Austin Mahone Signs Record Deal – Is He The Next Justin Bieber?
Justin Bieber better move over according to some, because a new incoming pop star is making waves- Austin Mahone. He recently signed with Chase and Universal Records, rumored to be worth up to $4 million. It will include albums, licensed merchandise and publishing. Austin Mahone tweeted the news to his fans recently, which should delight his followers on YouTube and Twitter alike. Austin is rumored to be following Justin with his similar life story, hair, YouTube background, and music. He has expressed his wish not to be compared to Justin, yet sang his songs on YouTube and has a Bieber doll in the background. However, he once again expresses that he not copying Justin in his first set of YouTube video’s description boxes. As for news or planned album release date, nothing is set in stone yet. As for how he broke the news, here is the following tweet.
The BIG NEWS is that I’m officially signed to a record label!!!(: Chase/Universal Republic!!
Let me start off with a congrats to him, he will certainly live his dream come true but I do feel bad for Justin here. I feel like the world is already trying to replace him when he hasn’t done anything that would indicate that his heyday as over. His latest tour sold out already and fans have helped his lead single to break records. By all means I would think that would prove that he is anything but over. In a lot of ways, his career is still just starting since he is now on a new leg of his career with a more mature sound. So I am offended that some would think that a barely an adult mega star should be replaced.
How do you feel about Austin Mahone landing a record contract? That is good news for him and his family, but that isn’t the best news for an already diluted area of entertainment right now. He will be just another singer battling for top spot among fan girls and will likely be brought into the middle of fights among his fans. It will be interesting to see what sides will be drawn when Justin’s fans come to his defense.
