gold-selling singer, songwriter, and producer BoyWithUke reveals a brand new single entitled “Sick Of U” with Oliver Tree via Mercury Records/Republic Records.
On the song and working with Oliver Tree, BoyWithUke said: “‘Sick Of U’ is about realizing that someone might not be good for you, and that getting them out of your life is the right thing to do. Working with Oliver was a lot of fun. He’s a really goofy, yet very professional person, and I admire the contrast of his personalities.”
BoyWithUke built anticipation for the track on social media prior to its arrival. He teased the song on TikTok with a series of posts, generating millions of views on videos of a bloody Oliver Tree in BoyWithUke’s signature mask and even getting his instantly recognizable hairstyle straightened. As for the song itself, the alternative pop disruptor breaks boundaries once again, dipping in and out of glitchy production punctuated by tightly threaded organic instrumentation. Meanwhile, he and Oliver Tree trade catchy lines worthy of the ultimate breakup text. Building towards an emotional sendoff, BoyWithUke reminds, “Life goes on and on.”
BoyWithUke continues racing towards a major mainstream breakthrough. His following has grown beyond 6 million on TikTok, 2.5 million on YouTube, and 2.2 million on Spotify. His full-length debut album, Serotonin Dreams, only fueled this explosion. Beyond tallying hundreds of millions of streams, The Honey Pop hailed it as “the album of our dreams” and raved, “each song on Serotonin Dreams snakes into our minds in a different way, making some of our deepest emotions feel understood and making some of our favorite playlists feel like they just found a new winner to add.”
Serotonin Dreams features collaborations with various artists, including blackbear (“IDGAF”), mxmtoon (“Prairies”), and Powfu (“Contigo”). Consequence declared “BoyWithUke has proven himself to be particularly prolific” and “‘Understand’ shows potential to be the next of BoyWithUke’s hits.” Leading up to the anxiously awaited release of Serotonin Dreams, BoyWithUke dropped his viral singles “Long Drives” and “IDGAF” feat. blackbear. Billboard praised “IDGAF”as “a gently heartbroken kiss-off anthem about moving on from a toxic ex,” while Ones To Watch described it as “perfectly petty in all the right ways, BoyWithUke and blackbear match earworm, radio-ready production with unapologetic low blows.” Indie Shuffle proclaimed, “BoyWithUke has slowly become a household name in the indie music scene; now working with Blackbear, the combo of melancholia and high-energy pop has made for a gallery of pure entertainment and an addictive earworm at that!”
The tracks followed BoyWithUke’s 2021 gold-certified smash hit “Toxic,” which has amassed over 1.2 billion global streams to date and peaked at #1 on the Alternative Radio Chart for two consecutive weeks. Not to mention, his record-breaking live performance of the song for Genius’ Open Mic series is the platform’s “the #1 most-viewed video on Genius” with over 86 million views and counting.
Earlier this summer, BoyWithUke sold out his first-ever headline shows in New York and Los Angeles.
You may be sick of your ex, but you’ll never be sick of BoyWithUke and Oliver Tree!
