Relocating to Los Angeles, he co-wrote the Platinum-certified Top 5 smash “No Promises” by Cheat Codes & 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. 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.
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.
