Time to celebrate, Mahomies — Austin is officially an adult! On April 4, the up-and-coming pop star turned 18 and to celebrate, we’re looking back at his fabulous year in photos!
It’s been quite a year for Austin Mahone. After overcoming a scary throat illness, the singer released an irresistible new track, “Banga Banga,” which he performed live at the MTV EMAs on Nov. 10 and again at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov. 28. Ever since then, he’s kept the hits coming, releasing the sexy love song “U” on Valentine’s Day and his latest video, for “Mmm Yeah”, on March 13. Let’s see what else Austin has to celebrate!
Austin Mahone’s Birthday — Singer Celebrates Turning 18
Austin Mahone is on a roll! After releasing hit after hit before he even turned 18, Austin announced on his birthday, April 4, that he will be releasing his long-awaited debut album, The Secret, on May 27.
And that’s not all — Austin also revealed that he will be going on a huge tour this summer! The singer’s three-month MTV Presents Austin Mahone tour will kick off on July 25, and he will visit 26 lucky cities across America.
“This is for my Mahomies,” Austin said in an official statement. “Thank you for supporting me and sticking with me all this time. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to be able to announce new music and a huge tour for all you guys!”
This certainly is an awesome gift for Mahomies! And that’s not all Austin has been up to lately.
The teen sensation is also recording new music with Justin Bieber! Austin took to Instagram on April 1 to share a pic of himself hanging out in the recording studio with the Biebs, Young Money president Mack Maine and Cash Money founder Birdman. He captioned the pic, “What an amazing song last night..The world isn’t ready! @justinbieber.”
That’s where you’re wrong, Austin — we are SO ready!
Happy birthday, Austin Mahone — we hope your 18th year will be your best one yet!
