TOO YOUNG TO BE SAD (Apple Music Up Next Film Edition) - EP

Every song on Tate McRae’s sophomore EP deals with the all-consuming nature of heartache, but the Canadian singer-songwriter and Up Next artist swears she doesn’t dwell. “[The title] TOO YOUNG TO BE SAD is cool because it kind of negates everything I say in the songs,” she tells Apple Music. “I sing about intense heartbreak and how much I care about things, but the title is like, ‘Yeah...but I don’t have time to think about all that. I’ve got to live my life.’” Indeed, the project, which features her breakout hits “slower” and “you broke me first,” is notably mature and self-aware in its reflections. Rather than waste verses counting all the ways she misses him, McRae more often flips the lens on herself, recounting her missteps and the lessons she’s learned. “I keep falling for the bad ones/The always-make-me-sad ones,” she sings on “bad ones,” a trap-textured ballad about tripping on the wrong guys. "But I'm kinda sick and tired, and you're so selfish/Say that I'm not coming back to you.”
