Lauv is a 23 year old singer, songwriter, and producer. He has an EDM influenced pop music style, and this is shown in his breakout heartfelt single “I Like Me Better” released early 2017.

At the beginning of the song, Lauv sings, “to be young and in love in New York City”. The song was inspired by a relationship that started 2 months after Lauv moved to New York City for educational purposes.

The beat is uplifting and cheerful as Lauv sings, “I like me better when I’m with you,” in the chorus. The song explains the emotional sensation of feeling like a better person when with a loved one. The lyrics of the track are very relatable to the youth of today, and are very worth listening to.
