(New York, NY): Rising singer-songwriter vaultboy has released the 2nd remix of his explosively viral debut single, “everything sucks,” featuring BRIT-nominated Popstar, GRACEY. Named by Rolling Stone as the “King of Sad Songs”; this remix follows the original release of vaultboy’s “everything sucks” on May 21st, along with its Eric Nam remix on August 13th. Having only one official release under his belt at the time, “everything sucks” skyrocketed not only to the #1 spot on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, but also hit #1 on the Western music chart in China for two weeks straight, beating out Billie Eilish’s “Lost Cause.”
“Before I wrote “everything sucks”, I found GRACEY’s music online and was already a fan. After we released “everything sucks” and the idea of doing remixes for the song came along, I immediately thought about GRACEY. We connected on the idea and she quickly put a verse down that’s straight fire and feels so good. I’m glad we’re able to finally put this out and share it with the world.” – vaultboy
