Julia Michaels has written songs for all your popstar faves. Everyone, and I mean everyone[!] - from Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Little Mix, Demi Lovato, Hailee Steinfeld and Fifth Harmony, to Ed Sheeran and Nick Jonas.
If you want to get mathematical about it, to date, the songs that Michaels has co-written exceed over 8 billion streams (with the consumption equivalent of over 50 million songs sold worldwide). So yeah... she’s a talented songwriter to say the least.
Now, Michaels has released her first ever solo single, 'Issues', which is the first song to drop from her forthcoming debut EP (expected to be out sometime this year) and the perfect pairing of emotive instrumentation soundtracking ardently frank lyrics.
