Betty Who

Casting a striking presence as a performer, emanating confidence as a writer, and inspiring as an independent force, Australia-born and Los Angeles-based pop star Betty Who has quietly elevated herself to a worldwide phenomenon on her own terms.

Acclaimed by Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, Rolling Stone, Buzzfeed, Elle Magazine, and more, Betty’s sophomore album, The Valley, yielded a string of international hits, including “I Love You Always Forever” certified double-platinum in Australia and “Human Touch.”

Beyond countless sold out tour dates, she’s delivered knockout television appearances on The Today Show, Late Night With Seth Meyers, The View, and many more aside.

Her third studio album, Betty, is out now with new music to follow this summer.

Prior to debuting on the Hot 100 chart with “Ransom,” the 17-year-old rapper gained a following with buzzing hits like “Love Me,” and “Molly Girl.” “Did it Again” charted at #4 New & Hot Worldwide on SoundCloud and has over 14 million plays at #16 in the Top 50 Worldwide.
