Mike G & Leyla Blue Are Here For Me and You

The California producer maintains his signature form while pushing boundaries.

Mike G & Leyla Blue join forces on a pop song about Me And You — and showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Fusing pop influences with genre-bending beats, this partnership sets a new tone for Mike G as he explores the different realms of music, crafting a track that maintains his signature form while pushing creative boundaries. “I wanted to put together a killer pop record, but in my own style and with some edge to it,” he says. “I wrote Me And You before I released my first record, but then found it challenging to find a bigger artist to consider it. When it comes to working with pop artists, there’s no denying that I am extraordinarily picky.”

Mike G’s persistence led him to discover Leyla Blue, whose exceptional talent and unique artistic vision resonated deeply with him. “One of my boys that does management for me linked me with Leyla and her team, suggesting her for the record, and I was blown away when I heard her music.” Blue’s remarkable ability to craft compelling music seamlessly blending songwriting prowess with contemporary appeal solidified her as the perfect collaborator for Me And You.

“She’s completely in her own lane with her approach, and she’s one of the few artists I’ve heard that can write music that’s amazing from both a songwriting standpoint and a TikTok one, which is quite the skill to have in 2024,” he remarked. Recorded at Trend Def Studios and mixed and mastered by Mike himself, Me And You showcases the seamless synergy between two talented artists, leaving a lasting impression on listeners worldwide.
