To celebrate this accomplishment, Justin’s manager and friend Scooter Braun posted a super-sweet message on Instagram: 10 years ago today we launched the first single for this young kid @justinbieber that I believed could change the game. We literally had to make the song ourselves outside of our label budget (which wasn’t even open) and my friend @trickystewart made the song with us as a favor. We put it out with no plan other than let’s hit the road with this guy @ryangood24 that @usher brought on and my friend @kennyhamilton who worked at T-Mobile in atl. We used YouTube and social media (never been done before at that time) to try and prove everyone wrong. @allisonjamiekaye and I met this wild man @dankanter who might be one of the top 438 guitar players from Canada and added him to the team. We got a dj named @djtayjames off the college scene and off we went. @pattiemallette we were all so young but you trusted my vision for your boy and I thank you and honor you for that. 10 years later our lives have changed and that floppy haired kid has become a legend. But beyond all his achievements since …I’m proud of the young man he has become. His heart for others is incredible and his growth at such a young age is admired. We have come so far in 10 years and so many other hits have happened (literally one right now with @teddysphotos at the top of the global charts) both in music and in life. But one thing has remained constant… @justinbieber is my family and I’m proud of him and I love him like family. #onetime #10years – watch what we do the next 10 years.”

 

One Time is off of Justin’s debut album, My World.
