Addison didn’t just show off her style (Courtesy of the stylist) Kyle Luu), but also their movements, which were guided by choreographers Sara Biv and Calvit Hodge.

[Courtesy of YouTube]The track is a powerful anthem about how obsessed Addison is with himself … as well as her admirers! “I’m just as obsessed with myself – ee as you / Say you would die for me, I would die for me too – e / And if I lost you I would still have myself, I can’t lose / If you say that you’re obsessed with me, obsessed with me, ”says Addison, who is with another TikTok star Bryce Hall – sings in the choir.
“You might think of being obsessed with yourself in vain, but I’m not trying to communicate that,” Addison told Vogue as he spoke about trust in her lyrics. “It’s more that I can love myself as much as you love me, and that’s important. There are days when I fight and it is definitely work in progress, accepting who I am and giving me the love I deserve. But that message was so strong and I wanted to communicate it [in the lyrics]. ”

While many fans were surprised that Addison made the jump from TikTok to music, she didn’t pick it up on a whim. “Right from the start, I wanted to make sure I was writing my own music,” Addison also told Vogue. “I remember writing down lyrics as a kid and trying to figure out how to make a song out of them. [now] I learn every detail and from great songwriters. “
Addison joined TikTok in July 2019 and went from being a Louisiana State University student to a full-fledged celebrity in less than two years. Addison is also known to be close friends with Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashianand both will make their film debut in the upcoming remake of She’s All That (which is instead called He All All That).
