Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
After Bieber and model Hailey Baldwin were frequently spotted together during the summer of 2018, TMZ reported that the two had gotten engaged during a dinner in the Bahamas on July 7. The lovebirds had previously dated before splitting in 2016, even enduring a “long period of time when we weren’t friends,” according to Bieber, before rekindling their friendship and then their romance.
Bieber and Baldwin reportedly obtained a marriage license at a New York City courthouse on September 13, 2018, just two months after getting engaged. According to TMZ, Bieber was overheard saying, “I can’t wait to marry you, baby.” Later that year he confirmed he was a married man.
On September 30, 2019, the couple held a second, larger marriage ceremony at the Montage Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton, South Carolina.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Teen idol Justin Bieber broke the hearts of many of his young female fans in 2010 when he started dating television actress and singer Selena Gomez. It wasn’t easy for Gomez to be Bieber’s girlfriend, as she was accosted by some of his devoted followers. There were even death threats posted against her on Twitter after the pair was photographed kissing while on a 2011 vacation. The couple ended their relationship in November 2012, though they remained in touch on and off. In November 2017, Bieber and Gomez were spotted together publicly several times, stoking rumors that they had gotten back together.
Gomez’s chart-topping ballad “Lose You to Love Me,” released in fall 2019, was speculated to be about her relationship with Bieber.
Justin Bieber’s Albums and Songs
Bieber’s debut album, My World, hit stores in November 2009, selling more than 137,000 copies within a week. In 2010, Bieber released My World 2.0, which offered his growing fan base 10 new songs. Never Say Never was released in 2011, with a holiday album, Under the Mistletoe, coming out the same year. In 2012, the album Believe sold 374,000 copies in its first week, before the disappointment of the following year’s Journals, a downbeat album without a hit single.
Bieber made a big comeback in 2015 with Purpose, which became his fifth million-selling record in the U.S. by the end of the year. Following the release of Changes in February 2020, the 25-year-old became the youngest artist to have seven albums reach the top spot on the Billboard Hot 200, breaking the record once held by a 26-year-old Elvis Presley.
Some of Bieber’s hit songs include:
Bieber’s first single, “One Time,” went certified platinum in his native Canada shortly after its release in May 2009.
Bieber broke into the Billboard Top 10 in early 2010 with “Baby,” which also featured rapper Ludacris.
“All I Want for Christmas Is”
In 2011, Bieber released an album featuring his own take on such holiday classics as “All I Want For Christmas Is,” his duet with Mariah Carey.
Bieber had another hit single in April 2012 with “Boyfriend,” which appeared on his 2012 album Believe.
“Beauty and a Beat”
In October 2012, amid controversy over his offensive behavior, Bieber released another Top 10 hit with this party anthem featuring Nicki Minaj.
“Where Are Ü Now”
Bieber nailed a summer Top 10 hit with the Diplo and Skrillex collaboration “Where Are Ü Now” in 2015, helmed by R&B songwriter Poo Bear. In 2016, Bieber landed his first Grammy, winning for “Where Are Ü Now” in the category of Best Dance Recording.
“What Do You Mean?”
In October 2015, Bieber landed his first No. 1 single with “What Do You Mean?,” also produced with Poo Bear.
In January 2017, Puerto Rican singer-songwriter Luis Fonsi released the hit “Despacito” on YouTube; the video soon became the most-watched video of all time on YouTube. A few months later, after hearing the song in a nightclub in Colombia, Justin Bieber asked Fonsi to collaborate on a remix. Their song went on to hit the number one spot on the Hot 100; after 16 consecutive weeks in the top spot, it broke the all-time record as the longest-standing chart-topping song in August 2017.
