Ian Thomas Hoelen (born April 30, 1997 in Antwerp) is a Belgian singer-songwriter, musician, actor and recording artist from Flemish-Brabant. Ian Thomas was discovered in 2011 after the video for his Dutch cover version of Justin Bieber's "Baby" was posted by his parents on YouTube and became a viral sensation. The video came to the attention of Universal Music who subsequently signed a contract with him and the song was released as a single soon afterwards, reaching number 1 in the Belgian Ultratop chart.

“Cheers” is what one would expect from a young artist with such an impressive musical résumé. As it should be, Tyga gets to go first on this song. This to me has always been the ultimate marketing strategy for new artists trying to break out into a new market. Having an established artist with a high reputation in that market introduce the song gets the audience’s attention. Tyga does the introductory verse on this song and later Ian comes in to do his thing.
It's a very good song to unwind to after a long week. It is one of those set your troubles aside and enjoy the moment. Your problems will always be there but those moments you enjoy help to keep your mind clear and avoid insanity. Ian Thomas is definitely making his mark in a big way. Breaking through the international market is never easy but when you have the right track for the occasion, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. He is only 17 and with the kind of music he is delivering, the future is bright for him and everyone that loves good music.
