02 DECEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) – Singer-songwriter and 2019 EMA winner for Best Canadian Act, Johnny Orlando releases a cover of the highly-popular holiday track, “Mistletoe” by Justin Bieber on Universal Music Canada/Island Records, the country’s leading music company. Alongside its release on Friday, Orlando premiered an accompanying video for the song yesterday via a live chat with his fans on his YouTube channel, which had 43K fans tuning in from around the world. In just three days, the cover has generated over 64K (Spotify) streams, and in one single day the video has amassed over 180K views.

Last week on Orlando’s Instagram, he reiterated to fans that “This is the song that started it all for me 8 years ago… so I thought it was about time I released it properly. My version of #Mistletoe is out on all streaming platforms this Friday.” Orlando’s first cover of “Mistletoe” was posted to his YouTube account in 2011 and was one of the first videos that led to him being discovered.

During the live chat for the video premiere on Sunday, Orlando also announced a “12 Days of Giveaways” contest for one lucky fan that includes a combination of 12 physical and non-physical items ranging from a signed Johnny Orlando hoodie and vinyl, to exclusive behind-the-scenes “Mistletoe” footage and even a FaceTime call from Orlando himself. The contest runs December 14 through December 25. Stay tuned for full contest details and rules and regulations.

Last month, Orlando released a remix of his current single “All These Parties” with Canadian DJ and electronic dance music producer Felix Cartal, who has worked with the likes of Diplo, Swae Lee and Lights. The original version of “All These Parties” was produced by Hampus Lindvall (credits include Zara Larsson and Icona Pop) and is the follow up to Orlando’s smash hit, “Waste My Time” off his debut EP, Teenage Fever (March 2019). Since its release earlier this year, the EP has garnered over 82 million streams, and overall Orlando has garnered a staggering 305 million streams to-date.

Also last month, Orlando took home his first-ever MTV Europe Music Award (EMA) in Seville, Spain for Best Canadian Act. Fellow nominees for the fan-voted category included Shawn Mendes, Avril Lavigne, Carly Rae Jepsen and Alessia Cara. Previous recipients of the Best Canadian Act award include Shawn Mendes, who held the title most recently for three years in a row from 2016-2018, and Justin Bieber, who received the award for three consecutive years from 2013-2015.
