Dixie D’Amelio isn’t holding back!
In case you missed it, the 19-year-old social media star — who’s gained over 27 million followers on TikTok and landed a leading role on Brat TV’s “Attaway General” — dropped her debut single, “Be Happy,” last week and we’ve had it stuck in our heads ever since! The oh-so-relatable track sheds light on the real and raw rollercoaster ride of being a teen, and serves as an important reminder that it’s okay to not be okay.
And the best part? It’s already racked up 2.5 million Spotify streams in just a few days! To celebrate, Dixie also premiered the accompanying visual, which was filmed entirely out of her family’s Los Angeles-based home, and highlights a balance of happy moments (like playtime with her insanely adorable pup) and reflective alone time. Check it out:
“But sometimes I don’t wanna be happy // Don’t hold it against me // If I’m down just leave me there // Let me be sad // Sometimes I just wanna be lonely // Don’t need you to hold me // If I’m low you don’t need to care // Let me be sad,” she sings.
