Usher was helping Justin Bieber make his fortune long before the youngster became the R&B superstar's protege - the teen's version of his future mentor's "U Got It Bad" helped him earn up to $200-a-day busking.

The "Baby" singer grew up without much money and had to perform on the street for his little luxuries - like trips to Disneyland. He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I sang 'I'll Be' by Edwin McCain, 'You and Me' by Lifehouse, 'U Got It Bad' by Usher and 'Cry Me A River'. I'd make $200. My mom and I went on vacation to Disneyland with the money I made."

Justin Bieber started his career on YouTube posting a video of himself singing which became an instant hit. Justin Timberlake and Usher were both interested in signing him to their respective labels but Bieber preferred to go with Usher. He has since released "My World" and "My World 2.0", the latter which even surpassed Usher's "Raymond Vs. Raymond" on first week sale.
