Well, not exactly Australia’s answer but kind of looks like it is. Cody Simpson, raised in Australia’s Gold Coast is trying his luck in the US. The then 12-year-old YouTube discovery who covered tracks by Jason Mraz, Justin Timberlake and the Jacksons. Just this April, Cody now 13 signed with one of the biggest record labels, Atlantic Records immediately collaborated with Flo Rida, Frankie, B Major and Colby O’Donis on his debut single.
The debut single, ‘Iyiyi’ which features rapping vocals from labelmate Flo Rida is expected to hit US digital stores this Summer. Personally, I’m not actually digging the track because it sounds like a left-over Justin Bieber track and ‘Iyiyi’ a single name? Come on, you’ve got to think something better than this. But oh well, maybe some will like it , some might not. But I’m rooting for this kid to hit puberty first than Bieber. Who’s with me?
Listen to Cody’s debut single to be released June 1st on iTunes US.
