Pop sensation Tate McRae recently released her hit single “Greedy,” and in a recent interview with People Magazine, she shared the inspiration and meaning behind the song. McRae explained that the song’s concept was born from a chance encounter during a night out.
McRae revealed, “A guy had come up to me at a bar and he was like, ‘Oh, you’re so mysterious, and I feel like I know nothing about you. You keep your cards so close to your chest.’ Then I was thinking, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, it takes a lot for me to really open up and get to know someone. You have to really get close to me.'”
This interaction sparked the creation of the song, which McRae described as a “sassy” track that embodies a sense of empowerment. She said, “We started writing this really sassy song about the feeling of having utter confidence, being like, ‘Yeah, it takes a lot to really get me to open up.’ And it ended up feeling like this really cool female empowerment song, which I loved.”
The music video for “Greedy,” which was released in September, has garnered significant attention, with McRae channeling a hockey theme. Some fans have speculated that the video might contain subtle references to her ex, who was a hockey player.
Tate McRae’s “Greedy” has resonated with listeners and has become a symbol of female empowerment. The song’s inspiration from a chance encounter at a bar highlights the unexpected sources of creativity that can lead to hit songs.
