Three months into the COVID-19 pandemic, singer-songwriter Tai Verdes was an essential worker with a nine-to-five job at a Verizon Wireless store. Now his songs continue to top the charts including “A-O-K” which peaked at #12 at Top 40 Pop radio, #34 on the Billboard Hot 100, and found Tai at #1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart. The song was off of his critically acclaimed debut album TV, which was released on May 20, 2021, and debuted at #3 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart and #5 on Spotify’s debut album chart.
Today, the chart-topping artist released his newest single “3 outfits” The catchy bop is the latest song to be released from his forthcoming sophomore album HDTV due out later this year. Tai took to socials back in January to start teasing the track, which immediately went viral, amassing millions of views across TikTok videos. The release comes alongside a cinematic video, directed by Dylan McGale, that brings the song’s cheeky lyrics to life, as Tai gets caught up in a headline-making romance. “My next album is about analyzing my own experience with love in a vulnerable way,” said Tai.
Tai shares on the single,
“The song ‘3 outfits’ was really the most transparent way to express how I was feeling throughout different times in my relationship. This song is my reflection of that, building to the grander theme of the album which is about the good and the bad parts of connecting with someone.”
The release of “3 outfits” adds to an already unstoppable year for the hitmaker, who was nominated for the Social Star Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on Tuesday. Tai can next be seen on his forthcoming 2022 HDTV Tour, which kicks off on Monday, March 28th.
