The world could use more straight shooters. You won’t ever have to wonder about what LP is thinking. She’ll gladly tell you.
In fact, the singer-songwriter lays all of her cards on the table every time she makes a record. No filter, no censorship, and no bullshit. The artist’s latest full-length released late 2018—the aptly titled Heart To Mouth —stands out as her most direct statement yet, launching various hits around the world, the most recent, Girls Go Wild crowned the most played song at radio in Italy in 2019.
She started to pave the way for that highway on 2017’s Lost On You. The title track “Lost On You,” has eclipsed well over 500 million streams and went platinum in Russia, Poland, Greece, Switzerland, Italy, France, and more and recently went Diamond in Mexico. She’s been hailed by Billboard, Paper, Out Magazine, V Magazine, Interview, British Vogue, recently claiming the cover of Elle Mag Mexico, on top of show-stopping performances everywhere from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Late Late Show with James Corden to Conan and Jools Holland, she graced the stage at Coachella, Osheaga, Outside Lands, and many others. 2020 will bring new music from LP and global touring throughout the year.
Three months into the COVID-19 pandemic, Tai Verdes was an essential worker with a 9-to-5 job at an LA Verizon Wireless store. Now he has one of the biggest viral hits in the US, hailed by The New York Times as one of the "Best Songs of 2020."
After posting a series of TikTok videos, Tai's breakout single "Stuck In The Middle" took flight hitting #1 on Spotify's US viral chart (and 22 International Charts) and has since amassed more than 80 million streams and over 2.6 million TikTok creations, which have been viewed over 3 billion times since the songs release in late May 2020.
Tai's newest single "A-O-K" is on track to follow the same path, having notched more than 40 million views of the teaser and nearly 100,000 pre-saves before the feel good anthem's release earlier this month. The 25-year-old may have won the TikTok lottery, but he's playing the long game. And he's playing for keeps.
"I'm gonna be a problem," says the 6'7 singer with a smile, who carries himself with as much charisma as stature. "I love everything that's happening. But this is not a one song thing, this is a 10-album thing." Tai's debut album TV is available everywhere May 20.
