It’s only a few months to close the year, and with existing records plus more in view, one can tell that 2021 was quite successful for popular singer and star artist, Justin Bieber. Join in as we take a quick run through his career highlights for the year and how far he has gone with being an Artist of the year in 2021.
Releasing his latest studio album hit, Justice in March, American music star, Justin Drew Bieber kicked off a hot new era for pop lovers and fans across the world. On its release, the “Baby” singer sent out a heartfelt note on his Instagram and Twitter handles, sharing the essence of the newly dropped album, “In a time when there’s so much wrong in a broken planet, we all crave healing and Justice for humanity. This is me doing a small part, I want to continue the conversation of what Justice looks like so we can continue to heal”.
The album got a good reception and replicating the past success of all Bieber’s existing records. Justice arrived as the eighth No.1 album released by the artist, after debuting on Billboard 200’s top number in the United States. This astounding feat is not the first of its kind for Bieber as he has been recognized as the US Billboard’s youngest (25) solo artist to have seven number-one albums, braeking Elvis Presley records, who achieved it at 26, thereby making this a plus for the standing record he has made.
However, this time, it came with sweet icing on top as the record was perfectly complemented by a new US Billboard Hot 100 No.1 grabbed by his hit single, “Peaches” which hit the chart at the same time the album did. This earned Bieber another record-breaking, as he has been recognized as the first solo male artist to simultaneously debut at No.1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200.

So far, his 2021 music collaboration with other artists were great. Still basking in the euphoria of his album success, Bieber gets his African fans all revved up in August as he made an afrobeat music feature in the remix of the sensational platinum-certified “Essence” released by popular Nigerian Grammy Award-winning, Wizkid in collaboration with Tems. His music feature in Skrillex’s “Don’t Go”, came years after their first collaboration in 2015, made a superb record alongside Don Toliver. His collaboration with The Kid Laroi for “Stay” was even better, debuting as a chart leading number at No. 3 on the US Billboard 100 on its release in July.
His career success comes to play again barely two weeks after the music feature came out, as he hit another record for hitting 83.3 monthly listeners on Spotify, thereby making him Spotify’s all-time most listened-to artist in August with famous The Weeknd on his heels with just over 74 million listeners on the platform.
Taking the lead among popular singers of the year including Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, and Doja Cat among others, popular American superstar, Justin Drew Bieber bagged the Artist of the Year title again at the 2021 MTV Voice Music Awards in September, making it yet another big win in addition to the multiple music and movie awards the singer has received in 2021. In retrospect, looking at his career timeline, Justin Bieber’s radical breakthrough and stardom are not only remarkable but intriguing.
However, considering his global influence and life as a popular music star who’s always up and about, one would wonder how well his personal life fares. Well, the Bilebers’ favorite artist has got things in check, as he mentioned in his Justin Bieber: Our World Documentary in October that “My intention for 2021 is to set goals and have fun while doing them. Make sure I put my family first and hopefully squish out a nugget”, so yeah, we just might get to welcome a celebrity baby Bieber in the coming year.
