Imagine a pastel-hued realm where lines between gender and genre disappear, and expectations, constraints and rules float away. You can wear whatever you want to wear, and be whoever you want to be unapologetically. Welcome to the world of Tayla Parx. The three-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, singer, songwriter, and boundary breaker is creating a space for her listeners to come as they are. Tayla set about unlocking that world in 2017 with her TaylaMade mixtape. Up to that point, the Dallas native had made her mark from two opposites vantage points-behind-the-scenes in music and on-screen in television, films, and video games. As a songwriter, her discography spans hits for everyone from Alicia Keys, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, and Meghan Trainor to Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe, Nicki Minaj, Prince Royce & BTS. In addition to multi-platinum smashes such as Fifth Harmony's "BO$$", Chris Brown's "Anyway." & "Love Lies" by Khalid & Normani. As an actress, she appeared in Hairspray, True Jackson, VP as well as The Walking Dead and Sims video game franchises. Along the way, Vogue, NYLON, Highsnobiety, Billboard, and more shined a spotlight on her. The TaylaMade mixtape hinted at her potential, but it merely scratched the surface. That brings us to her major label debut project, the aptly titled WE NEED TO TALK [Tayla Made/Atlantic Records]. She paved the way for its arrival with the ethereal "Runaway" [feat. Khalid], which quickly clocked over 9 million Spotify streams within a few months. The follow-up single "Me vs. Us" twirls a colorful sonic kaleidoscope, splashing strains of pop and R&B across a quirky canvas of production. Straight out of the gate, it earned the praise of Complex and Refinery29, to name a few.At the same time, she delivers a provocative message on WE NEED TO TALK. "Slow Dancing" dives into gender fluidity, while "I Want You" hilariously explores the problem of falling for multiple people at once, asking, "Can you blame me for wanting you, and you, and you, and you too?"In the end, Tayla will be the topic of conversation for a long time to come with We Need To Talk.
