Bellah Mae

When Bellah Mae uploaded a snippet of her debut single, the grungy pop punk stomper ‘Boyfriend Of The Year’, to TikTok, she had a feeling that the song would pop off. Shortly after she teased the song on TikTok, the video racked up over 1 million views. “My job as a songwriter is to execute an emotion that we’re all feeling into something that is specific but that also hits home to people,” she says. “I just think about all the tears that go into a song like ‘Boyfriend Of The Year’ and how amazing it is that there are people who care about that song and relate to it.  Now I just can’t wait to start performing the songs live. It’s one thing having people message you on social media to say they like your song, but it’s another to hear your lyrics sung back to you. That is just going to be incredible.”
