"All for Us" is a song by English singer Labrinth released through Syco Music on 30 June 2019.

Background and composition

Written and produced solely by Labrinth,[3] "All for Us" comprises "vocal choruses and gritty synths to create a dreadful atmosphere that’s quickly contrasted with a lovesick chorus".[4] It depicts him as "determined to make things work between him and his partner" as he "reflects on his parents' poor marriage".[4] A reworked version, which features American actress and singer Zendaya, was released in August.[5] The reworked version appeared on Labrinth's second studio album, Imagination & the Misfit Kid.[6] It has been described as "dark and epic, with a buzzing bass and chanting vocals".[7]

Appearances in other media

"All for Us" appeared during the season finale of the American teen drama series Euphoria.[1] Zendaya, who stars in the series, performed the song during the episode.[8] It is set to a scene in which her character is "transported to another world", "propped up by a crowd of dancers", and "rises, then falls into their arms".[7][9] For this scene, the song won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics in 2020.[10]
