YMCMB has landed another pop artist. This time Birdman has convinced 17-year old Austin Mahone, a singer/dancer from San Antonio, Texas to sign on the dotted line.

People have been saying Mahone could be the next Justin Bieber (hurray..) and he recently performed his single “What About Love” during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show, where he also had the crowd talking about his all leather ensemble.

Austin Mahone‘s debut album Junior Year is slated for release later this year.
