Why'd it take us this long to find out about Nina Nesbitt?

We don't know. But we sure are glad she gave us a call. Turns out, the girl from Ed Sheeran's "Drunk" music video has music videos of her own. Here are five other things we learned about the rad 19-year-old singer-songwriter from Scotland:

5: Sounds like music was sorta her destiny. "I always wanted to do something with music, but it's quite difficult to get into. I grew up in a small village, so there weren't many opportunities. I had plans to go to uni and do psychology or do something with fashion, but I ended up getting into music so I'm happy about that. I just kept going and it turned into a career."

4: Meeting Ed helped Nina turn her dreams into a reality. "My friend worked at a radio station and Ed was playing a secret gig and I went along. I chatted with him and asked if he had any advice for an upcoming singer-songwriter. He asked if I played the guitar and I said yes. I played him a song and he asked me on tour. That's kind of how it started. I'm really grateful."

3: Her musical inspiration comes from everywhere. "I never really had one [inpsiration]. It was just anything I liked," says Nina, who describes her music as "kind of singer-songwriter with a bit of an edge to it--it's not really one genre, it's pretty different."

2: Her debut album has already dropped in the UK, but her EP, Nina Nebsitt, is about to be released in the states on April 1. "The songs are all based on the experiences I've gone through," the 19-year-old told us. "The UK has known me for quite a few years, but in the U.S. I'm unknown so I wanted it to represent me and what I'm about."

1: Peroxide is her debut album. "It's crazy. I've been working on it since I was 15, and I'm 19 now so it feels like a long time coming. The reaction here in the UK has been pretty cool and it went to No. 1 in Scotland which is amazing--it's my home."
