Amassing over 2.5 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 over 200 million-plus Spotify streams and is now certified Gold in the US.
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 10 at Top 40 radio, Top 25 of the Global Chart and Top 5 on iTunes charts internationally. “I Like Me Better” comprises just one phase of Lauv’s playlist, I met you when I was 18.
In early 2019, he collaborated with pop icon Troye Sivan on "i'm so tired…” that has since accumulated over 250 million streams, is climbing top 40 radio charts globally and is scanned Gold in the US.
The next chapter in the ever evolving Lauv story comes with his upcoming debut album, ~how i'm feeling~. The first single off the album,“Drugs & The Internet” was released on April 25th and has been featured on 37 New Music Friday playlists including a #2 position on the US & UK playlists.
