Serving us his contemporary bedroom pop, we cannot deny how much we adore the music of Johnny Orlando. At just 17 years old, the Canadian singer-songwriter has already slated global stardom.
To give you a little refresher, he started by covering the tracks of Justin Bieber and Austin Mahone on Youtube. Then, eventually, he got signed under Universal Music Group last 2018. How amazing is that, right?
As he has taken the music industry by storm, we had an opportunity to get to know him more. And, we cannot wait to share our interview below!
W could say that Johnny Orlando offers a bedroom pop at first until recently when it transcended to booming head-boppy beats with cuts of lo-fi rhythm chops. At some point, Orlando obviously gravitated away from the usual pop-mix and melted us with a rendition of his heartfelt work.

His voice is crisp, naturally husky, and passionately soulful as he continues to evolve in his music. We can see this more with his new release, ‘Everybody Wants You’, a definite showcase of his growth both lyrically and as an artist.
Johnny Orlando’s take on his new track
Speaking of his new single, Orlando collaborated with New York-based songwriters/producers Pom Pom aka Kellen Pomeranz and Jesse Fink, with the singer-songwriter Soran Dussaigne (Soran). With their amazing teamwork, they have created a strong, ‘crank-up-the-volume’ track as an installment for Orlando’s upcoming sophomore EP, to be released tomorrow, October 23!
According to Orlando, he is definitely excited to share his upcoming tracks with the world. He honestly admits that he artistically found himself more through these new releases and he foresaw what kind of music he wanted to represent.
Oh! What’s more, he also shared the inspiration behind his latest track ‘Everybody Wants You’.
“The inspiration behind the song is… It’s like the four or five popular girls in your school. They just kinda like run the place, run your city and I mean I fell for one of them and I got hurt. So, it’s kinda where it came from.”– Johnny Orlando
This latest track is the follow-up to “See You” and what’s more exciting is the special re-release of his Gold-certified 2018 smash hit “What If,” re-titled to “What If (I Told You I Like You)” is the tip of the iceberg as his coming EP is bound to be like an outlet or a vessel that absolutely express his thoughts about some uncertainties in the future.
