Single: Trevor Daniel – “Trouble” (Prod. by Jia Lih)
The Houston-Born Singer Shares a Bright New Single, the First Since His Homecoming EP, Which Boasts the Hit Single “Falling”
Critical Praise for Trevor Daniel:
Wielding an expressive and mournful tenor that brings out the emotion in his lovelorn lyrics, Trevor Daniel explores his relationships with inventive melody and plainspoken candor. Skating above shimmering synths, Trevor Daniel shares “Trouble,” his latest single. Speckled crisp rhythm guitar and room-enveloping splashes of vintage synths courtesy of Australian producer Jia Lih, “Trouble” finds the Internet Money Records signee willfully returning to a toxic relationship, letting his desires overwhelm his common sense. The ’80s-flavored “Trouble” is Trevor’s first new single since the October 2018 release of Homecoming, Trevor’s debut EP, which featured production from Taz Taylor and his Internet Money collective. The new single follows last week’s release of the romantic “Mess” video, and follows in the wake of the EP’s lead single and viral hit “Falling.”
Quickly rising in popularity on streaming services, “Falling” earned over 5 million streams on Spotify and inspired millions of views on user-generated content on Instagram, as detailed in a recent Complex feature. Premiered by Complex and featured in HYPEBEAST, “Falling” recently caught the ear of blackbear, who collaborated with Trevor on a remix that currently sits at #20 on Spotify’s United States Viral 50 chart.
A mature and infectious six-pack of yearning and emotionally open tracks, Trevor Daniel showcases his budding talent on Homesick EP, stretching syllables to increase the emotional impact of his dramatic and romantic lyrics, and using his expert sense of rhythm to grant his love songs a conversational quality. Throughout the tape, Trevor has an excellent co-pilot in Taz Taylor, who gifts the singer with expansive and lush backing tracks, offering ear-catching counter-melodies with flecks of guitar or chiming bells, filling out the low-end with cavernous swaths of bass synths, and spurring forward momentum with his expert command of hi-hats and 808s.
Fresh off a fast-selling tour with Yung Pinch, Trevor Daniel is the first signee to Internet Money Records, the new partnership between rising producer Taz Taylor and Alamo Records. A game-changing company in digital music, Taz Taylor started Internet Money as a beat-making company and collective through which producers could make beats and sell them a-la-carte to artists. As Internet Money grew, Taz Taylor became a well-respected songwriter and producer, signing a publishing deal with APG, shaping the sound of countless rising stars, producing four tracks on Lil Skies’ chart-topping Life of a Dark Rose, crafting the instrumental for the late XXXTentacion’s platinum-selling “Fuck Love” featuring Trippie Redd, and reaching #16 on the Billboard Hot 100 with Rich The Kid’s “Plug Walk.” Taz Taylor recently earned a GRAMMY®-nomination for his work on Drake’s top-selling Scorpion album.

Trevor Daniel Background:
Trevor Daniel began as a bedroom musician that now has since reached more than 20 million people. Based in Houston, the singer’s music is a gestalt of his influences. He is a fan of that 808’s Kanye-Drake-Cudi wave, Y2K Techno, and his city’s Chopped & Screwed trademark. With the voice, the melodic production, and heartfelt songwriting, Trevor thrives. The first act signed to Taz Taylor’s Internet Money Records broadcasts his life in sound and verse.
Taz Taylor/Internet Money Records:
A real boss moves in silence. For as loud as his influence resounds throughout hip-hop at large, multiplatinum producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Taz Taylor operates from behind-the-scenes. In that respect, he harks back to the genre’s game-changing production mavericks of the nineties and early 21st century. At the same time, he brings a fresh sense of melody to each tune often punctuated by live instrumentation. In 2018, his record label Internet Money signed a joint venture agreement with Alamo and Interscope. You may not recognize his face, but you’ll know his style…
