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 850 million streams, hit Top 10 at Top 40 radio and is certified multi-Platinum in 12 territories.
In early 2019, he collaborated with pop icon Troye Sivan on "i'm so tired…” that has since accumulated over 300 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 was “Drugs & The Internet” and proceeds from the latest track, "Sad Forever" will be donated to mental health organizations working to remove stigma.
