Lauv seems like a newcomer to most music fans as his track "I Like Me Better" is a breakout hit, but the truth is he’s been grinding for several years.
And now that he’s made it, he is not taking it for granted. He tells Billboard:
"I played in different bands and did a lot of self-booked touring and traveling around and my sister was driving us on tour and we’re playing for nobody and literally begging my friends that I went to high school with to buy tickets to our shows. This is something I’ve been dreaming about for so long, and so to finally be there on stage, I feel like I would a a******e if I can’t appreciate it."
"I Like Me Better" is out now.
