As ‘discovered’ Justin Bieber-style on YouTube, Pacific Island singing sensation Pia Mia has signed with Universal’s Interscope Records, who’ll primp a re-release of the R&B teen’s first EP, ‘The Gift’, on 25 Feb.

Joie Manda, Interscope’s Urban President, says: “When I met Pia and heard her sing I was floored. Artists of her magnitude come along very rarely. We are truly excited to help her become a global superstar”.

Whilst Pia says: “I want to show everyone that people from small places can achieve their dreams no matter how big they are”.

Aww. In the meantime, hear the 2013 edition of ‘The Gift’, which features Mia’s self-written viral hit ‘Red Love’, and her spin on Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’, here:
