TikTok star Addison Rae is continuing to prove she is more than just that with her new song ‘2 die 4‘. After releasing her clothing line, makeup, and fragrances, she then ventured onto music. Her musical journey began by releasing ‘Obsessed‘ in 2021 (which accumulated over 50 million streams on Spotify).
With music heavily inspired by the 2000s pop genre, (think of your Lady Gaga’s and Britney Spears’) Rae collabs with renowned pop star Charli XCX for this new track. After the song became viral on TikTok earlier this year, the fans were begging for a streaming release. She listened to her fans and has now released it across all streaming platforms.
Despite the track being leaked before its release date, Rae took it in her stride. She made an Instagram post stating, “A few of you may have heard these songs after they were unfortunately leaked last year.. but if you loved them, now you can listen to them on all streaming platforms!!!”. The track’s instrumental takes us into a wave of noughties nostalgia, with assistance from her flirty and sensual lyrics. ‘2 die 4‘ is a playful approach to the modern message to love oneself and not settle for less than you deserve. “I want someone who thinks I’m to die for” sings Addison on the chorus.
Charli XCX hops onto the track in the second verse. As usual, she brings her iconic vocal range and her overarching message to love yourself. She gives everything here and her stardom is unmatched. ‘2 die 4‘ is a flirty and playful banger that makes you want to get up and dance. Charli states in a tweet that “I think she a great popstar”. So, you heard it here first, we better watch out for Addison’s rise in pop music.
