Eat your heart out, Justin Bieber.

YouTube sensation and teen heartthrob Austin Mahone created “Mahomies” frenzy on Miami Beach, Fla., this weekend when he ditched his shirt for an afternoon swim with gal pal Hailey Baldwin, the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin.

The 16-year-old from San Antonio, Texas has recently been making young girls’ hearts aflutter with catchy pop songs and clean-cut cuteness — and his new crop of shirtless photos will probably prove no different.

So why is every calling Mahone the “Baby Bieber?”

Like the 18-year-old pop sensation, Mahone is packing concert venues with hundreds of screaming fans.

Recently, Celebuzz caught up with singer at New York City’s Best Buy Theater before his sold-out show to chat about his rise to fame and his encounter with the Biebs himself.

Watch below to see what advice Justin gave him during their famous meeting.
