Today I have the opportunity to interview this amazing and talented young man. Making this interview is like a dream to me, because I’ve been following Johnny since 2014, so if you ask me, to the All the things that could go Wrong, this wasn’t one of them. So let’s get started.
Johnny, first of all I wanna say thank you for this opportunity to ask you a few questions and also for coming here to Mexico to present this new concept of the album.
Johnny: Thanks man, it’s my first time in Mexico City and it’s amazing. I’m excited.
Let’s go back in time, like a couple of years ago, and remember that first video that you uploaded in your YouTube channel with your sister’s help, Mistletoe by Justin Bieber, ¿why you choose that song?
Honestly, I don’t know. I didn’t choose it. It was there, but I think that was probably just like her favorite song at the time. It was around Christmas time, so I wanted to do a little Christmas cover. We like it to like our friends and family and stuff, like my grandparents and I don’t know, it was just so like, it was just natural.
I think that was like Sunday night. And yeah, like, ¿why not? Like, let’s make a cover.
In 2009, Mistletoe was the first cover that Johnny uploaded to the internet, but he jumps to public eye in 2014 with the Shawn Mendez cover “Stitches, at that moment he started to make a movement on the internet, because it was like the moment of YouTube.
Evolution on the covers produced
Since the first day that you sang mistletoe, stitches and All the covers that you make, ¿how was your evolution?, not only vocal, but being a famous teenager.
Oh, God. I think more than anything, I’ve just grown up a lot.
There’s are a lot Of parts, like development that we’re, like, stalled or like slowed because I just everything that was going on, like, I didn’t I wasn’t, I like, like socially, it was really weird.I’ve always kind of like, I’ve always known what I wanted, but I’ve never really known how to get there. And then I’ve just learned to learn over the years, but in that process, I’ve kind of forgotten how to be like a person for some time.
¿It was hard the evolution in your teenage time?
Yeah, for sure.
Like I go in a kind of regular high school, but before that there were many years where, I like I was in super weird schools or like I wasn’t in school much. I was just like working all the time. So a bit of a weird childhood, but like, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
¿Do you think that you missed all that, all the days when you was working and not playing?
Yeah. There’s definitely some Stuff that I missed, but like at the end of the day, like, ¿ I’d rather be doing this or what? I’d rather like going to university and work a minimum wage job, ¿right? Not to sound it’s like an ass, but Yeah, like I would give up Anything in the world to be doing what I’m doing now, and I had to give up a lot of stuff, but like, it was all worth it.
¿Have you already tried the original Mexican food?
I haven’t, because we got here yesterday. I got a Burger for dinner, But no, I haven’t had time to really explore. We just got a pollo asado, So hopefully I can get like a little bit of a taste, but I really Want to like get into it and get some, like, real, some delicacies.
I hope that you will fall in love with the original Mexican food, I really hope.
About New Album
Johnny how do you feel now that your new album it’s online everywhere because you’ve been working on this album since 2021. And one thing that I actually like so much it’s that you talk about subjects like anxiety, pressure on social media and overthinking, because everyone always has that feeling, especially in the middle of the night.
Exactly. Well, I don’t Know, I think it’s just what I’m Feeling at the time, Like I lie in bed, awake every night, I’m sleeping issues most of the time, So I’m awake for a couple hours after I put my phone down. And I just think about everything that’s, you know, that’s where I come up with, like, song concepts and melodies and stuff and, you know, that’s just my life. That’s what I’m actually doing. And I’m not going to be untruthful in my music, I can make a whole album of party songs, you know, like I party sometimes, like, you know, and that would still be truthful. But I think for my debut album, I just wanted to I just wanted to reintroduce myself and let people know who I really am, because I’ve been on social media for so long that a lot of people have this idea of me, like, Oh, like, I’ll get to Tik Tok, I’ll Be like, “Oh, I haven’t seen This kid since he was like 13”, but I’m not there anymore and I’m a very different person. So this is like my Reintroduction to the World.
I love hip hop music and R&B and all that kind of stuff in a lot of my music is a fusion of all of that. But when I make a pop song, I want to do it my way. And, you know, blood is supposed to be like a fun summer song and something that you can like, like bump in the car with your friends and or like, really anyway, like, play it when you’re sad or trying to cheer yourself up in the car. If you’re out, if you’re breathing, if you’re at a club like I don’t care. Like, do what you want with it. It’s very versatile. It’s just good vibes.
Track My Little Pony
All the fans we remember hear you in that color for song in the movie, The new Generation of My Little Pony, ¿we can see you one day acting in a series or a movie or TV show? ¿Will you like it?
I don’t mind acting. I kind of want to stick to music for right now unless like the perfect role comes up because acting is cool At the end of the day, like music is my passion. I would much rather spend like 8 hours in a session than 8 hours on set. It’s just what I prefer. So I don’t mind acting and stuff like that. Like I would love to if there was like a really great role and it would help the music.
