With over four billion global streams to date, Lauren amassed an international fanbase via her relatable and authentic lyrics. Mirror includes singles like “That Part,” the quintessential love song of 2023, "Best Friend Breakup," that offers comfort for those with a certain type of heartbreak, “Fantasy,” which confronts toxic relationships and features her close friends and collaborators GAYLE and Em Beihold, and her breakout songs, RIAA-Certified platinum singles “Fingers Crossed,” and “Flowers.” Mirror also features the fan-favourite, “Bigger Person,” and the penultimate single, “Do It All Again,” that has a bevy of melodic and lyrical easter eggs for fans to find.
Lauren’s recent success has been underscored by performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 2022 MTV VMAs, Dick Clark’s New Year's Rockin’ Eve, and more. She was nominated as a Best New Artist and performed at the People’s Choice Awards, and Apple Music selected her as one of their “5 Breakthrough Artists Of 2022.”
