Meet Cody Simpson, Australia’s Answer To Justin Bieber

Jun 1st, 2010 // 30 Comments

If the success of Justin Bieber has proven anything, it’s that no singer is to young to be snatched up after breaking big on the Internet (see: Greyson Chance) and transformed into a singing sensation. Case in point: 13-year-old Australian Cody Simpson, whose sticky-sweet pop single “iYiYi” hit iTunes today, and features rapping by Flo Rida. Listen below.

Just for the record, Flo Rida, it’s a little creepy to rap the line, “I-y-yi cannot get enough of kissing you” right after Cody sings his own call-out at the beginning of the track.

But moving on, are we the only ones getting a bit of “One Time” deja vu here?

Granted, Bieber has a winning track record, and Simpson has to start somewhere. But it’s going to take hard work and a lot of originality for this Aussie to set himself apart from his Canadian counterpart—that is, if Bieber’s legion of fans will let him.

Earlier this afternoon, Cody Simpson’s Wikipedia entry had been altered to say that the singer is “a cheap knockoff of Justin Bieber. therefor [sic] a pre-pueberty [sic] failure.”

I-yi-yi.

  1. A “knock-off”, maybe, but “a pre-puberty failure” is something they both have in common.

Iyiyi is way better than One Time. I was light Justin Bieber’s biggest fan until I heard Cody Simpson and he won me over right away!!

  12. Yo creo que “Cody Simpson” es otro gran artista al igual que “Justin Bieber”. y que ninguno de los dos son fracasados. para mi son artistas jóvenes con mucho para descubrir y recién empezaron su carrera aún falta mucho para que estos talentos crezcan.

  13. Tengo solo 13 años y los dos me encantan!

  14. maggie

  27. GHD

    Wow I just adore her! She is gosh darn beautiful and a really good actor. I don’t think the show V is all that good, none the less I watch it anyway just so I can see Morena. And I don’t know if you’ve ever seen her do an interview but she is also rather funny and it all seems to come so natural for her. I personally never even heard of her before The V, now I’ll watch anything she’s on.

  28. tienes un blog excelente aqu铆! 驴Te gustar铆a hacer algunos puestos invitan a mi blog?

  29. Hi Taylor Cody Simpson is 14 year old like me
