“Feel Like Sh*t” by Tate McRae
This is one of those types of narratives that relies on the favorite song of a now defunct romantic couple as a plot device. In other words, the singer has done her very best to forget about her ex, who is the addressee. But when that particular song comes on, as revealed in the first verse, she can’t help but to get into her feelings concerning the two of them no longer being together.
And of course such an idea is indicative of the more simply reality that she is still in love with the addressee. And Tate is not frontin’ in terms of getting that point across. She has made conscientious efforts to expel feelings for this individual from her heart. But emotional, as well as amorous evidence firmly indicate that doing so is pretty much an act of vanity.
Or at least that’s how things currently stand in the vocalist’s life. And such is what Tate means when she asserts that she “feel(s) like sh*t”. Or explained otherwise, in the here and now she has yet to “get used to” being devoid of the man she truly loves.
Tate McRae and “Feel Like Sh*t”
Tate McRae is an entertainer who managed to make a name for herself at a very early age, around the time most of us are in grade school. And this is due to the fact that, as her career history reads, she was born with exceptional dancing talent. But in the late 2010s McRae, who was born in 2003, also dipped her feet into the music game and managed to also garner notable attention in that regard, at first via social media.
Said positive attention eventually led to Tate McRae signing with RCA Records in 2019, thus far releasing two EPs, “All the Things I never Said” (2020) and “Too Young to Be Sad” (2021), under that label. The latter of those projects made a little bit of noise internationally, in addition to being certified gold in McRae’s homeland of Canada.
Meanwhile, it has been postulated that “Feel Like Sh*t” is the lead single from what will be Tate McRae’s debut LP, though at the time of its release its technically a standalone single.
The director of track’s music video is Sam Sulam. And it features a professional actor/dancer by the name of Mason Cutler.
Russ Chell acted as both a writer and producer of this song. He co-produced it with Jasper Harris, with the other writers being:
- Jacob Kasher
- Victoria Zaro
- Tate McRae
