Julia Michaels has "Issues" with platinum certification

Meredith Truax

Julia Michaels' debut single, "Issues," has gone platinum in just three months, with one million in sales and equivalent streams. 

According to her record company, it's also the best-selling song by a new artist released in 2017, and the highest on-demand audio streaming song by a new artist released this year. 

While Julia is considered a new artist, and "Issues" is her first hit under her own name, she's co-written eight other top-40 hits for the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.

Julia will be performing at the Radio Disney Awards on April 29.  She's up for Best New Artist, and joins a performance lineup that also includes Hailee Steinfeld, Noah Cyrus, Alessia Cara, Train and Jordan Fisher.
