It had to happen - an American schoolgirl has released a song about Instant Messaging.

Twelve-year-old Brittney Cleary was 'discovered' while singing karaoke in New York. Her family swiftly up and moved to Nashville to further her career, resulting the release of 'I.M. Me', a pop ditty about Brittney's favourite pastime - chatting with friends online.

The lyrics feature typical IM-lingo, such as BBFN (bye-bye for now) and BRB (be right back). IM boffins will also be pleased to learn that the chorus is packed with even more of these acronyms - running along the lines of:

Hey, LOL, G2G
I gotta go, but watch for me 'cause
I'll be right back, BRB
So sign on, and IM me

The youngster, who fits in radio appearances, song recordings and weekly performances in Nashville around a hectic school and dance schedule, has a CD coming out next month.

"She's just a regular kid down in Nashville," her publicist claimed today, adding: "She's deciding now if she's going to have a career in country music or pop."

More information on starlet can be found on her Website. Die-hard Imers, or those who want to LOL, should click here for the full lyrics of the song. ®
