    After his 2017 Grammy nomination for Producer of the Year and writing/producing songs for Twenty One Pilots, Phantogram, Lizzo, Pussy Riot, and more, Ricky Reed is finally heading back to his solo career.

    Just in time for the weekend (well, it's Thursday, which means it's basically Friday), his new song "Be The 1" will have you dancing all night. It's a little bit eerie, with a minimalistic guitar riff on loop and Reed's dramatic, confessional vocals. But when he comes in with "You don't even know it / you mean everything to me," you know he's about to hit you with a low key banger. There are so many different layers and textures hidden underneath - so what sounds like just another pop song is actually an intricate display of emotion.
