In an interview with iHeartRadio’s JoJo Wright last week, TikTok star Addison Rae revealed that she is “working on an album right now, and hopefully that will be coming out super soon. Sooner than people think.”
Rae has seemed to switch from ring light to recording studio because it seems like she has taken a shift in her career. After the TikTok’s single “Obsessed,” which racked up over 18 million views, the singer took some time off to write her new album, which she wanted to make “special,” Dexerto reported.

While on iHeartRadio, show host, JoJo Wright, pressed Rae for details regarding the new album to which she responded with, “It definitely is secret, but I’ll say, Benny Blanco, that’s all I’ll give!”
In an Interview with Rae in early April, she said she wanted to make this album “special” and meaningful.
The TikTok star has yet to put a date on the album, but according to her words, we shouldn’t have to wait much longer before we see Rae’s TikTok friends dancing to the set of songs.
The 20-year-old has also become close with the Kardashian family, more specifically Kourtney, and has most recently appeared on Jimmy Fallon to teach the late-night host how to do a few TikTok dances.
The segment drew a tremendous amount of backlash due to the fact that many of the songs Rae danced to on the show were originally choreographed by black, indigenous and people of color, according to USA Today.
“On our last show before break, we did a bit with Addison Rae where she taught me eight viral TikTok dances,” Fallon stated live. “Now, we recognize that the creators of those dances deserve to have their own spotlight. So right now, some of the creators will join me to talk about how their dance went viral and then perform the dance themselves.”
As of 2020, Rae is the top paid TikToker according to Forbes. The TikToker’s estimated net worth is $5 million, and remembers when she was at just 1million followers while studying at LSU, “My name would be called out when I was walking to class, which was pretty mind-blowing,” Rae told Forbes.
Rae’s face has been all over billboards, TV ads, beauty lines and more. The 20-year-old is even a global spokesperson for American Eagle.
