I’m one of those girls who spend far too much time on YouTube. So much that I feel like I know every major YouTube star far too well! Now you might see this as a problem, but I have no regrets when YouTube allows us to meet amazing artists such as Karmin before anyone else does!
Who is Karmin you ask? There is a 99.9% chance you have come across their chart topping single Brokenhearted (watch the video here) – a delicious combination of dance and pop at its finest.
However, even though this track may have been the first you’ve heard of Karmin, they’ve actually been around a while. The duo first appeared on YouTube in August 2010 and since then have had over 219 million hits!
Made up of Amy Heidemann (vocals) and Nick (Louis) Noonan (all-rounder) – these two YouTube sensations got together at Berklee’s College of Music and to make it even sweeter – they’re engaged! So cute!
Amy is not only a talented singer, but a talented rapper! When the duo asked their fans whether they wanted either rapping or singing on the EP it was surprising to see that the response was very 50/50. You might not be a ‘rap’ fan but Karmin have the talent to take it to a new level! (And make it listenable!)
Taking on numerous different genres the two quickly built a cult following on YouTube performing covers like Chris Brown’s Look at me Now, Super Bass by Nicky Minaj and Adele’s Someone Like You. Check these out below – they are differently worth a watch!

Pretty awesome huh?
It’s no surprise the pair got picked up by famous music producer L.A. Reid (the same man who signed Justin Bieber) and signed to Empire Records in June of last year.
Check out Karmin’s new EP Hello here – it’s available on iTunes to purchase now.
And to think it all started on YouTube!
