Meghan Trainor & Ricky Reed Talk "No"
The singer and producer Ricky Reed talk how they got people saying yes with "No."

Ricky Reed comes full circle with surprise single “Express Myself.” The LA-based hitmaker first made waves as the face of Wallpaper and then stepped behind the boards to produce tracks for other artists — crafting a string of smash hits including Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty,” Pitbull’s “Fireball” and Meghan Trainor’s “Me Too.” He returned to the artist fold last week, but this feels more like a rebirth than a resumption. While Wallpaper specialized in party music, Ricky Reed has a lot more to say.

“I’ve spent my last few years helping other artists tell their stories,” the Nice Life boss says. “The truth is, I’ve had a pretty wild run since 2013 with ocean-floor lows and incredible highs. I made a last minute decision to throw this one out to the people who have been feeling the same: caught in a rut and needing to shake it off.” And Ricky has obviously touched a nerve with the song racking up 100,000+ streams on Spotify in its first week. Listen to the artist/producer’s uplifting and relatable “Express Myself” below.
