She took advantage of the spotlight by dropping her debut single, “Obsessed” on March 19. It’s a self-love anthem all about being, well, “obsessed” with yourself.
“I’m so emotional right now. this song makes me feel so many things!!! I love music. that’s all,” she wrote in an Instagram caption.
Most fans had no idea Rae was even interested in music, much less working on a pop song with a full music video.
“I didn’t expect this,” one commenter wrote.
“i love how she didn’t over hype it and just let it come out with out letting us know,” a third commented.
Rae told Vogue she’s actually been working on the song since last year.
She said the song is about self-affirmation and was inspired by artists like Taylor Swift.
