For years, singer-songwriter Tayla Parx has been quietly toiling away in the background, earning herself distinctions that include three Grammy nominations and the title as the only woman with three successive top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 since Iggy Azalea back in 2014 with Ariana Grande's “7 Rings,” “Thank U, Next” and Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes."
She's a trusted member of Ariana Grande's songwriting team, responsible for six of the tracks on Grande's latest album and this year, Parx will take her rightful place in the spotlight with her debut album We Need To Talk, arriving on April 5th.
But before that gets here, Parx has gifted us with her latest "I Want You" single, a track dedicated to love and indecision, and not-so-oddly enough, the cut sounds like a bop plucked right out of Ariana Grande's catalog. It's a refreshing twist to have Parx on the forefront of the song this time around and signals toward a promising voice to keep on your radar. Listen now.
I'm still trying to break some habits
Sometimes I'm choosy or greedy or both
Don't we all come with some baggage?
And I know I got more than most
