Baby Ariel rose to fame by lip syncing her favorite songs on musical.ly, and now she has people jamming out to her very own music on the app. Her debut single "Aww" has surpassed 30 million views and her latest song "Perf" racked up 5 million in just a week. So yeah, it goes without saying that she's been releasing jam after jam.
"Aww" and "Perf" aren't the only fun and catchy tunes you'll here from her though. There's more where this one came from, and we caught up with the singer to catch up on this new musical journey of hers. She even spilled about other social media stars she looks up to, along with filling us in on the things guys do that makes her say "aww" or "ehh." Watch our Facebook Live interview with Baby Ariel below for all things music, social media and more.
In addition to spilling that stepping into the studio for the first time did take some adjusting, the singer also filled us in on what to expect with her upcoming music – and it is safe to say her songs will be just as catchy and irresistible as "Aww" is.
"It's going to be kind of like ["Aww"], where it is pop – but it does have a certain twist on it," she exclusively told J-14.
As for the vision behind the "Aww" music video, Baby Ariel basically just wanted to achieve cuteness overload. So naturally, they just decided to go with all things cute. Tiny food? Check. Attractive boys? Check. Fuzzy animals? Check. What more can you ask for, really?
She told us, "The song is talking about, 'Aww, you're so freaking cute.' But like, when you say, 'You're so freaking cute,' you could be talking about a puppy."
In addition to dishing all about "Aww," Baby Ariel also let us in on her social media and singing inspirations.
"I always used to watch Cameron Dallas. I looked up to him a lot because he started on Vine and then he started doing shows. Then, he released a song… modeling," she spilled. "Also I love Miranda Sings, and she makes me laugh."
Pretty good social media icons to look up to, if you ask us! We can't wait to see what else is in store for Baby Ariel. Until then, you can catch us listening to to her current releases on repeat.
