Due to the nearly instant popularity of Justin Bieber as well as his young age, every new male singer that is, say, below the age of 16 is now immediately compared to the next Justin Bieber.
Cody Simpson, 13, is the newest singer to fit that description. Hailing from Australia, this talented singer was discovered by Grammy-nominated producer Shawn Campbell after he watched Cody perform a cover of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.”
Cody has since flown to the United States to record some tracks and has landed a deal with Atlantic Records. He released his first single, “iYiYi” featuring Flo Rida, on June 1st.
The single is already a big hit, so we had to ask Cody what the ride has been like thus far:
“Flo and I worked with some amazing people, including Colby O’Donis, Bei Major and DJ FrankE on my debut single,” Cody said. “We came up with something really catchy, and I think everyone can relate to the lyrics. The song is about liking a girl and missing her when she’s not around. Who hasn’t been through that?”
