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 500 million mark on Spotify, soaring to the Top 10 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.
His latest single “There’s No Way” features Grammy-nominated artist Julia Michaels and amassed more than 5 million Spotify streams and 2.5 million video views in just the first week.
