Yesterday, I had the opportunity to chat with Conor Maynard, the recent winner of MTV’s Brand New For 2012 Award. The UK teen sensation has taken the music industry by storm, first getting recognized for his amazing covers on YouTube. Ne-Yo came across his videos and said he wanted to work with him and before he knew, Connor achieved ‘Record of the Week’ on BBC’s Radio 1 with his addictive hit, “Can’t Say No“. I love this track and the accompanying video has over 2.3 million views already!
The Maynard fans don’t have Bieber Fever… they’re just plain Mayniacs… and proud of it. In the interview, we chat a bit about them, whether or not he has a girlfriend, what it was like working with Pharrell Williams and Ne-Yo, and what he thinks about gay marriage.
He was great to talk to and I’m certain the new album he’s working on will be well worth the wait. Check out my chat with Conor Maynard below!
