(December 15, 2020 – New York, NY) – With well over 100 million combined artist streams and over 1.4 million TikTok videos made of her single “Drugs”, Arista Recording artist UPSAHL unveils “Arizona”, a year-end bonus track for her sophomore EP Young Life Crisis.
Teeming with her signature confidence and unabashed self-awareness, “Arizona” is quintessential UPSAHL, complete with an irresistibly catchy hook and candid lyrical quips that will resonate universally with her fans.
Meanwhile, UPSAHL’s traction on TikTok has snowballed through the use of her fan-favorite single “Drugs”, with over 1,400,000 videos made using the track just in the first two weeks of December. Reaching #6 on the TikTok Viral Chart and #1 Sound on the TikTok Trends chart, “Drugs” was featured in clips posted by the likes of James Charles, Charly Jordan, Alex French, Jason Derulo, and more. “Drugs” was also added to Spotify’s Teen Party (3.8m followers) and Pop Rising (2m followers) playlists, as well as Viral Hits playlists across Spotify, Apple, and Amazon Music.
Expanding her influence, UPSAHL recently lent her pen to Madison Beer on her fiery new single “BOYSHIT”, which is featured on Spotify’s Teen Party (3.8m followers), Pop Rising (2m followers), and just hits (1.7m followers) playlists and received much critical acclaim. 1883 praised “BOYSHIT” as “a bop we can’t get out of our heads”. Earlier this year, UPSAHL undertook her first co-write on “Good in Bed” for Dua Lipa’s Grammy-nominated chart-topping blockbuster, Future Nostalgia, and has continued to write for heavy-hitting artists, such as Anne-Marie.
2020 has been a whirlwind year for UPSAHL, releasing her second EP Young Life Crisis to critical applause. Following the release, SPIN proclaimed that “UPSAHL is joining the ranks of kickass women in music”, and Billboard heralded the young star as “One to Watch”. In tandem with Young Life Crisis, UPSAHL released a reimagined track entitled “Wanna See Me Run”, an acoustic transformation of Lizzo’s viral interview with David Letterman on his NETFLIX series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. The song caught the attention of Lizzo herself, generating over 2 million views on Instagram. Listen to the track HERE.
Early in her career, UPSAHL released songs which gained much-deserved recognition throughout the Phoenix music scene. As a graduate of the Arizona School for the Arts, a performing arts middle/high school, UPSAHL continued to hone her craft, while being trained on piano, guitar and choir every day. UPSAHL went on to ignite a groundswell of fan adoration and tastemaker praise by way of numerous indie alternative gems.
“Can You Hear Me Now” achieved a palpable viral buzz followed by the widely praised single “Drugs”, which was featured on her debut Hindsight 20/20 EP and has been used in over 1,400,000 TikTok videos, is #6 on the TikTok Viral Chart and #1 Sound on the TikTok Trends Chart. “Drugs” led to a momentous year for the “up-and-coming indie-pop queen”—according to Alternative Press. 2019 saw UPSAHL take the stage at Lollapalooza and support acts including PVRIS, Joywave, BROODS, Max Frost, and Young the Giant. Additionally, “Smile For The Camera” hit Top 40 on Alternative Radio as it attracted glowing critical acclaim and YouTube claimed UPSAHL as their ‘Artist on the Rise’.
