Aside from having the blessings of Taylor Swift (who gave an Instagram shoutout), the rising poptress Phoebe Ryan meets the hit-centered pop formula: catchy, easy-to-follow melody that sways you away with her luring posh vocals. In her new music video “Chronic” Phoebe Ryan plays the ancient teenage-geek-metamorphosis-to-class-star role where she becomes a hot diva once she loses the glasses, makes out with the hot teacher, and stagedives. It is a cute video despite the hazy legal boundaries, but the song itself is a catch:

Originally from New Jersey, Phoebe Ryan started out by writing songs for other artists such as Oh Honey and Bea Miller before leaping on her solo artistry. She caught listeners in the cyber world with her R. Kelly’s “Ignition” and Miguel “Do You…” mashup, which eventually lelad to her debut EP Mine. She’s currently in the process of polishing her debut record.
