Michael Buble is perhaps best known for his vocals, but now he jokingly says he could drop his singing career for TikTok … after newfound success on the app.
The Canadian singer joined “TMZ Live” and talked about the work on his upcoming 11th studio album and … a possible TikTok career!
Michael has had worldwide success since dropping his debut, self-titled album in ’03. In January, he dropped his single “I’ll Never Not Love You” … which is a sequel to his 2009 hit “Haven’t Met You Yet”.
So far, he has sold 75 million albums, but he believes his latest “Higher” is his best yet. Although the album is scheduled for Friday, Michael is very excited about another hobby that he apparently masters from one day to the next – TikTok.
He tells us he loves interacting with fans on the app, but it’s more important for him to try to get more followers than his wife … only partially for fun. Back in September, he got an impressive 31.5 million views on his first video after his wife convinced him to join.
Bublé has gained 1.7 million followers and 14.7 million likes … but insists that his wife still wins the competition. Fortunately, he knows a lot about winning … with 11 Grammy nominations and 4 victories since ’08.
As for “Higher”, Michael says he got help from some famous friends … inclusive Paul McCartney, who gave his blessings for him to cover his song – “My Valentine.” Paul ended up working on the entire album and being accredited as a producer.
MB says Paul came to play and he “simply has the ability to take the good and make it great.”
“Higher” will be available on March 25 … tune in to “TMZ Live” for the full interview.
