Bieber released his debut EP, My World, in 2009 and his first full-length album, My World 2.0, four months later. His fan base quickly grew, thanks in part to his early hits “One Time,” “One Less Lonely Girl” and “Baby” — and his trendsetting swoop hairstyle.
The pop star went on to release two concert films, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Justin Bieber’s Believe, and three more albums. Since dropping his most recent, 2015’s Purpose, he has largely stayed away from the music world, sans for guest features on songs including “Despacito (Remix),” “Let Me Love You” and “I’m the One.”
In addition to his music career, all eyes have been on Bieber’s personal life since he hit the scene. He has made headlines several times for his bad-boy behavior, which included an arrest in 2014, and his high-profile romances and flings. He dated Selena Gomez on and off from 2011 to 2014 before briefly rekindling from late 2017 to early 2018. Bieber went on to marry Hailey Baldwin in September 2018.
