Amassing over 2 billion streams to date, the 24-year-old independent singer, songwriter, and producer Lauv resembles an auteur in his assemblage of electronic tones, airy beats, jazz-inspired guitars, and soulful vocalizations. After logging countless hours in his bedroom writing and producing, Lauv entered the Music Technology Program at NYU in 2012. Under the auspices that he’d “make music for other artists,” he passionately maintained a prolific output until penning “The Other” during 2014. “The Other” quietly took the internet by storm. Premiered on a friend’s blog as his first release under the name Lauv, the song has now generated 170 million-plus Spotify streams.
Relocating to Los Angeles, he co-wrote the Platinum-certified Top 5 smash “No Promises” by Cheat Codes and Demi Lovato as well as the Pitchfork-endorsed “Boys” for Charli XCX, among others. In the meantime, “I Like Me Better” became his second bona fide smash. It vaulted past the 650 million mark on Spotify, soaring to the Top 25 of the Global Chart and Top 5 on iTunes internationally. A mélange of plucky synth chords and a 90s-inspired drum break, the electrifying production snaps into a soulfully staccato refrain. “I Like Me Better” comprises just one phase of Lauv’s debut playlist, I met you when I was 18.
Released in September 2018, Lauv's “There’s No Way” features Grammy-nominated artist Julia Michaels and has amassed more than 100 million Spotify streams and 17 million video views.
Lauv's latest track, "i'm so tired..." is a collaboration with pop icon Troye Sivan. The song has more than 100 million Spotify streams and 40 million video views and has been consistently in the Global Top 50 since release on January 24th, 2019.
