Tyler Lawrence makes serious house music while advocating for serious change. His newest single “The Heet” is out now, with 100% of proceeds from the track being donated to The NAACP. The single serves as a four-on-the-floor club ready hit, showcasing Tyler Lawrence's innate house music mastery. Yet the booming track goes deeper than just it's classic house music flare: it serves as Lawrence's encouragement to listeners to get out there, and let your voice be heard.
“Now more than ever, people are realizing and acknowledging the blatant racism in this country. The same racism that has been around for centuries and never truly went away. We are at a pivotal point in history that signals a chance for real change. Music has always been such a big part of my life and so much of my work and creativity is influenced and inspired by the contributions of the Black community to music. I want to influence real change in any way I can. I want to encourage everyone I know to show support at marches, donate, use their voices to spread awareness and have tough conversations with family who have been blinded by their own environments. This contribution is just another small way I can try to influence change.” – Tyler Lawrence
