DOUBLE TROUBLE! Lauv joins forces with Conan Gray for a new track, ‘Fake’!
PLATINUM-certified independent singer-songwriter, producer, and pop visionary Lauv has joined forces with rising global pop singer Conan Gray.
‘Fake’ marks Conan Gray’s first collaboration with another artist and what better way to do it with the ‘I Like Me Better’ singer. Note that the single also covers Apple Music’s New Music Daily playlist and comes with a music video directed by Jason Lester. Here, whilst being around increasingly outrageous pop star environments, you’ll see the duo struggle to stay authentically themselves.
Check the MV below!
Lauv has come a long way in his career. From the release of his first EP ‘Lost in the Light’ in 2015 to his compilation album ‘I Met You When I Was 18’ The Playlist in 2018, he has captured people’s hearts through the wonderful music he independently writes and produces.
Two years since the release of his collection of songs, Lauv surprised everyone in March when he released his debut album ~how i’m feeling~. It even placed Top 20 in 10 territories including #9 in UK and #5 in Australia, with over 2 billion streams to date.

Conan Gray is a writer, performer, musician, and artist who started gaining popularity on social media. He engaged with his listeners by uploading content on his Youtube channel and other accounts by sharing everything from drawings, photographs, and personal moments.
He honed his craft through this journey, sharing the process of music exploration with his viewers too. He filmed, edited, and uploaded every video on his own, beginning at the age of 12. As his fanbase grew so did his fearlessness in the content and his songs.
True enough, all his hard work paid off in 2020 with the release of his debut album ‘Kid Krow’ which claimed the “biggest new artist debut of 2020” and #1 Pop album title upon its release. And oh! Taylor Swift and Sir Elton John gave reviews about Conan too! Saying, “Conan is the only person in the American Spotify Top 50 to actually write the song without anybody else” and “Conan you inspire me.”

Conan was also named MTV Push Artist, Apple Up Next Artist, VEVO DSCVR, and YouTube Artist On The Rise. He also sold out all of his US & European tour dates and made his TV debut with Seth Meyers on Late Night.
ON THEIR COLLAB
With their first collaboration ‘Fake’ now out on music platforms, Lauv and Conan had this to share about their track.
“We wrote Fake the first time I met Conan and it’s one of my fav songs ever. I hope you love it,” Lauv said.
“Lauv and I wrote Fake while we were just hanging and ranting about those two faced people everybody knows. Those people who say one thing and do the other, people who constantly talk trash about their own friends. We wanted to make something fun you can scream in the car to, a song to flip a bird at those types of people,” Conan added.
