Artist of the Week: Dixie D'Amelio
“Be Happy” is a sobering pop song about mental health during lockdown. The remix is more of the same relatable message, but adds new layers of beats for a more uptempo and hip-hop-influenced vibe. Of course, it also features outstanding new verses by blackbear and Lil Mosey—who are rising music stars in their own right!
D’Amelio has amassed more than 37 million followers on Tiktok, which makes her one of the top 10 most popular TikTok personalities in the world. “Be Happy” was the 19-year-old influencer’s first foray into music, which debuted at No. #1 earlier this year on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. And the official music video for the song has earned more than 77 million views on YouTube.
The “Be Happy” remix isn’t all the only news from D’Amelio we’re celebrating this week though. We’re also proud to announce she’s set to co-host the post-show for the 10th annual iHeartRadio Music Festival next week!
From the comfort and safety of their own homes, millions of fans will be able to experience one-of-a-kind collaborations and performances from their favorite artists, such as BTS, Coldplay, Kane Brown and many others!
