Julia Michaels is the brains behind some of the biggest pop songs from the last few years. From Justin Bieber's "Sorry" to Selena Gomez's "Hand to Myself," it's no wonder that Michaels would take the inevitable plunge into a solo career.
In Billboard's series "How It Went Down," the songwriter turned singer breaks down the story from her hit single, "Issues."
"Issues" is about a fight that Michaels had with her boyfriend, a music producer who was actually working in the neighboring studio when she wrote the track. "He got mad at me over something really, really stupid," Michaels recalls. "So I wrote 'Issues' in about an hour."
