Everyone Thought Austin Mahone Was Going To Be The Next Justin Bieber, But His Record Sales Say Otherwise!

Many would guess Austin Mahone is one of the hottest pop stars for today's tween audience, but sadly, his record sales aren't mirroring that!

He has a legion of adoring fans, his musical talents are pretty AH-Mazing, and even though he doesn't like it, he's compared to the likes of Justin Bieber!

How is that not the recipe for success?!

Well, according to Avery Lipman, Republic Records president and co-founder, he's just as dumbfounded as the rest of us!

Lipman said:

"The kid can close down any mall in America, but we are struggling to sell a meaningful amount of records."

The numbers definitely don't add up!

The Nielsen SoundScan revealed that Austin's album, The Secret, sold a mere 46,000 copies when it first made its debut while JB sold roughly 137,000 with his debut record in 2009!

Looks like everyone can just stop with the Justin Bieber-Austin Mahone comparisons now.

    Most people don't want the first Bieber, so why would we need a second one?!?

    Re: rasheed
    What does being here on a gossip website have to do with anything?
    What a childish and pathetic "insult".
    Sorry I don't like your idols.

    i think its due to poor marketing. that tacky ass album cover that doesn't fit his brand at all may have added to that

    it's because nobody cares about his music! If he can colse down any mall it's because of groupies that just want to tell their friends they saw him! it has nothing to do with the music…

    What they don't include in those numbers are the albums that were sold with presale tickets for his summer tour. Had they not offered that promotion I'm sure sales would be a lot higher.

    Nobody was ever going to be the next Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber was created through an unlimited free press campaign by Google to promote Google owned Youtube. He was given billions of dollars of free press. Anybody given that amount of exposure would have been huge.

    i highly doubt he could close every mall in america. hyping him and lying about his potential stardom is what will make his career crash and burn. over before it starts. not one of my freinds or family members would recognize this kid, so no avery lipman, your product is sinking.

    Because nobody buys physical CDs anymore. Of they are counting iTunes and Google Play then that would be an upset…

    Also, Austin did a promotion where if you preordered his tickets you got the album free off of his website…

    Kids buy singles off of iTunes, not albums. So you can't use record sales as comparison anymore.

    What you didn't mention is that with every purchase of tickets for his second headling tour this summer, customers received a digital copy of the EP. If it wasn't for this promotion, sales would have been much higher, considering he sells out arenas in minutes. Austin is extremely talented (he has an amazing voice, can dance, and play 3 instruments) and has been very successful so far, including winning a VMA. He's has millions of fans and loyal mahomies around the world and the sales for this album should not in anyway reflect upon him. He pours his heart and soul into everything he does. And the reason a lot of people don't by the album is because they assume it's awful, just beacuse they've heard he's a "Justin Bieber wannabe," when in reality, he is not. He is the one and only Austin Mahone and is only being himself. Austin will continue to become more famous and more successful. I love you Austin and you know your Mahomies will always be by your side<3(:

    Austin Mahone doesn't want to be the BAD Bieber! Everyone thinks that
    and it's making it way worse! They keep spreading that rumor and people
    are not buying his album. He's very sweet, shy, and AMAZINGLY Talented,
    Ariana Grande isn't bad! She's HUGE TALK though. I think everyone should
    QUIT with the comparisons, and buy his album! He's clearly NOT as bad
    as everyone claims he is!
    :P {Mahomie}
