Rising global singer/songwriter Tate McRae releases her latest track and music video for “r u ok” today via RCA Records (listen/watch here). Co-written with Bryan Fryzel (Blackbear, Machine Gun Kelly) and Elizabeth Lowell Boland (Hailee Steinfield, Madison Beer), the ukulele driven track shows another side to Tate’s already impressive repertoire.
“‘r u ok’ is a song that I never thought I’d write,” says McRae. “It has a very sassy and feisty tone, which made it a challenge to dive into that perspective – as I think I’m quite the opposite. I love that in this song there is a lot of emotional meaning behind the lyrics, with very trappy, bright and contrasting production at the same time.”
Tate’s current single, “you broke me first” continues to dominate all over the globe. The track currently has over 500 million streams worldwide and helped Tate to secure her spot in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Emerging Artist Chart and on the Hot 100 Chart. The track is currently Top 25 at Top 40 radio and Top 10 on Mediabase’s Dance Airplay Chart and continuing to rise. Overseas, the track peaked at #3 in the UK and has been in the Top 10 on the chart for two months. It’s also Top 25 on various singles charts in 12 countries. The track is platinum in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Singapore and Sweden and gold in the US, UK, Indonesia & Malaysia.
Mixing her vocal ability with her unparalleled dance moves, Tate performed the single on the MTV’s European Music Awards (watch here) as well as Jimmy Kimmel Live! in October (watch here) and the VMA Pre-show (watch here) in August. She was also named to Forbes 30 Under 30 List for 2021 as the youngest musician on the list as well as Pandora’s Artists To Watch 2021 list and included on Billboard’s 21 Under 21 One’s To Watch list.
