14 year-old pens hit “Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend,” releases viral youtube video.
Michaela Wallace, a 14 year-old Missouri native and independent artist, has released her first project: a 4-song EP entitled “Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend.” Produced by Nashville-based Sorted Noise, the pop/rock radio-ready EP includes the title track “Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend,” a teenagers reverie of becoming the beloved of the aforementioned pop star, which was co-written by Wallace and Nashville based veteran songwriters Deanna Harper and Paul Alan.
Youtube sensation Tyler Ward debuted the song and accompanying video as his Featured Artist of the Week on his personal Youtube channel which, with over 63 million total plays, is the 25th-most subscribed Youtube channel on the internet. Within the first 48 hours of it’s release, the video totaled close to 200,000 views, Michaela’s Youtube channel became the #1 most subscribed to musician’s channel of that week, and the EP shot to the number 32 position on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts, a spectacular feat for the debut of an unknown, independent artist.
Ward is partnering with major labels to release new artists via his Youtube juggernaut and this particular outing has quickly proven to be a massive success. A typical teen, Michaela loves music, sports, and shopping and is overwhelmed by the quick response to her first release as an artist. “I’m so excited about the release of my EP! I can’t believe it’s all happened so fast. I’ve always dreamed of this and now my dreams have come true!”
Ward, an expert at spotting hits-in-the-making said “I loved the professionalism of how the video was shot and it was so much fun that we had to post it as a Tyler Ward’s Featured Artist video.” Another dream of Michaela’s came true when she recently had the opportunity to meet Bieber at a Meet-and-Greet in Nashville. The “Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend” video features a clip of the twosome playing video games backstage, as well as clips of Bieber fans in the parking lot of the concert, singing along with the song. The song and video continue to gain momentum across the globe and it’s only fitting that a teen who dreams of being in the arms of a pop artist who was himself launched to stardom via the internet should follow in his foot steps.
