Austin has made it into Billboards 2013 21 Under 21 list. He is at number 7! Last year they ranked his as one of the ‘Ones To Watch’. So he got a mention but wasn’t in the list. Here is what they said about him:
Austin Mahone has officially crossed over after spending years growing a fan base through YouTube performance and social media. This year, the rising pop singer scored his first-ever Hot 100 single with the RedOne-produced scorcher “What About Love,” and snagged an opening spot on one of the year’s biggest tours — Taylor Swift’s “Red” run. Mahone punctuated a hugely successful summer by performing on the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show, and then winning the Artist To Watch VMA hours later in front of millions of viewers. With a debut album coming soon on Chase/Republic, Mahone could climb even higher on next year’s 21 Under 21 ranking.
