At only 17-years-old, teen pop sensation Mackenzie Sol is a triple-threat. His newest single “Taken,” written by Grammy-Award winning songwriter/producer Diane Warren and produced by U.K. based, Australian born producer Steve Manovski (Sigala, Nile Rodgers, Noah Cyrus; Calum Scott) was just released today and celebrates the pure energy of teen romance.
“I immediately loved the beat of this song, and lyrically I loved the fact that it’s about me with a really hot girl,” Mackenzie joked about the song, written by Warren (Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” and LeAnn Rimes’ version of “How Do I Live”).
The song is an easy pop smash, capturing the energy and imagination of teenage romance:
“If somebody looks a little too deep in your eyes
Tell ’em your taken
Tell ’em you’re coming home with me
And you’re gonna be staying
Tell ’em you’re making plans for the rest of the night
For the rest of your life”
Last year, Mackenzie made his worldwide label debut with “Laugh,” which was well-received for its “Bieber-inflected phrasing” and secured him content deals with Awesomeness TV, Musical.ly and a stint on Radio Disney. He was also a headlining act on the 2017 Boys of Summer U.S. tour and was a featured act on the Bars & Melody Generation Z 2018 U.K. tour.
