After incessant demand from fans, Lauv and LANY finally dropped their much-awaited collaboration single “Mean It.”
Aside from their vocals, the mid-tempo pop song proves both of them are really good at making every listener connect with the lyrics and jam with the song’s dreamy vibe.
The two announced on their social media accounts that their song is officially available for streaming.
“LAUV X LANY WAS A FANTASY FOR A LONG TIME BUT NOW ITS REAL I LOVE THIS SONG AND I LOVE U GUYS,” Lauv said, tagging LANY.
Meanwhile, LANY said:
“[T]his couldn’t be more pure 100% lauv 100% lany “mean it” on the internet everywhere x.”
Lauv and LANY’s vocalist Paul Klein advises everyone not to mess with somebody’s heart if they don’t, of course, mean it.
“Don’t kiss me right now / Don’t tell me that you need me / Don’t show up at my house / All caught up in your feelings,” the catchy chorus goes.
“Baby, don’t run me ’round and ’round / Don’t kiss me, no, don’t kiss me right now / On your lips just leave it /If you don’t mean it.”
Lauv x LANY collab history
The two artists have the same fan-base since they have similar genre and music style, which nowadays have a huge following. Therefore, fans thought it would be great if the two collaborates.
One simple tweet from Lauv earlier this year sparked the idea of their fans and this built a huge hype for his collaboration with LANY.
In his tweet, Lauv openly expressed his appreciation to LANY’s music.
“Lany really does sound like falling in love,” he said.
Later on, LANY responded, “This flew lol.”
Afterwards, the “I Like Me Better” singer invited him to make a song together.
The interaction stopped there. But, no one knew they were sending DMs to each other as they confirmed their collaboration a month later.
“Yo @pauljasonklein should i bring billy to the studio 2day,” Lauv tweeted, hinting he would see LANY to create some music.
