Tayla Parx’s single, “Runaway,” featuring Khalid, is now available on all digital streaming platforms. Check it out here! A sweet R&B duet, the track finds Tayla Parx stepping out as a solo artist after penning some of today’s biggest hits for top artists including Nicki Minaj, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey and J-Lo, just to name a few. Recently signed to Atlantic Records, Tayla Parx is currently preparing for her debut full-length project, set to release later this year.
A three-time Grammy nominated artist, Tayla Parx first earned recognition at 13 years old for her role as Little Inez in the 2007 movie remake of the musical, Hairspray. With a thriving acting and singing career at an early age, the now 24-year-old artist has grown into one of the most sought after songwriters. Her long list of credits include Fifth Harmony, Meghan Trainor, Majid Jordan, The Internet and Chloe x Halle. Last year, Tayla released her first solo project, TaylaMade, which was “a promising introduction to the young studio wunderkind’s dulcet voice and keen hook-writing skills. She sounded comfortable inhabiting that nebulous space between genres, from the classic house riffs of ‘Cheap Liquor’ and ‘South Beach’ to the more straightlaced R&B of ‘Selective Memories’ or ‘Act Right.’ (Vogue) Her single, “Mama Ain’t Raise No Bitch,” and the video for it, showed off her vivacious personality and commanding presence. She’s been featured on Vogue numerous times, as well as on Billboard, VFILES and Highsnobiety, where she recently was featured on their Asics campaign. After returning from a successful week at SXSW, which included a performance for Austin City Limits Liveshowcase, Tayla is gearing up to release more new music.
