Immediately, Bieber began making waves on the charts. In 2010, his song "Baby" featuring Ludacris reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. He's had ten such hits to date, half of them hitting No. 1, but along the way, he grew up fast and wild, and he soon earned the ire of anyone outside the "Belieber" clan, maybe even some of those fans. His bad boy image almost buried him, but a chance collaboration with Skrillex and Diplo's Jack U changed the course of his career forever.
Today, Bieber is back in the good graces of most, and his last album Purpose earned him even more fans. He's all grown up, and so is his music, and his whole catalog continues to inspire singers, producers and musicians across the musical landscape. Today, we celebrate his triumphant story and career with 10 of our favorite Justin Bieber covers. Iconic singers in their own right have tried their hand at his hits. Which one is your favorite?
Justin Bieber - "Die In Your Arms" (Ariana Grande Cover)
Back in 2012, Ariana Grande was better known for her acting career than her insane, Mariah Carey-esque voice. She starred on Nickelodeon's Victorious, and while she released a track on the show's soundtrack, this cover of Justin Bieber's single from third album Believe helped prove her stunning vocal chops. It introduced her skills to a generation that continues to show the superstar love, and we've got to show it love on a list like this.
Justin Bieber - "Sorry" (The Vamps Cover)
British pop rockers The Vamps hit the BBC Radio 1 ?Live Lounge to give a rowdy rendition of this Purpose No. 1. They handle the island flair with punch and there's serious percussion going on. Something the Biebs can probably appreciate, being a drummer himself.
