Tate McRae shares about the new single, “‘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 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.
