Tayla Parx


GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer, songwriter, and boundary breaker Tayla Parx reimagines genre, gender, feminism, popular music, and the very definition of an artist. From the onset of her career, she 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—which topped year-end lists by Associated Press, New York Times, and NPR and received a GRAMMY® nomination for “Album of the Year.” She accompanied Ariana for a standout performance on Ellen and teamed up with Paak and Kendrick Lamar to bring down the house at Saturday Night Live. Plus, she toured with Paak and Lizzo. Not to mention, the accomplished actress appeared in Hairspray and True Jackson, VP as well as The Walking Dead and Sims video game franchises. Along the way, Vogue, Paper, Forbes, NYLON, Billboard, Glamour, and more shined a spotlight on her. She launched her solo career with the acclaimed 2017 Tayla Made mixtape and one-off singles such as “Runaway” [feat. Khalid], which quickly clocked over 15.4 million Spotify streams within six months. However, everything set the stage for her 2019 full-length debut, WE NEED TO TALK [Tayla Made/Atlantic Records]. Driven by the single “I Want You” and ballad “Easy,” it not only smashes boundaries, but starts a very important conversation.
