Julia Michaels releases video for ‘Happy’.

Julia Michaels releases video for ‘Happy’.

Julia Michaels used to write behind the scenes for the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, but has morphed into a solo artist in her own right - picking up a Billboard Top 10 with her feature in Clean Bandit’s ‘Miss You’, and receiving two Grammy Awards in 2018 for her debut single ‘Issues’. 

Following on with a similar theme, she released her EP ‘INNER MONOLOGUE PART I’ this year; it has gone on to receive acclaim from numerous contemporary artists and critics, debuting at #1 on the U.S. iTunes Pop Albums Chart.

‘Happy’ is the latest of her songs to receive a video treatment, and we witnesss Michaels dancing in a golden light - her childish dress and recurring child-like objects, such as a dollhouse, contrast with her repeating cries of “I just wanna be fucking happy”; juxtaposing the innocent with the dark. Michaels croons softly about craving sadness as a motivation for art and the self destructive tendencies of creative individuals - a true personal examination and, as the EP title goes, an inner monologue made vocal for all to hear.
