Here today, pop charts tomorrow.
Singer Ryan Beatty gained a huge YouTube following through his covers of songs by artists ranging from Michael Buble to Gavin Degraw, but when he released his debut single Every Little Thing last November, it reached No. 56 on the pop charts in just 24 hours. The teeanger just released his debut EP Because of You last month and now has even bigger plans on his mind. Ryan spoke with Hollywire's own Chelsea Briggs at VH1's Do Something Awards to talk about the inspiration behind the EP and his dream collaboration.
Ryan said the success of his debut single was "mindblowing" and it's that very support which was the inspiration behind his EP. "The EP was dedicated to all my supporters and everyone who got me where I am today," said Ryan. "All of these songs that I wrote or co-wrote in that process, I thought about them while I was doing that."
Now that he's got a debut EP under his belt, he's looking at bigger plans for the future like a dream collaboration with John Mayer. Is he able to grow a beard like John though? "I can grow little peach fuzz, but the way I shave it off, I can just put milk on it and the cats will lick it off," he said.
