDM, and win the Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.
