Justin Bieber 2.0

By Cynthia Andary 

Australian singer-songwriter and music producer Eddie Benjamin released his debut album Emotional in 2021. Before creating his own music, he wrote and produced songs for Meghan Trainor, Earth Wind & Fire, and Shawn Mendes. Popstar Justin Bieber recognized Eddie’s talent and invited him to perform as a special guest for the Justice 2022 World Tour. Bieber took Eddie under his wing and mentored him throughout the tour and his music career. During the tour he released a single titled “Weatherman.” I attended the Justice tour just after its release and he performed it for the first time during the show, which was how I discovered him. After hearing it for the first time, my friend and I started to listen to it regularly. Justin giving Eddie the opportunity of touring gave him the exposure to build a bigger audience, and Justin even labeled him as “the next generation.”
