Rising pop diva Betty Who sets off on her Party in the Valley Tour today in support of her recent album release. Starting in Conneticut, she’ll spend her summer on the road traveling through Boston, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Hollywood, Nashville, Detroit and more for a complete North American trek.
The Australian singer-songwriter just released her second full-length album on March 24, The Valley, which has been celebrated by both fans and critics for its authenticity and deliverance of raw emotion. She brings some much-needed substance into her unique style of pop, which incorporates relatable lyrics with a seamless blend of catchy dance beats and dreamy melodies.
Shortly after the release, she shared with Bustle, “Now the album is everybody else’s issue. They can love it, hate it, but I did my part which was make a record that I love.”
Who had her first breakthrough single in 2012, “Somebody Loves You,” which eventually found its way to the Billboard dance charts and landed her a deal with RCA Records. Watch the music video below:
From Britney Spears to Bukowski, the 25-year-old songwriter has been inspired by a wide range of cultural influences and managed to incorporate each of them into the album, making each track a glimpse into her personal development as an artist.
Here’s her latest video for “Mama Say,” Who’s tribute to Britney:
Now, the Australian top-seller is well on her way to becoming a pop icon on her own terms. Betty Who has cemented a reputation as a strong LGBTQ+ advocate and is set to headline PrideFest Milwaukee on June 9.
Her Party in the Valley Tour has also proven a high demand for the singer, whose friendly confidence is a great model for fans of all ages. She doesn’t pretend to be perfect and knows she can’t impress everyone — a refreshing mindset in the pressured world of pop stars.
She tells Baeble Music, “I think that I’m a terrible dancer but I have so much fun doing it and so I love to do it more and more as I perform and grow. I love dancing and I always have. When I was young, many, many people told me that I was never going to be a dancer because I was too tall or too big or whatever… But tell me that I can’t do something and here I am, doing it professionally.”
