Today’s MD Discovery is none other than Tayla Parx, a multi-talented American singer, songwriter, and actress who is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
Artist Profile: Tayla Parx
Hailing from Dallas, Texas, Parx began her career at a young age, starring in numerous television shows and films. One of her roles includes Little Inez Stubbs in the 2007 film adaptation of Hairspray. She also played Shelly on True Jackson, VP, alongside actress Keke Palmer. However, her film discography arguably falls lower on her long list of skills and talents.
It’s Parx’s prowess as a songwriter and musician that truly sets her apart. What many people don’t know is that Tayla has had a hand in the music industry in more ways than one. She has penned hits for some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Ariana Grande‘s “Thank U, Next,” Janelle Monáe‘s “Make Me Feel,” and Khalid‘s “Love Lies,” showcasing her exceptional songwriting abilities across various genres. Other artists she has written for include powerhouse voices like Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. These collaborations have resulted in Parx’s name frequenting the Billboard charts in one way or another. Whether she is on camera, behind the scenes writing, or the voice of the track, the spotlight follows Tayla wherever she goes.
“Something In My Eye”
Tayla Parx has also pursued her solo music career, releasing albums like We Need to Talk in 2019 and Coping Mechanisms in 2020. Her music is characterized by its candid lyricism, blending elements of R&B, pop, and hip-hop. This is especially true in her latest track, “Something In My Eye.”
It comes as no surprise that this track is a hit. After writing for so many other artists, “Something In My Eye” is expertly crafted to mold around Parx’s killer vocals. Moreover, it incorporates all of the effortless genre crossovers that Tayla has come to be known for. The best part? The candid lyrics hold so much transparency while still sounding beautifully captivating. The track encourages encountering the full spectrum of human emotions. Even fame cannot shield icons like Tayla from the ocean of emotions that are part of the human condition. “Something In My Eye” translates this message into a standout track to close out this summer. The best way to appreciate the song is to simply listen to it yourself.
