Johnny Orlando, the 17-year old, Toronto-born singer, songwriter and actor, has followed his hit EP "Teenage Fever", with a much-awaited new single, entitled, "Everybody Wants You."
The track is the carrier single of Orlando’s upcoming sophomore EP, scheduled for release in late 2020.
“‘Everybody Wants You’ is the first real taste of my upcoming EP, which I have been working on for over the last year,” says Orlando. “This track really shows my growth as both an artist and an individual. I feel like I have finally found myself artistically in terms of the direction I want to go sonically, and what I want my music to represent. I know my fans have been eagerly anticipating new music, so I am so excited to finally share ‘Everybody Wants You’ with the world!”
“Everybody Wants You” is the follow-up to Orlando’s single “See You” and the special re-release of his Gold certified 2018 smash hit “What If,” re-titled to “What If (I Told You I Like You)” earlier this summer due to the massive success the song was receiving on TikTok. On TikTok globally, “What If (I Told You I Like You)” received over 12 million video creations resulting in over 5 billion views and was trending in over 15 countries including the U.S., U.K., Germany, Brazil, Canada and Australia. For one week in July, it was the #1 most used track (and Orlando the #1 most used artist) by video creations, beating out the likes of BLACKPINK, DaBaby and Drake. Orlando’s international impact and musical talent were recognized further this past July when he signed a global talent deal and consumer products partnership with MTV/ViacomCBS. Orlando took home his first-ever MTV Europe Music Award in 2019 for Best Canadian Artist, an accolade previously secured by Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber.
Orlando is now set to release his second EP, which is a culmination of the person he has become over the last year, but as he has learned, far from the person he will be in a year’s time. "It is a reflection of the now, a time filled with fears and uncertainty, but an underlining sense of hope," Orlando said.
