“genre-blending” – BILLBOARD
2020 will be the year of contradash. The 22-year-old LA-based singer-songwriter-rapper will release new music through Interscope Records over the course of the summer, beginning with today’s single “white lie.”
Produced by Russ Chell (Juice WRLD, Lil Nas X), "white lie" is an undeniably catchy track about deception and toxic relationships; it may just be the song of the summer for anyone waiting for the Zoomer emo-rap-pop revival.

“I told Russ Chell I needed a ‘Since You Been Gone’ type beat and he whipped up the craziest lead melody, and I just screamed my face off, it was so fun,” says contradash.
contradash’s most recent single “blocked” landed at No. 12 on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist the week of its release. Contradash also has made early fans of PAPER, Lyrical Lemonade, and Pigeons & Planes, who named him one of their Best New Artists of the Month for February 2020 ("With only two singles released to date, contradash has already established a clear sound and style. Slurring together melodies with earworm songwriting to match, he takes from genuine emotion when it comes to crafting song"). Contradash’s name was inspired by, and is a play on, Night Lovell’s song “Contraband.”
