As of now, people consider Justin Bieber to be the most successful Canadian artist. He started out as a child who had songs that were very teeny-bopper, but he managed to create songs that people would appreciate no matter what their age is after some time.
He has gone through a lot of controversies, and people have booed him in some places because of his alleged behavior. He has also gone through some run-ins with the law. As he aged, he also started to make some differences with his life. He still holds the record for the most number 1 hits at 164 weeks. He has sold about 150 million records all over the world, which is really a success for any artist.
Justin Bieber was born in 1994 in Canada. He came to the U.S. in order to promote his music. He began singing and putting his singing videos on youtube at an early age. Then in 2008, a recording company signed him. He produced his first album in 2009. This album had seven songs appear on the Billboard Hot 100. No other artist has ever been able to do that.
Some of his achievements include winning the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. The prime minister of Canada gave him that. He also has received ten Grammy nominations plus multiple other nominations and wins including the Teen Choice Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards and the Billboard Music Awards. He probably is the most successful Canadian artist of all time.
