LAUV Releases NEW Video for “I Like Me Better”

Today, 23-year old independent singer/ songwriter/producer Lauv (Latvian for Lion) releases the music video to his wildly popular song “I Like Me Better,” – WATCH HERE (directed by Alex Di Marco). “I Like Me Better” hit over 80 million streams on Spotify, reached #73 on the US Consumption Chart and recently entered the Billboard Top 200. He is quietly becoming one of this year’s most important new artists.

This past month, Lauv released the Cheat Codes remix to “I Like Me Better” – CLICK HERE to listen, as well as a Spotify Session which includes “I Like Me Better” and Akon’s “Don’t Matter” – CLICK HERE to listen. When not penning his own music, Lauv’s recent songwriting cuts include “Boys” by Charli XCX and “No Promises” by Cheat Codes and Demi Lovato.

Lauv’s newest song follows the release of his debut single “The Other,” a song Lauv wrote while studying at NYU, which has amassed nearly 100 million streams on Spotify. The track also earned the titles of Today’s Top Hits and Global 100. CLICK HERE to watch the video to “The Other.”

Based in LA by way of NYC, Lauv said, “Before I started making music as Lauv, I’d lost that sense of who I really was for a while. It seems like a lot of people lose touch with that forever, and end up living a life that’s not really true to who they are. By being so honest in my songs, I want to encourage people to be okay with who they are and what they feel. More than anything else, that’s what drives me to create music in a massive way.”

Earlier this summer, Lauv embarked on his sold-out “late nights, deep talks” tour- his first headlining tour. He also performed at Summerfest in July, and will be performing at Billboard Hot 100 Festival on August 20th at Jones Beach in New York.
