Having been immersed into a society which finds comfort in watching videos online or secretly watching other people’s lives through a Facebook timeline, people nowadays have maximized the use of technology with all its advantages and disadvantages. We now listen to music through streaming and gone were the days when we needed to save up some money to purchase a disk because that’s the only option we had.
Many ambitions were started after a video post, and the likes or views it received along the way dictate if the act is fit for success. Pop music has been dotted with many artists and groups who swam through the world of YouTube and gained as many fans as they could before they made it big. Now, one feisty, talented lady is trekking the same path and Pia Mia is sure to be worthy of your time.
Using the aforementioned video sharing site, Pia Mia never actually dreamed of pursuing a singing career after all the clips she posted. Originally working as a full-fledged model, Pia Mia just wanted to share her talent online, encouraging others to do the same and reach for what they want in life.
The goddess-like face and the undeniable talent that have been channeled through her posts gained a million views, some of them awe-stricken by her innate vocal prowess. Through a twist of fate and conscious effort in between, Pia Mia blossomed into a budding pop musician and did wonders after quite some time in the limelight.
Pia Mia’s career began when she was introduced to the manager of Chris Brown who also happens to be the origin of his fame. Her early exposure to the industry’s juggernauts played well for her career to be fast-tracked into huge productions. One of the most memorable songs covered by Pia Mia in the early leg of her singing profession was ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’, which was originally sang by Drake way back in 2013.
Going back to where she left, her producers decided to post a music video of this track on her very own YouTube channel, adding a shock to her upgraded career undertaking. In December 2013, Pia Mia released her first ever single entitled Red Love on VeVo, which cemented her hopes into becoming one of the most renowned stars in pop and R&B.
The Gift, her first extended play, was then made available online, and one strategy that her management team used was making this venture free. As expected, many music fans took advantage of this and returned the favor by sending positive feedback about the EP. Furthermore, The Gift was soon released in iTunes, striking the interest of American record label Interscope Records.
The firm then sheltered Pia Mia under its wings and immediately planned huge campaigns for the YouTube sensation. A studio album is already in the works, with the lead single ‘Do It Again’ circling the national and international scope.
