BREAKOUT POP GROUP WHY DON’T WE NAMED RADIO DISNEY’S ‘NBT’ FEATURED ARTIST
One of pop music’s biggest breakout stories of the year, Atlantic Records group Why Don’t We has now been named Radio Disney’s “NBT” (Next Big Thing) featured artist. Beginning this month, the group, which includes Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais, and Jack Avery, will be featured in a series of videos on Disney Channel, the Radio Disney app and social media platforms. The “NBT” program will showcase Why Don’t We’s journey as they prepare for their sold-out headlining North American tour and continue to release chart-topping music.
Why Don’t We’s single “Something Different” spent 10 weeks on the Radio Disney Top 30, while their current single “These Girls” – whose companion music video has already logged over 27 million view on YouTube in just 10 weeks – has been on the chart for six weeks. Their EP “Invitation” reached No. 1 on both the iTunes Overall Albums chart and Billboard’s Emerging Artist chart, as well as No. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers and Next Big Sound charts. The group has amassed over 105 million YouTube views with over 1 million subscribers and over 85 million audio streams.
The group visited Radio Disney Studios earlier this year and will go live on Radio Disney’s Instagram today at 12:00 p.m. PST/3:00p.m. EST to talk to fans and share the exciting news about being the “NBT.”
Why Don’t We joins an impressive roster of “NBT” alumni including Epic Records’ Camila Cabello, Island Records’ Shawn Mendes, Grammy-nominated Kelsea Ballerini, Epic Records’ Fifth Harmony, Def Jam Records’ Alessia Cara, Hollywood Records’ Jordan Fisher and Sofia Carson, Kemosabe/RCA Records’ Becky G and Buena Vista Records’ Temecula Road. The “NBT” program is sponsored by Capri Sun 100% Juice.
