Lauv’s ‘Kids Are Born Stars’ is a nostalgic and sentimental pop banger

Lauv is back and with no surprise to us at Happy, he’s releasing some ripper tracks before his forthcoming album drops.

Imagine if you could tell your younger self not to worry about the girl who doesn’t like you back or the bullies in school and that everything was going to be okay.

Lauv has taken the chance to do exactly that with his latest single and music video and it’s the cutest thing ever.

Kids Are Born Stars

The Kids Are Born Stars music video, directed by Hannah Lux Davis, is downright adorable. The storyline follows a youthful romance with a school bus and all and Lauv dancing through the scenes, connecting with his younger self who is trying to crack on with his crush. 

Lauv spoke about the release and how he wanted to give himself a confidence boost with this infections bop: “When I started making this album, I was doing a lot of inner child meditation work and this song was me getting back in touch with my 8th grade self and giving him a little dose of confidence because Lord knows he would’ve needed it back then. 

“As an adult I had lost touch with my sense of confidence too and making this song and the whole album helped me get back in touch with the person I really am.” 

Even though it’s a super fun and energetic pop tune, Kids Are Born Stars has hit us right in the feels.

Lauv sings “Girl, just kiss me before you miss me, cause someday I’m gonna be a really big star” and he’s not wrong. Lauv has undeniable star power and we cannot wait to see it shine in his upcoming album All 4 Nothing.

Kids Are Born Stars is the third single off All 4 Nothing, Lauv’s second full-length album which is set to be released on August 5.
