By now, we all know Julia Michaels wrote Justin Bieber’s smash hit “Sorry,” but we never really knew why she gave it away and didn’t keep it for herself.
After going on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the truth has been revealed. Julia told Jimmy that the main reason she wanted to give away that song, along with many of her other tracks, was that she just wasn’t ready. She wasn’t ready to be in the spotlight, revealing so much of herself to the world. When she wrote “Issues” however, everything changed. It was at that moment she knew this was going to be her song and her song alone.
We’re so happy she decided to step out of her comfort zone and give us her incredible music. Watch her full interview with Jimmy below.
Julia then went on to perform her track “Worst In Me” off her mini album Nervous System. Check it out:
Was that not absolutely FLAWLESS?! So proud of everything you accomplished, girl!
