In daily music news, the people behind the scenes rarely catch the spotlight. So, today, we’re flipping the script.
As a Grammy-winning producer, songwriter, and artist, New York native Mike Sabath is the perfect person to start with. The 23-year-old has spent the past few years making music with the biggest names in the world, and is becoming a household name when it comes to artists trying to score hits. His most recent release is with friends and co-writers, Shawn Mendes, Eddie Benjamin, and Scott Harris, on Shawn Mendes’ “It’ll Be Okay.” The heartfelt single acts as a love letter, delivering closure on the news of Mendes and Camila Cabello’s recent break-up. A perfect contrast to his previous energized pop single, “Don’t Go Yet,” with Camila Cabello, “It’ll Be Okay,” is a sentimental ballad that puts Sabath’s versatile production on full display.
Since signing a publishing deal with Sony ATV in 2017, Sabath has established a catalog of hit songs, including “I Can’t Get Enough,” by benny blanco, Selena Gomez, J Balvin, and Tainy, “Exactly How I Feel” from Lizzo’s Grammy-winning album, Cuz I Love You, and many others. Sabath also debuted his career as a solo artist in 2020, signing to Warner music, releasing his first single, “Good Energy," and featuring on Meghan Trainor’s “Wave,” which he also produced.
