Vine star Ruth B has just done something incredible.

Let us introduce you to Ruth B.

She's just signed to Columbia Records, which is the home of Beyonce, One Direction, Pharrell Williams and other megastars. 

But before she had a record deal, she was performing clips of popular songs on Vine. She updates her Vine almost daily and now has 735 posts, amassing a massive 367,646,300 loops (and counting).

The Vine star caused quite a stir earlier this year when she uploaded a video of her song "Lost Boy", a Peter Pan-themed piano ballad about bittersweet-nostalgia.  

That song caught the attention of her label. Now it will be included on her first EP The Intro which you can buy/stream from 27 November. The lyric video for the song is below.

In the meantime, head to her Vine channel to listen to snippets of all your favourite tracks. You've literally got hundreds to catch up on.

And that's how you get a record deal in 6 seconds. Simple.
