“Nobody Love,” the first single from Unbreakable Smile, is being played by more than 180 Pop radio stations. It’s in the Top 20 of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart and has more than 10 million streams. The official video for “Nobody Love,” which can be seen HERE, has more than two million views. Kelly, who is currently the VEVO Lift artist, co-wrote the song with Rickard Göransson (Ariana Grande, Enrique Iglesias, Jessie J) and the album’s executive producer, Max Martin.

Born and raised in Temecula, California, Kelly got her start by making songs in her bedroom and posting them online. She first rose to attention when her cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You,” went viral, racking up over 22 million views. Over the past year and a half, Kelly has sold out shows in several major cities (including The Troubadour and The Roxy in Los Angeles, the Bowery Ballroom and Gramercy Theatre in New York City and Bush Hall in London), headlined a sold-out, nine-city U.S. run and supported Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith on tour.
