The teenager dropped his debut single, Slide, on Friday, much to the delight of fans who were counting down the days after months of teasing.
He has been hard at work in the studio ever since, perfecting his craft in different countries.
Taking to Instagram upon the release of his track, Junior wrote to his 522k followers: ‘Slide is OUT NOW 👑 Finally the full track is yours and I couldn’t be more gassed! Thank you to everyone who’s been on this journey with me, shown so much love and support and made this all possible. Music video has also just dropped!

Ever the supportive parents, dad Pete commented: ‘Let’s go 🔥🔥🔥’, while mum Kate shared the track to her Story and encouraged everyone to download.
Later in the day, after witnessing the immediate success of Slide, Junior added that the support he’s received has been ‘crazy’, telling his followers: ‘Thank you for supporting new artists like me, without you none of this would be possible’.
The official music video for Slide is also accumulating thousands of views, and the comments section is filled with praise for the up-and-coming star, predicting the track as ‘the song of the summer.’
‘He’s the next Peter Andre, he’s his dad’s double. Well done Junior loving the song!!’, one fan wrote.

As for the hip-hop song’s lyrics, it seems Junior is singing about a romance, as he says: ‘When they ask me, “Who’s your girl?” I wanna say, “It’s you, my world”.’
‘I wanna love you in that new Chanel, I put my money on you, my girl,’ he continues.
Junior’s famous fam have been his biggest cheerleaders since his music career began last year, with Mysterious Girl hitmaker Pete saying after his son signed to a label that he was ‘so happy for him’ since the ‘passion and dedication Junior has put into this project is incredible.’
