It was certified Platinum in the U.S. He became the first artist to have seven songs from a debut record chart on the Billboard Hot 100.

His U.S. album and singles sales total 44.7 million. He has sold an estimated 100 million records, making him one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
Bieber has won numerous awards, including the American Music Award for Artist of the Year in 2010 and 2012.
