Grammy-nominated songwriter, singer, actress and businesswoman Tayla Parx is premiering the visual component to her critically acclaimed album Coping Mechanisms, which is out now on TaylaMade/Atlantic Records. Directed by Bobby Friedman and Roxana Baldovin, the full-length film focuses on finding the path back to joy as the world continues to change. Watch/share the film HERE.

“It brings me a tremendous amount of joy to share this film with the world,” says Parx. “I wanted to create a visual component to Coping Mechanisms to give fans a deeper understanding of the innerworkings behind this album while providing a bit of a time capsule into my emotions. Big shout out to Parx Studios as well as Bobby and Roxana who helped bring this film to life.”

In conjunction with today’s release, Parx celebrates the one-year anniversary of her hit single, “Dance Alone,” which debuted to widespread critical praise; Variety declared, “‘Dance Alone’ has perhaps the defining chorus of 2020.” The track has garnered over 7.3 million global steams and was featured on Michelle Obama’s #BlackGirlMagic playlist.

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. In 2019, Parx released her debut album We Need To Talk via Atlantic Records to widespread praise and was also included in Forbes’ “30 Under 30” music list.

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),” Dan and Shay’s “Glad You Exist” and Dua Lipa’s “It Ain’t Me.”

In addition, her Grammy Award-nominated catalog consists of songwriting contributions on HIAM’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.

“[‘Dance Alone’] speaks for a lot of us with this mid-tempo ’70s soul groove, which has perhaps the defining chorus of 2020.”—Variety
