Karmin's Brokenhearted The Most Added Song at Top 40 Nationwide

After igniting the Saturday Night Live stage earlier this month, Karmin’s single "Brokenhearted" has infiltrated Top 40 Radio becoming the most added song nationwide. The song, which People magazine calls, “An infectious pop confection..,” was co-written by Karmin’s Amy Heidmann and Nick Noonan. Karmin are slowly unveiling surprises over the next couple of months including TV performances, features splashed across the pages of Nylon, Elle, Teen Vogue, YRB and more leading up to the “swag pop” duos debut music release Hello out this Spring.

MTV says that, "Brokenhearted" kicks off with a fat, bouncy beat and soulfully sung verse,” while Teen Vogue raves, “Don’t let the title fool you—‘Brokenhearted’ is as upbeat as they come with Karmin’s signature fast-paced rhymes and a catchy hook” and Nylon calls it, “perky, irresistibly addictive, and way happier than the title suggests.” Billboard is already boasting that their debut release will be one to keep a close eye on as reigning supreme this year.

Karmin debuted their original music on Saturday Night Live’s iconic stage on February 11th performing "Brokenhearted" and "I Told You So" and instantly became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter that evening. Complex magazine said it best saying, “Karmin officially crossed over into the mainstream last night with a performance on Saturday Night Live..,” while AOL said “Karmin mixed bubblegum, rock and hip-hop, proving they're capable of more than just covering Chris Brown tunes. Rapping like Nicki Minaj and moving like Gwen Stefani, Heidemann wowed..,” and Idolator said “Offbeat pop duo Karmin punctuated their remarkable journey from “Look At Me Now” re-makers to mainstream stars…”

“A few months ago, we were sitting in our living room with a wooden box and a guitar just writing raw music, now here we are,” Amy marvels. Adds Nick: “I remember Amy’s dad once saying that the only CD he’d ever bought and run home from the store to listen to was by The Beatles. We want our music to have that effect on people. We want to shake things up.”

Karmin took the internet by storm last year after posting a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” on YouTube. The clip instantly went viral and became one of YouTube’s most viewed videos of 2011. The duo has since racked up almost 200 million views for their videos.

Hello is available in music stores nationwide and available for download on, only from Ivory Music & Video, the exclusive licensee of Sony Music in the Philippines.
