Most people nowadays might recognize Tayla Parx as one of Ariana Grande’s lucky seven best friends who received a diamond ring from Tiffany’s. As we all know, Ariana made a trap-inspired pop smash from Thank U, Next about the luxury gift-giving experience, called “7 Rings.” But did you know that Parx’s name is in the writing credits? (In fact, she applied her pen to five other Thank U, Next tracks, including its massive title track).
At just 25, Texan native Parx has impressively made a name for herself as a dancer, actor, and empathic hitmaker to the stars, including Rihanna, Usher, Mariah Carey, Fifth Harmony, Nicki Minaj, and many others. While in-between gigs, she launched her own label imprint, Tayla Made, and recorded songs that would become an emotionally resonant mixtape named after her label.
Today, following a few successful promo singles, including synth-pop ballad “Me vs. Us,” the cutesy electro of “Slow Dancing,” and charmingly romantic “I Want You,” audiences get a fuller picture of Tayla’s songwriting prowess in her official debut album We Need to Talk. But what emerges perhaps more clearly than ever is a singular voice. Tayla has bars and melodies for days, and a distinctive image (cartoon animations blending her real life lavender pixie cut, and affinity for Texan iconography and art director-friendly sportswear).
