British singer, who co-wrote “Ya Ya” on Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter, performs track from her own 2023 LP My Soft Machine

Fresh off her co-write on Beyoncé’s Cowboy Carter, Arlo Parks appeared on Friday’s Tonight Show to perform her own “Devotion.”

The Nineties rock-inspired track features on Parks’ most recent LP My Soft Machine, one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Best Albums of 2023.

“‘Devotion’ to me is a song about feeling so in love it’s almost like being ripped apart, there’s an intensity, a wildness and a tenderness,” the British singer previously said of the track in a statement. “This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever made, it draws from the bands that made me fall in love with music from Deftones to Yo La Tengo to Smashing Pumpkins to My Bloody Valentine.”

Our review highlighted “Devotion,” saying “the grunge-soul love song explodes into a chunky riff at its climax, its lyrical references to Deftones and Kim Deal becoming alive in its 2023 vision of the alt-rock era’s poppiest peaks.”


Parks was recently credited with co-writing the Cowboy Carter fan-favorite “Ya Ya” alongside Cadenza and Harry Edwards, revealing her involvement in a social media post following the album’s release.

“Being a part of this rich, culture shifting record truly feels like a dream come true…thank you Mariel for the trust, @Beyonce,” Parks wrote. “You are truly a FORCE – this is SPECIAL.”
