Today, Surf Mesa released the first video for his breakout hit, “ily (i love you baby)” featuring Emilee. Like the song, the clip exudes joy and serenity as Powell Aguirre, the 20-year-old electronic producer behind Surf Mesa, takes a vintage Mustang convertible and his skateboard to Southern California beaches and byways at sunset.
Surf Mesa, who was recently on the cover of Pop Rising, has been making bedroom beats since the 3rd grade. He came across Emilee Flood’s popular cover of the song on her TikTok, and remixed it, giving it a dreamy vibe. Since its release, “ily (i love you baby)” has amassed more than 160 million cumulative global streams. The track appears regularly on Rolling Stone and Billboard’s top trending charts and can be heard on countless playlists worldwide. Enjoy!
