Her single, "Young Blood", received over 150,000 views in less than a week.[8] She released a clip of a new song called "Enemy Fire".[9][when?]

"Enemy Fire" premiered on her own Vevo channel in April 2014. She worked with busbee, Jarrad Rogers, Mike Del Rio, and other noteworthy producers for her album. Her debut EP Young Blood was released on April 22, 2014,[10][11] with the lead single "Young Blood". Her EP peaked at No. 2 on the iTunes pop albums chart. Her EP had a debut peak on Billboard 200 at No. 64. She contributed her voice towards the audio book for Jennifer Donnelly's new book, Deep Blue: Songspell and a promotional song for it called "Open Your Eyes". Miller opened up for Demi Lovato on select cities for her Demi World Tour.[12]

In December 2014, she was picked as Elvis Duran's Artist of the Month and was featured on NBC's Today show hosted by Kathy Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, where she performed live her single "Young Blood".

In 2015, Miller was named Radio Disney's newest Next Big Thing artist. She appeared on Disney Channel many times with it and promoted her album with it as well. Her debut single "Young Blood" won the 2015 Radio Disney Music Awards for "Best Song to Rock Out to With Your BFF".[13]

Miller released her debut album, Not an Apology, on July 24, 2015, on Hollywood Records. The album peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200. On April 24, 2015, it was announced that Miller would accompany Debby Ryan and Natalie La Rose as opening acts for the summer leg of Fifth Harmony's The Reflection Tour, which began on July 15 in Louisville, Kentucky.[14] Miller finished the tour in late August.[citation needed] In July 2015, she was chosen by public vote to be the next Vevo Lift artist.

Miller's second full-length album and debut international album Aurora was released on February 23, 2018. It includes all the songs from the three previous extended plays (dubbed as "chapters"), along with five new tracks.[23] Miller had a hand in writing all but one of the songs on Aurora, on topics about "everything from existential boredom to slut shaming".[23] She performed "S.L.U.T.", the album's lead single, on MTV's TRL on February 12, 2018.[24] She conceived of the song as a way to reclaim the word's negative connotations as the positive acronym "sweet little unforgettable thing".[23]

She was featured on vocals on the 2018 NOTD single "I Wanna Know", released in March 2018.[25] The song went Gold in the US and is Platinum in several countries, including Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and Sweden.
