Mimi Webb: Who Is The Gen Z Star Storming TikTok And The Charts?


Move aside, Taylor Swift, we might just have a new queen of the break-up song.

21-year-old Mimi Webb has stormed the charts, TikTok and our hearts with some rather amazing pop ballads about love and loss. 

She started out during lockdown and built an incredible following on TikTok, and the rest is history as she heads out on a European tour all of her own. Pretty impressive, right? 

Music Week have called her rise to success “the new blueprint for a modern pop breakthrough”. Here’s everything you need to know about her. 

Where is Mimi Webb from?

Originally, she’s from Canterbury in Kent, but moved to Brighton to live with a host family at 16 years old so she could attend the British Institute of Modern Music, to build on her guitar lessons, which she started at 12 years old.   

In an interview with People, she described her time at BIMM as “living, breathing music every single day.”  

How did Mimi Webb get famous?

In true Gen Z fashion, Mimi has cultivated most of her following through TikTok, amassing over 1.2 million followers. 

“TikTok has just been such an incredible app to use, especially in the lockdown. I remember thinking to myself, ‘How am I going to release music and get people to hear it and to know my face?'” she told People. “TikTok was just the perfect app for that.” She even included her family members in some of her videos.

She cites Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé and Amy Winehouse as her key influences, as well as wanting to be the next Adele. Aim high, girl.
