Travie McCoy has released a new song and music video for ‘Loved Me Back To Life’
Fans will notice some familiar faces as the video features cameos from GaTa (from FXX’s Dave), Zach Holmes (Zackass), Toby Morse (H2O, Hazen Street), Wes Period, and Chad Tepper.
“It’s a song about finding your twin flame after years of failed relationship,” says Travie about ‘Loved Me Back To Life’. “You start to grow more and more cold and detached when you begin to think you may die alone. I’m a true believer that there is someone out there for EVERYONE but it took a very long time and lots of broken hearts to come to that realisation. This song is for my second half.”
The single follows ‘A Spoonful Of Cinnamon’, released in June, which was the introduction to the most honest, unpretentious, devastatingly powerful music of Travie’s career. He writes about his battles with bi-polar disorder and drug addiction, his heartbreak and devastation with the loss of loved ones, including his grandfather, and his emergence from a shell of a person into a full-fledged human ready to follow his dreams and his heart.

Growing up as a biracial kid in Geneva, NY, he grew up loving hardcore and punk rock, along with hip hop and R&B, and instead of choosing one lane, he created a genre-bending sound that changed what modern alternative and pop looked like. He formed Gym Class Heroes, a group that found a community in the alternative/punk space, but shot into the mainstream with hits like the 3x Platinum ‘Cupid’s Chokehold’ and ‘Stereo Hearts’. But as a solo artist, he hit new heights with songs like the 4x Platinum, ‘Billionaire ft. Bruno Mars’, as well as appearances on songs from Kelly Rowland, Tai Cruz and Olly Murs’ UK Top 5 single ‘Wrapped Up’.
