Tate McRae is no stranger to stardom, having made history at age 13 as the first Canadian finalist on So You Think You Can Dance. Fiercely ambitious and a relentless hard worker, McRae saw dance as just one part of her toolbox, not a defining artistic characteristic. The Calgary-born artist began releasing singles in 2017, eventually dropping her first EP, all the things i never said, in 2020. Two years later, she shared her debut LP, i used to think i could fly. It was a statement, a shout from the mountaintop: “I’m here to stay.” McRae has followed up that defining moment with an even more determined album, THINK LATER. The push between id and ego emerges most playfully on “greedy,” the album’s lead single and one of the biggest tracks released in 2023. Over steel drums and booming bass, McRae sings, “Baby, please believe me/I'll put you through hell/Just to know me, yeah, yeah/So sure of yourself/Baby, don't get greedy/That shit won't end well.” The temptation is there, McRae knows better, but she might not be able to help herself. THINK LATER is full of similarly self-aware pop bangers, unfiltered highs and lows that come with growing up as a celebrity.
