Tate McRae


Tate McRae (born Tate Rosner McRae, on July 1, 2003) is a singer, songwriter, and dancer from Calgary, Canada.

Starting out as a dancer, Tate first gained prominence at the age of 13 as the first Canadian finalist on the American reality television series So You Think You Can Dance.

In 2017, Tate started her YouTube video series Create With Tate, with a focus on vlogs, dance, and showcasing her original songs she wrote and recorded in her bedroom. When she was 14, she uploaded her debut song titled “One Day”. The song drastically gained popularity and compelled her to officially release the song independently.

Along with the release of her single, “tear myself apart”, in August 2019, Tate announced she was signing to RCA Records. Out of the 11 labels that reached out to her, she decided on RCA as they supported her wish to maintain her dance career alongside her music. Tate then released the EP TOO YOUNG TO BE SAD on March 26, 2021, which featured her first single to amass over 1 billion streams, “you broke me first”.

On May 27, 2022, Tate released her much awaited debut album, i used to think i could fly. The album explored the challenge of moving on from a breakup whilst harboring feelings of resentment towards an ex-lover.

After garnering a steady fanbase, Tate broke out into mainstream success with “greedy”, released on 15 September, 2023. A month prior to its release, Tate teased the song via TikTok, generating mass anticipation for its release. “greedy” hit #1 on the Billboard Canadian Hot 100, #3 on the Billboard American Hot 100 (making it her first American top ten hit), and was streamed over 1 million times the day of its release, marking it as her biggest single to date.

Following the release of “greedy”, Tate released the single “exes” on November 17, 2023, which also performed well commercially, debuting at #20 on Global Spotify, with over 2.9 million streams. On December 8, 2023, she released her sophomore album THINK LATER. The album marked Tate’s evolution into a more confident and assertive version of herself. While she remained true to her introspective roots, reflecting on her past self and relationships at points during the album, she ultimately embraced her motto of “live now, think later”.
