Rising Aussie pop star Betty Who released today her sophomore album, The Valley, featuring that gorgeous cover of Donna Lewis' 1996 hit, "I Love You Always Forever," and an ode to Britney Spears, called "Mama Say." To celebrate, the singer/songwriter appeared this morning on the Today Show, where she performed the LP's lead single, "Some Kinda Wonderful," complete with backup dancers and coordinating denim looks--obsessed.

"Clap ya hands if it feels good," Betty chants wildly in front of a bubblegum-pink screen, before erupting into the track's saccharine summer-friendly chorus: "Feeling tonight, some kinda wonderful," she sings above bouncy synth-driven prodction from Pop & Oak, who've previously worked with everyone from Nicki Minaj to Rihanna.
"I had been in the studio for four days with Pop & Oak and we wrote this on the fourth day, after doing a bunch of other completely different, totally amazing songs," Betty told the Independent, discussing the songwriting process for her single. "We sat on the third night after we had finished writing, talking for a few hours about what I really wanted for my career and who I wanted to be. When I came back in the next day this was the track they had made and I was literally ecstatic."
