Tayla Parx’s discography reads a bit like a who’s who in the music industry. She’s written and co-written songs for superstars including Chris Brown, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera, and more recently Khalid, Panic! At the Disco – along with the smash-hit ‘Thank You, Next’ for her friend Ariana Grande. The latter were all Top 10 singles, with Grande’s song peaking at no.1 in the US, and Parx also snagged a no.1 with the song ‘7 Rings’ together with Grande. She can also lay claim to the involvement in a bulk of tracks on Janelle Monáe’s Dirty Computer album in 2018.

In April 2019, after having churned out countless chart-topping hits for others, the time was finally nigh for Parx to release her first solo album ‘We Need to Talk, which swerves through a wide range of genres from pop and R&B, with appearances from Joey Badass, Cautious Clay and DUCKWRTH.

You may however have seen Tayla Parx on screen long before you heard any of her music. She started out as an actress – and quite successfully so – playing the role of Little Inez in the 2007 musical movie Hairspray, and also played roles in Gilmore Girls, Everybody Hates Chris and True Jackson. The transition from acting to music often proving a slippery slope, Parx has not only managed the feat with conviction and a certain panache, but excelled at it.

Gamers might also revel in the fact that she’s lent her voice to characters in the video games ‘The Sims Olympus’ and ‘The Walking Dead: The Final Season.’
