Lauv, Conan Gray call out “Fake” friends on new song

The accompanying video captures them at a wacky photoshoot.

Lauv and Conan Gray have teamed up for a brand-new collaboration, “Fake.”

On the infectious pop track, which the duo co-wrote, they call out insincere, two-faced people. “Man, you’re so fucking fake, ah / You don’t mean a single thing you say, ah / If we’ve got a problem, say it to my face, ah,” they sing.

The song’s accompanying video follows the duo at a photoshoot that starts out normal enough, but becomes increasingly outrageous with the addition of wind machines, giant hotdogs and fireworks the set.


The pair shared their thoughts on “Fake” in a joint press release, with Lauv saying that “we wrote ‘Fake’ the first time I met Conan and it’s one of my fav songs ever. I hope you love it.”

“Lauv and I wrote ‘Fake’ while we were just hanging and ranting about those two-faced people everybody knows. Those people who say one thing and do the other, people who constantly talk trash about their own friends,” Gray added. “We wanted to make something fun you can scream in the car to, a song to flip a bird at those types of people.”

“Fake” is the latest in a slew of collaborations from Lauv, following songs with Ellie Goulding, BTS, LANY and more. Back in June, he released the EP Without You.
