You don't know Julia Michaels but you've sung along to her records. Justin Bieber's Sorry: That's one of hers. Likewise Hands To Myself by Selena Gomez and Love Myself by Hailee Steinfeld.
They're all songs that feel deeply personal, despite the singer receiving a fraction of the credit. That's Julia's secret: She persuades pop stars to open up and spill their guts like a packet of cornflakes within minutes of meeting them .
"I'm like, 'Come in. Sit on the chair. Let's talk. What's going on? What happened this week? Did that make you upset?'" she told Elle last year.
"I take everything they said in a span of 20 minutes and help them piece it together. I always try to get the most out of people."
Now she's turned the spotlight on herself for a "world, sit-up-and-pay-attention" solo song. Called Issues, it's a slight, but instantly memorable, piece of emo-pop.
The track was written by Julia along with Benjamin Levin, Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Storleer Eriksen and her usual collaborator Justin Tranter; and produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate.
It's out today and you can hear it below.
