The Australian singer-songwriter (real name: Jessica Newham) originally burst onto the scene late last year with "Somebody Loves You" as her debut single. It led to her self-released EP, "The Movement," that was available for free on her official website. Betty Who's manager told Billboard that her deal with RCA was already "several months" in the works before last week's proposal viral video.
Betty Who received national attention last week when Spencer Stout uploaded a video to YouTube featuring her song. He orchestrated a flash mob dance to Who's bubbly pop track "Somebody Loves You" in a Home Depot and then proposed to his boyfriend Dustin Reeser. The heartwarming clip has already garnered 9.1 million views as of press time. Her "The Movement" EP was then released to iTunes soon after.
"Their video inspired love in millions of people, and that's really all I've ever wanted to do," she told Billboard.
Billboard also reports that all of her plans she had before signing with RCA Records are still in place. Who is set to release a new single entitled "Heartbreak Dream" later on and it will preview her second EP.
