2015: The Year Justin Bieber Bounced Back After Finding His

This time last year it if you’d predicted that Justin Bieber would soon equal chart-records previously held by The Beatles and Elvis, no one would have taken you seriously. After all, 2014 Justin Bieber was more likely to get on the wrong side of the law than to the top of the charts. But in 2015 the singer managed to turn his career around and become more relevant than ever, thanks to a string of hit singles and his most accomplished album to date.

Justin Bieber2015 was the year of Justin Bieber.

Justin started the year with a Calvin Klein ad campaign which had more people thinking about buying Photoshop than a new pair of underwear. In February he released an ‘apology’ video in which he expressed regret over times his behaviour had seemed ”arrogant and conceited,’’ in an attempt to repair his public image.

Then in March Comedy Central aired ‘The Roast of Justin Bieber’, in which the 21 year old tried to show that he knew he’d messed up in the past, but was able to laugh at himself with the help of some celebrity friends. But while Bieber’s public image might have been slightly improving, it was going to take much more to resurrect his music career.

But then came ‘Where Are U Now?”, Bieber’s collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo. Both producers had done a good job in hyping the song and promising we were going to hear a Bieber like we never had before and they were right. The song eventually became a bonfire summer anthem and gave Bieber his first US top 10 hit since 2013’s ‘Beauty and a Beat’. But there was still more to come.

In September Bieber officially began his new hobby of breaking chart records when ‘What Do You Mean?’ entered at number one on the Billboard chart, giving him his first US number one. He also became the youngest male artist ever to debut at number one on the chart.

Then came ‘Sorry’ in October, which debuted at number two on the Billboard charts and took the number one spot in eight countries across the globe. But three weeks after ‘Sorry’s’ release Bieber dropped his third album Purpose, which began a run of record-breaking chart successes for the 21-year-old.

Purpose debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart for the week ending November 19, selling 649,000 units and beating One Direction to the top spot. By the end of 2015 Bieber had become a chart-record smasher, as Purpose’s tracks climbed both the US and UK charts.

In November Bieber became only the third artist in Billboard chart history to have three singles within the top five, with ‘Sorry’, ‘What Do You Mean?’ and ‘Love Yourself’. Over in the UK he became only the third artist ever to replace themselves on top of the UK singles chart, the other two being Elvis Presley and The Beatles.

In the space of less than a year Justin Bieber has gone from being the butt of many a music critic’s joke, to one of 2015’s most successful artists. With Purpose Bieber has not only cemented his comeback, but enjoyed the most critically and commercially successful period of his career so far. Who knows what this reinvigorated Bieber has in store for us in 2016. But judging by his recents successes he now has more Beliebers behind him than ever before.
