Earlier this month, YUNGBLUD released his latest single “Memories” ft. WILLOW [LISTEN HERE]. The track, which surpassed 1 million streams in it’s first week, was accompanied by an official music video directed by Colin Tilley [WATCH HERE]. Speaking on the song, YUNGBLUD revealed: “This song is about letting go of past traumas you may have experienced and voicing them to the world. There’s something freeing about turning painful memories from your past into lessons for your future – I want people to scream this song out and it be cathartic. It’s about coming together and shedding pain, turning it into positive energy and sharing the burden with each other.”
In March, YUNGBLUD released “The Funeral” alongside a music video featuring Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne [WATCH HERE}. “The Funeral” has accumulated more than 14.8 million combined video and global streams and continues to grow. He performed the song on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden [WATCH HERE].
