After placing his coronary heart right into a ‘Love Letter,’ singer Payton Moormeier is again with an introspective and emotional ballad in regards to the ‘displaying mild’ on points he’s ‘at all times too scared to speak about.’
There’s a little bit of unhappiness amid the swag in Payton Moormeier‘s voice initially of his new track. “Rockin’ denim jackets, caught with these unhealthy habits,” he sings in “Habits.” Within the observe, Payton will get down within the nitty-gritty of his personal shortcomings. He acknowledges how he “can’t appear to take recommendation with out feeling attacked,” whereas additionally proudly owning as much as his insecurities about “all of the screws that don’t appear to screw in.” After the midway level, the track appears to vary perspective, as if the individual Payton was singing to within the first verse obtained an opportunity to answer.
” ‘Habits hits rather a lot totally different than ‘Love Letter,’ to me,” Payton tells HollywoodLife. “Each have been influenced by a woman however inform two totally different tales. It’s a private track to me displaying mild on some sh-t I’m at all times too scared to speak about.”

That’s what I like a lot about music and having the ability to create it.”
The arrogance to confront his personal “insecurities” may come from his years rising up on the Web. After discovering Metallica at age 7, Payton’s mom purchased him a guitar and planted the seeds for a wildly profitable music profession. After spending hours educating himself tips on how to play (by watching tutorial movies on YouTube), he determined to do what any nice fashionable music star does: publish covers on-line.

His 2018 TikTok of Halsey’s “With out Me” blew up, and as of this second, he presently has over 12 million followers, with over 600 million whole likes.
With such a faithful fanbase, it solely made sense to grow to be the largest factor in music, proper? “Love Letter” amassed over 1.5 million Spotify streams in a single week, and it presently has greater than four million on that streaming platform alone. If writing songs that hundreds of thousands of followers take heed to on loop is a foul “behavior,” it’s one which Payton’s not going to interrupt anytime quickly.
