Initially, Julia Michaels made waves as pop’s go-to hit maker after writing songs for artists like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Ed Sheeran. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter ventured out on her own with her fluttery pop single, “Issues,” earlier this year. The catchy track has garnered over 100 million streams on Spotify, and counting. Michaels has now released the music video for the song, looking as comfortable in front of the camera as she is in a studio session.
“Issues” deals with the complications of the heart: the ups and downs of a relationship, and the need to focus on yourself. In the confessional song, Michaels admits, “Yeah I got issues, and one of them is how bad I need ya.”
The music video brings the lyricsalive as we see Michaels and her love interest spending time between the sheets and hanging out at a house party, all while balancing their love for one another and themselves.
“Issues” is the first taste of Julia Michaels’ debut EP, which is expected to arrive sometime this year.
