Starting as a YouTube star and becoming a budding musician, Justin Roberts is proof that anything is possible!

We recently got a chance to catch up with the 16-year-old – who just dropped his latest and greatest single “Way Too Much” – to find out how he went from a vlog star with over one million subscribers to stepping foot in the studio:

“[Music] was always something I wanted to do, but never really thought I could…but then I actually went into the studio, tried and made a song. Then I liked it so much I wanted to do it more.”

How did Justin know that music was the next step in his career? Well, thanks to the fans of course! After he released his first-ever song, the fan’s reactions were enough for him to start working on new songs. From there, “Way Too Much” was released and the rest is, as they say, history!

“What made me really want to start [music] was when I dropped ‘Six Figures’ and the fan reaction was so great. They wanted more music and I was like ‘this is what I’m going to do’ because it’s what they want and I like doing it.”
