We’re only four months into 2013 and it’s already off to a stellar start for two of the hottest acts in pop music -– One Direction and Justin Bieber.

2013 has to be one of the biggest years of 1D’s career so far with the success of their sophomore album Take Me Home, which earned them a giant world tour ( anda waxification by Madame Tussauds).
But we’re only brushing the surface for the fellas, because we obviously can’t forget their 3D documentary This Is Us coming out this August, which is bound to be a box office success. Obviously Directioners will make it happen!
On the other hand, Justin has been in this game for quite some time now, but he has to take home the win for best collaborations so far. He’s got working with Drake, Nicki Minaj, will.i.am, Mike Posner, Big Sean and Ludacris all under his belt, and let’s face it -– there will be more coming our way. Maybe one with 1D perhaps?
Plus, he always knows how to get people talking with his hilarious SNL skits, making out with mannaqins on late night TV, epic marketing techniques for his “Beauty and a Beat” music video -– phew! Boy knows what he’s doing!
