Tate McRae is the recent queen of teasing iconic unreleased songs on TikTok, and she’s finally adding to her musical catalog with ‘what would you do?,’ a guitar-infused callout to someone who’s mistreating her. It’s equally heartbreaking and bad*ss, so it shows off every aspect of what Tate does best! We’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for this song since she posted a snippet.
“What would you do if I leave and don’t come back?
I hope it breaks you in two
If I gave back all the pain that you put me through…
What would you do?”
Just like her recent single ‘she’s all i wanna be,’ ‘what would you do?’ manages to tackle some of the hardest feelings out there without feeling too heavy or draining. Although we do love some #sadgirltate, which she’s given us with tracks like ‘feel like sh*t’ and ‘chaotic.’
Tate has truly been feeding us when it comes to content lately, and it’s making us more hyped than ever for her debut album, i used to think i could fly. The album comes out on May 27th, so naturally, we’ll be blasting ‘what would you do?’ until release day. With writing and production credits from Tate herself, Blake Slatkin, Charlie Puth, and Alexander 23, can you blame us?
And not only is Tate at the top of her game in the music department, but fans worldwide will get a chance to see ‘what would you do?’ live soon! Well… sort of. Starting on May 17th, Tate is gonna have her own virtual world in Roblox, complete with several virtual concerts kicking off on May 19th. Inspired by the i used to think i could fly album title and cover art, the world will have an airport theme where you can go on adventures, collect virtual merch, and even more.
If you’re like us and you’ve spent years laughing at videos like this one, you’ll understand how exciting this moment really is.
So what better way to get ready for her Roblox concert and what will hopefully be a summer full of fun memories than to listen to ‘what would you do?’ on repeat for a few days straight? Which song on i used to think i could fly are you most excited to hear? Come get excited with us in the comments below or hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!
