“Rich,” the new song from Grammy-nominated songwriter, singer, actress, and businesswoman Tayla Parx, debuts today on her own TaylaMade Records.; listen to the track HERE. “Rich” marks a creative rebirth for Parx, starting anew as she releases new music independently. Stay tuned for more to come soon, as she is currently working on a new project.
Of the song, Parx says, “Being rich could mean so many different things. This song is about holding on to the most valuable thing I own, and that’s my heart.”
Tayla Parx has established herself as a history-making behind-the-scenes force with a discography streamed over 1 billion times and counting. Winner of Billboard’s 2019 “Hitmaker” Award, Parx was the first female songwriter to have three simultaneous Top 10 songs—Ariana Grande’s “7 rings” and “thank u, next” and Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes”—in the Hot 100 since 2014. Last year, Parx released her album Coping Mechanisms via TaylaMade / Atlantic Records, the follow-up to her acclaimed 2019 debut album We Need To Talk.
Parx notably penned a total of six tracks on Grande’s blockbuster album Positions, including “34+35” and “pov,” not to mention co-writing the double-platinum track “Love Lies” for Khalid and Normani, Anderson.Paak’s “Tints (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” and Dua Lipa’s “It Ain’t Me.” Most recently, Dan and Shay’s “Glad You Exist” peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart while For King & Country’s “Relate” debuted on the Hot Christian Songs chart, marking the first chart appearance for the group.
In addition, her Grammy Award-nominated catalog consists of songwriting contributions on Justin Bieber’s Justice (Triple Chucks Deluxe), HAIM’s Women In Music Pt. III, John Legend’s Bigger Love, Janelle Monáe’s Dirty Computer, Christina Aguilera’s “Like I Do (featuring GoldLink),” The Internet’s “Ego Death” and the film Hairspray. Earlier this year, Parx launched TaylaMade, Inc., a new umbrella company housing Parx’s ventures: Parx Publishing, Parx Studios, 3020 Management, and lifestyle brand Trailer Parx.
