It is not easy to make a mark yourself in the music industry. While some struggle for years to make a name for themselves, a few artists become successful at a very young age. Fitting the description is youth sensation, Justin Bieber. Bieber became immensely popular during his early teen years with the song Baby. As we all know, the Sorry hitmaker was going through a tough time during the initial months of 2022. However, it seems like Bieber has some major updates for his fans.
Previously in September, Justin Bieber left fans in shock as he announced the cancellation of the world tour. The Love Yourself singer apparently suffered from partial face paralysis due to Ramsay Hunt Syndrome. But recently, Bieber signed a MASSIVE music deal.
Justin Bieber signs his biggest music deal
Over the past few months, rumours of Justin Bieber selling his music rights were making the rounds. And the latest reports suggest that the singer has signed a deal with Hipgnosis Songs Capital. This is one of the biggest music deals in the history of music. Reportedly, the music company purchased Bieber’s share of rights to his music for a whopping $200 million. While the Baby hitmaker is an incredibly popular star, the amount has left everyone in awe.
Furthermore, with this deal, Bieber has also set a benchmark for the other upcoming artists in the industry. Meanwhile, this is also Hipgnosis’s biggest acquisition to date. The deal will cover all the songs from Bieber’s catalog released before 31st December 2021. The singer released a total of six albums from 2010 to 2021. The catalog will also include some of Bieber’s biggest hits, such as Baby, Sorry, and What Do You Mean.
The Sorry singer is not the first artist to sell catalogs for such a massive figure. Apart from Bieber, Hipgnosis’s also purchased Justin Timberlake’s song catalog rights early this year for nearly $100 million. Meanwhile, pop singer Shakira joined the likes of Bieber and Timberlake previously.
Is the singer doing better?
It seems like Bieber has recovered decently from the facial paralysis. Previously, Hailey Bieber opened up about Justin’s Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, stating that the singer was doing better. And not long ago, the Ghost singer even attended Billie Eilish’s 21st birthday with his wife, Hailey.
Hopefully, the actor fully recovers soon and continues to drop music for his fans to enjoy. What are your favourite songs by Justin Bieber? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.
