"Life, careers, relationships - everything we do has ups and downs. This is a song about one of those roller coaster rides, and how I learned to love the rush," says Baby Ariel. "This release is truly my own creation. I produced, directed and edited the lyric video aka part-1 of the music video. This is my baby, and I can't wait to share it with all of you."

"I Heart You" marks the long awaited follow-up to Baby Ariel's latest single, "Gucci On My Body," which debuted last summer - listen HERE.

"Aww" - which formally introduced the musical.ly star's signature pop sound to the world - proved an instant hit with TIMEnaming it among its "Songs You Need To Listen To This Week" while declaring it to be "a light and frothy pop bop with of-the-moment minimalist production, a sweet message and an especially sharp musical break." Both Ariel and her debut single continued to garner praise from Billboard, DuJour, Pop Dust, Blackbook, Idolator, Tiger Beat, Hollywood Life and more. The promising young talent kicked off 2018 with her second official release, "Perf" - listen HERE.

The one and only "Queen of Gen Z," Baby Ariel - a.k.a. Florida-based 18-year-old Ariel Martin - is by any estimation a wide-reaching worldwide phenomenon.

What's more, Baby Ariel has earned a seeming endless string of award nominations, spanning the iHeartRadio Music Awards, People's Choice Awards, Streamy Awards, Shorty Awards, and most recently, Telemundo's Premios Tu Mundo Awards. After co-headlining YouTube's 2016 DigiTour, Ariel has only expanded her influence with the launch of her Arielmoji sticker app, as well as her ever-evolving merchandise line available to supporters and fans.
