16-year-old Calgary native Tate McRae is our ‘One To Watch’ artist this month, and she stopped by KiSS 92.5 to perform her single ‘stupid’ live, and showed us exactly why we have her pegged as the next big thing!

Stripping back the instrumentation to just an acoustic guitar allowed the songs lyrics and Tate’s voice to shine.

The song is about McCrae getting caught up in her thoughts about a love interest, “only think about him on the weekdays and weekends / only in the mornings and evenings /
only when i wake up and sleep in / oh my god”.

“stupid” is off of her debut EP all the things i never said, which was released last month.

The 5-track EP includes ‘Tear Myself Apart,’ which is a song that was co-written by Billie Eilish and her brother / song-writing partner, Finneas.
