Austin began his career by posting videos on YouTube in June 2010.[5] More music videos followed, and by January 2011 he began to build an online following.[6] In October 2011, Mahone posted a video covering Justin Bieber's "Mistletoe". On February 14, 2012, Mahone independently released his first single, "11:11", to iTunes.

On December 3, 2012, Mahone released a song titled "Say You're Just A Friend" featuring rapper Flo Rida as a digital download.[10] He later dropped the piano version of the song and revealed why he released the piano rendition of the song, explaining "I knew my fans love the original version, but I saw a lot of comments saying that they couldn't really hear my voice, so I wanted to reassure them that I can sing the song. I thought it'd be cool to not only have the original version but also the piano version and change it up."[11]
