Next Up Artist Of The Week: Tate McRae


Tate McRae is our Next Up Artist of the Week! She joined EJ for a virtual interview about working on new music in quarantine, staying busy and more!

While a lot of us have been trying to distract ourselves in quarantine, Tate has been staying busy working on music, dancing and finishing her junior year of high school! But the first thing she wants to do when she's back in LA is studio sessions.

It's so weird, I've been doing so many Zoom sessions with people and writing music but it is the weirdest thing ever. I honestly hate it. You're literally just talking to a screen and I hum something, they hum something, and we're like 'what?'. You can't write a good song.

Tate says it's hard to work on music but she's not slowing down with releasing new songs! She released a couple new songs including "Vicious" with Lil Mosey and her latest single "You Broke Me First".
