Addison Rae Just Dropped Her New EP, And It’s Everything We’ve Been Waiting For!
TWO YEARS AGO, Addison Rae fantasised about becoming a music star. Her debut single, the glossy “Obsessed,” gave a modest taste of where the influencer may take a full-fledged music career, but it was her sole official release. There were rumours of a possible full-length album, as well as numerous leaked songs from it. Rae had previously referred to the project as “the lost album,” and she has now discovered it — or at least some of it.
AR, Rae’s recently released EP, collects some of the most anticipated tracks she has teased with snippets and sneak peaks since her musical debut. Among the songs is “2 Die 4,” a collaboration with pop diva Charli XCX. “She’s fantastic. She has excellent lyric ideas. “They all sound like vroom vroom lyrics,” the singer said of Rae in April 2021 on Twitter. “It’s really cute. “I think she’s a fantastic popstar.”
The album also includes full versions of previously hinted tracks such as “Nothing On (But The Radio),” “I Got It Bad,” and “It Couldn’t Been U.” AR links itself together with “Obsession,” for the first time since its debut, linking the song to an official project.
“I now have an abundance of opportunities to showcase myself as an artist.” But, as I already stated, I am learning. I am by no means an expert in this field. “I am far from perfect at any of this,” Rae admitted to Rolling Stone in 2021. “I was always just overly interested in it, and I didn’t know why,” she said of her affinity with music. I knew I was a dancer and that I like dancing to music, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with music. I always wanted to start singing and expressing my love for music in a different way throughout high school and college.”
She said, “Me as an artist, what I wanted to do, and what I wanted to communicate to my audience literally started with ‘Obsessed.'” Every song we’ve done since has felt exactly right. Now, when I listen to all of our previous tracks, I’m like, ‘Ah, what were we doing?’ It’s a procedure. It takes a long time to discover who you are as an artist.”
