With over 1 million subscribers on his channel and 17 million views on his videos, Austin Mahone has already amassed a wide fan base through social media. Though often compared to the Canadian pop sensation, Justin Bieber, it seems like Austin Mahone has more than meets the eye.

Cue “Secret”, the fourth track on the album that has a robot chant a la Daft Punk’s “Technologic” and brings back memories of the late 90’s boy bands like the Backstreet Boys. Austin Mahone’s mix of old school and modern jams could make him the next hit sensation.

Another track on the album is “Mmm Yeah”, the lead single released on 26 January 2014 that features rapper Pitbull. It has since garnered over 61 million views for its official music video on YouTube.

The album rounds off nicely with an acoustic ballad, “Shadow”. It seems to be a fan favourite already, with Mahonies swooning over it everywhere on social media.

All in all, this album is a well-rounded piece of work and we sure do look forward to future albums released by him.

The Secret is the second extended play (EP) by Austin Mahone released on 27 May 2014.
