Even though “The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ,” is a prophecy that has been contested time and time again, “The Second Coming Of Justin Bieber” somehow resides in the form of a 16-year-old kid from San Antonio, Texas.
Justin Bieber is still very much alive as the “God of Pop,” or the King of Hip-Pop in today’s music landscape, but two is always better than one, right?
OK, there will never be another Justin Bieber, just like there will never be another Austin Mahone, because no two individuals, or pop stars, are alike.
That being said, allow us to re-introduce the young up-and-comer being heralded by everyone – including yours truly – as “The Second Coming Of The Biebs.” His name is Austin Mahone!
Just like his pop predecessor JB, Austin Mahone is amounting more and more of a following as time goes on, thanks to his numerous video postings on YouTube that started in 2010.
And with covers like Adele‘s “Someone Like You,” Chris Brown‘s “With You,” and Justin Bieber’s “Mistletoe,” which at one point actually became so popular it surpassed the Believe singer’s “Mistletoe” views, it makes all the sense in the world why he would have more people – particularly teen girls – check him out than Bieber. If you’re wondering, his fans are referred to as “Mahomies,” similar to Justin Bieber with his “Beliebers.”
No release date for his debut album is set as of yet, but he already has two singles out, “11:11” that dropped on Valentine’s Day, a move that shows he’s ready to capture the hearts of his mahomies, and “Say Somethin,” which definitely says something about the kid. What does it say?
Well, if you watch the “Say Somethin” lyrics video, and see Austin with his boyish looks, backwards cap, and congruence with Justin Bieber’s voice when he sang “Baby,” you’ll see it’s apparent that he’s Justin’s heir apparent.
Sure, he may go the same route as Bieber, incorporating hip-hop into his pop music – especially when he’s talked about chilling with Birdman and DJ Khaled, and wanting to link up with Drake musically – but it’s obvious that “The Second Coming Of Justin Bieber” will make a name for himself – his own name!
