Between his books and exams Mike has managed to release his new single Cooler Than Me. 1.5M downloads to date and reaching No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot100 and No.4 on USA TODAY’s top 40 airplay chart, not bad for this 22 year old singer songwriter and producer from Michigan.
This track is a mix of electro and pop with an easy listening feel hitting the right chords with his young fan following. The lyrics are catchy and tend to linger in your brain demonstrating his clever capacity as a song writer.
As Mike himself says: The song was inspired by a girl I went to Duke with, but she doesn’t deserve any notoriety… ehm not so flattering but that’s OK Mike maybe he was given the flick?
