He’s seriously blowing up all over the world thanks to his 74 million YouTube hits, and Austin Mahone paid a visit to Y100 Miami to talk about his crazy life.

The “Say Somethin” hitmaker is coming off a sold out gig at New York’s Best Buy Theater, and his “Mahomies” have been building him up to be the next Justin Bieber.

When asked if he minds the comparison to the “One Less Lonely Girl” singer, Austin shared, “Not really, I think it’s flattering. I think it’s a compliment.”

Mahone also noted that his favorite moment in his career thus far was, “the time I went to Chicago and just got mobbed. I went to Chicago about a year ago, and I was just going to have a little meet & greet and I went there and then a thousand girls showed up. I thought two girls would show up and then like a thousand did.”
