Think of the biggest hits you’ve been singing along to, and chances are you’ll know the artist name. But what about the songwriter? Well, it’s time you knew Tayla Parx‘s name – songwriting powerhouse and performer in her own right. Her track ‘I Want You’ hits high rotation on [V] this week for UNCO[V]ERED.
From the onset of her career, Tayla Parx has consistently shifted perspectives on stage as a performer, behind-the-scenes as a songwriter, and on-screen as an actress in television, films, and video games. Within one year, she became “the first female songwriter to have three simultaneous top 10 songs—Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” and “thank u, next” and Panic! At The Disco’s double-platinum “High Hopes”—in the Billboard Hot 100 since 2014.” She notably penned a total of six tracks on Grande’s blockbuster thank u, next. Not to mention, she co-wrote double-platinum “Love Lies” for Khalid and Normani, Anderson Paak’s “Tints” [feat. Kendrick Lamar], and four cuts on Janelle Monáe’s Dirty Computer.
All of this is setting the stage for her debut full length album, WE NEED TO TALK, due in 2019. Driven by ‘I Want You’, it’s set to not only smashes boundaries, but start a very important conversation.
UNCO[V]ERED premieres on Saturday at 12noon, after the Spotify Countdown. Channel 801, only on Foxtel.
