Lyn originally released a cover of “When She Loved Me” on her TikTok earlier this year, which has over 13 million views and 2 million likes to date and resulted in over 420 thousand video creates using the sound from her video—watch the original TikTok HERE. Sarah McLachlan’s original song is famously featured in the Toy Story 2 soundtrack and won a GRAMMY Award for “Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.” It was also nominated for “Best Original Song” at Golden Globes and Academy Awards.
Of her cover, Lyn says, “I covered this song on TikTok about a year ago, and it blew up like crazy. I think over 400k videos were posted with my cover, and a ton of my followers were asking for me to put it on streaming platforms, so I did! It’s such a beautiful song and so pretty with the ukulele, and after a year it’s still just as pretty.”
Lyn recently released a cover of Billie Eilish’s “Your Power,” which resulted in a co-sign from the artist herself, who commented on the video: “this is so beautiful.” Watch the video HERE. Jungkook from BTS also recently added Lyn’s debut single “Producer Man” to his “Favorite Tracks” playlist on Spotify—see HERE.
“When She Loved Me” sets the stage for more new music to come from the 18-year-old singer and songwriter this summer. The cover follows her latest single “Itsy Bitsy” released earlier this year—watch the official video HERE. The song, a spin on the classic children’s nursery rhyme “Itsy Bitsy Spider,” illustrates Lyn’s rapid progression as a songwriter and artist. E! Online hailed it as “an exciting alt-pop release from a very promising new talent,” and Refinery29 praised it saying, “a classic nursery rhyme gets a haunting Gen-Z makeover.”
Lyn Lapid has affirmed herself as a star on the rise for 2021. “Producer Man” emerged as “the most-viewed unreleased demo on a TikTok video in 2020.” The song morphed from a viral TikTok clip into a phenomenon, as the original demo eclipsed over 70 million views and 8 million likes on the app. To date, the official release—produced by Dan Nigro [Olivia Rodrigo, Conan Gray, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lewis Capaldi, Sky Ferreira, Empress Of]—has racked up over 40 million global streams and 6 million YouTube views on the music video. Attracting widespread tastemaker praise, Rolling Stone claimed, “The fully produced version evokes early Nineties coffee-house soul gussied up with modern drum programming and ghostly electronic harmonies,” while Idolator rightfully predicted it “is certain to make big waves.”
