Electronic producer Deacon and singer @iamLorenGray bring social media star power to the dance floor with “Love for the Summer”

DEACON and LOREN GRAY, “Love For The Summer”

Continuing with the examples set by performers such as Shawn Mendes and Troye Sivan, and more recently with Lil Nas X and Dixie D’Amelio, the power of social media crossover to pop music success is evident in the infectious “Love For The Summer” by Deacon and Loren Gray.  Neither are even 20 years old – Deacon is the L.A.-based 17 year old son of actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, and 18 year old Pennsylvanian Loren Gray is a Tik Tok and Instagram star who has also released several singles, including some features in dance music releases, and has appeared in videos by Taylor Swift, HRVY, and Kim Petras. “Love For The Summer” is only the second single for Deacon, and it’s an entertaining, rich production somewhat reminiscent of The Chainsmokers’ “Closer”, which allows Loren’s vocal to glide over some big beats and a warm melody.
