OFFICIAL VIDEO MAKES GLOBAL BROADCAST PREMIERE ON MTV LIVE, MTVU AND ON THE PARAMOUNT TIMES SQUARE BILLBOARD
22 APRIL 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, global pop artist Johnny Orlando returns with his first new music of 2022, a melodic pop ballad entitled “someone will love you better.” Released via Universal Music Canada/Republic Records, “someone will love you better” is available now at all digital retailers HERE.
Beneath its surface, “someone will love you better” signals a dive into a deeper era of artistry for Johnny Orlando. His evolution shines through on the new single, setting the stage for the arrival of Orlando’s highly anticipated debut album. The accompanying visuals for "someone will love you better," directed by longtime collaborator Iris Kim [renforshort, LOLO, Anna Sofia], is out now. Upon release, the visuals for "someone will love you better" made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and on the Paramount Times Square billboards. Watch “someone will love you better” HERE.
Speaking about the song, Orlando said "'someone will love you better' is the story of one of my friends who fell out of love with his partner. When he told me about it, I thought it was really interesting that you could care so deeply about somebody but still lose feelings for them over time. The lyrics reflect the realization of the falling out, the moment he broke the news and his hope that even though it wouldn't be him, somebody else would love her the way he once did."
Johnny Orlando kicked off his North American headline tour last night in Washington, DC. The tour continues tonight at Gramercy Theatre in New York, followed by stops in Boston, Montréal, Chicago and Detroit. See below for full tour dates. Tickets are on sale now at johnnyorlandomusic.com
