Just Stef initially teased the tune on TikTok this summer, setting the platform ablaze with over 3 million views and 377K “likes” thus far.
She continues to post up impressive numbers though. Her debut single “Miss U Miss Me” has generated 13 million-plus streams. Gaining traction worldwide, it peaked at #55 on Spotify Indonesia’s Weekly Top 200, #1 on the Indonesia Viral 50, #8 on the Philippines Viral 50, and #8 on the Singapore viral 50. She accompanied “Miss U Miss Me” with the Spanish version “Te Extraño Me Extrañas.”
In 2020, Just Stef was discovered by the former Global Head of Songwriter & Producer Relations at Spotify, Tiffany Kumar, who was building her Beat House production company. Tiffany started sending songs to Stef who like so many of today’s artists had already learned how to record herself. One of those songs was “Miss U Miss Me,” penned by hit songwriters Chelsea Lena and Kennedi Lykken (Dua Lipa, Kiana Ledé) and produced by KyleYouMadeThat (NLE Choppa, Coi Leray) and Boston & Pat (Bazzi).
After dominating TikTok, she’s primed for stardom this year. Make sure you don’t miss her in 2021… Watch the original "Miss U, Miss Me" video below:
Just Stef will tell you she’s “a very simple girl.” However, she’s being modest. She’s really a vocal dynamo who can belt in English and Spanish and posts hilarious viral sketches. In fact, the implications of her impact are a bit more complex than she gives herself credit for. She appeals to an audience of millions on social media, because—as a first-generation Argentinian-American who has moved around since she was a little kid—she’s also real and relatable. Born to Argentinian immigrants in the U.S., the family bounced around Southern California’s Inland Empire. Along the way, she fell in love with Latin music a la cumbia y cuarteto as well as Céline Dion, Christina Aguilera, and Demi Lovato. In between working from a young age, she casually sang in church, participated in choir, and performed karaoke. By 18-years-old, she had settled in Jacksonville, FL. At the time, she often sang on Instagram for fun before launching her TikTok. An “Alphabet Video” caught fire, catalyzing the explosion of her account. She would reenact Kevin Hart bits or perform Spanish comedy skits about her family. Along the way, she built an audience of 2.4 million followers on TikTok and generated 81 million “likes.” Eventually, she linked up with red hot producer KyleYouMadeThat (NLE Choppa, Coi Leray) and created her first original single “Miss U Miss Me.” It initially caught fire on TikTok, piling up over 5 million views in three weeks. Now, her unfiltered personality shines through a series of singles for The Heavy Group/Republic Records.
