Tate McRae has become one of our favorite pop girls over the past few years, but did you know she’s also a talented dancer? Tate actually built her platform with dance videos she posted on her YouTube channel, before she started to post covers. She told The Honey POP earlier this year:
I could never decide [between singing, dancing, and songwriting]. I couldn’t drop any one of them — they all give me some sort of escape in different ways.
While she’s mostly focusing on music now, she hasn’t forgotten her roots and makes sure to keep her dance skills looking perfect. Here are five music videos where she shows off her talent!
‘feel like sh*t’
Tate tries to get over an ex on ‘feel like sh*t,’ and the complex dance in the video mirrors how confusing the end of a relationship can be. We’re obsessed with the chemistry between Tate and her dance partner Mason Cutler! The music video really brings the song’s tension and frustration to life.
‘working’ With Khalid
Tate must love ‘working’ as much as we do, because she spends most of the music video jamming out with her headphones on! The video matches the song’s fun energy so well, and we wish we could rock out with Tate.
Like a rubber band, Tate snapped on this one! She alternates between a cozy bedroom scene and an almost sci-fi, darker set as she dances out her frustrations about a heartbreak. We wanna hug her, but we also don’t wanna distract her from her intricate moves!
‘lie to me’ With Ali Gatie
Most of Tate’s scenes in ‘lie to me’ are her dancing, and we’re thankful because her routine is incredible! What’s maybe even more impressive than her flexibility and elegance is the fact that it was an 11-hour overnight shoot. Imagine putting in that much work in the dead of night!
‘friends don’t look at friends that way’
The ‘friends don’t look at friends that way’ music video is mostly monochromatic, letting Tate’s emotions and dancing take center stage as the blue light reflects her “blue” mood. We love that the video’s simplicity puts the spotlight on Tate and her storytelling!
