CELEBRITY PLAYLIST: LAUV

The “I Like Me Better” singer on how he achieves mental clarity

Lauv’s fan base picked up steam when his debut track “I Like Me Better” became a Spotify smash and radio staple this year.

The 24-year-old San Francisco native, also known as Ari Leff, self-released his early tracks and subsequently watched them go viral. Now, the singer-songwriter (whose moniker is the Latvian word for Lion, a salute to his heritage) has a rising profile that includes a recent duet with Julia Michaels in “There’s No Way” and a co-writing credit for the Demi Lovato and Cheat Codes hit “No Promises.”

Lauv put together a playlist exclusively for Furthermore that’s perfect for a workout. When it comes to his own routine, he always tries to make time for exercise, if only for the mental clarity benefit. “Even when I’m on the road, I’ll do a lot of little makeshift workouts in my greenroom,” he explains. “Especially on days when I’m really in my head.” Here, the 10 tracks that help him reset his mindset.
