|NEIKED x MAE MULLER x POLO G DEBUT THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR MAGNETIC NEW SINGLE “BETTER DAYS”|
|(Hollywood, CA) — British singer/songwriter Mae Muller, Swedish hitmaker NEIKED and platinum-selling rapper Polo G premiere the video for their euphoric new single “Better Days.” |
Directed by Tom Dream (Gucci, Arlo Parks, Celeste) the video features all three artists living in a retro world with Mae Muller taking center stage of the narrative. Produced by NEIKED, “Better Days” deliversa dance-ready collision of radiant horns, glittering synth and pulse-pounding beats — an irresistible setting for Mae’s lush and lovely vocal work. As she voices her longing for a brighter future, Polo G drops in for a heart-on-sleeve verse that perfectly amplifies the track’s hopeful mood.
Speaking about the collaboration and the new video, NEIKED exclaimed, “’BETTER DAYS’ – When I met with Tom Dream, I knew he’d be able to make something great – and this is really what that is, something great. A big shout out to Mae and Polo G for putting on a sick performance too. I have been working hard on my upcoming music this year & now is a perfect time to finally share the first piece of the NEIKED puzzle.”
Mae Muller continued “This is my favourite video I’ve done so far!! The pastel colours, to the set design, to the hair and make up, I am literally quite obsessed with it. I feel like me, NEIKED and Polo G are all such different characters, but it makes it that much more magical! I hope you love it as much as I do <3”
Released in September, “Better Days” has already amassed over one million streams and arrives as the latest in a series of exciting collaborations from Mae, including tracks like “When You’re Out” (a June release created with chart-topping British duo Billen Ted). Last year, Mae made waves with her much-acclaimed debut EP no one else, not even you, an eight-track project built on her fearlessly honest yet free-spirited approach to songwriting. Made with producers/co-writers like Rick Nowels (Madonna, Lana Del Rey), Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Alicia Keys), Skyler Stonestreet (Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa), and Kenny Beats (FKA twigs, Ed Sheeran), the EP brings Mae’s raw vulnerability to an immaculately composed, but unpredictable brand of pop music.

Mae’s debut EP no one else, not even you, offers a rarely-glimpsed look at the tension between the thrill of new love and the fear of losing your sense of self and showcases the fearlessly honest, yet irresistibly fun song writing that’s hailed Mae as “a clear pop sensation in the making” by Wonderland and the “new queen” by NYLON. 2021 has seen her team up with chart-topping duo Billen Ted for “When You’re Out,” renowned rapper Big Zuu for “I Did It” and rising UK talent Master Peace for “Boyfriend.” To date, Mae has amassed over 200 million streams globally, with her songs featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s A-List Pop, In My Room, Future Hits and more. She’s also stormed her way through the live world, selling out an early 2020 headline tour of the U.K. and earning an adoring worldwide following who’ve come to rely on her uncompromising self-expression. Ahead of her 2022 rescheduled UK tour (including the O2 Forum Kentish Town) this summer has seen Mae take to festival stages across the UK to huge crowds including the likes of Reading & Leeds, Bestival, Latitude and Sundown Festival.
Hailing from Sweden, producer and songwriter NEIKED is widely known for his smash hit “Sexual,” which has surpassed 600 million streams globally and garnered over one million UK sales.

NEIKED followed up with global smash hit ‘What Lovers Do’ in collaboration with SZA and Maroon 5, generating a massive Top 10 placement in 39 countries (#3 in the US) with an impressive 2.5+ billion streams across all platforms.
