Get your headphones, because TikTok’s biggest stars are starting their very own music careers! Chase Hudson, otherwise known as Lil Huddy, has become one of the biggest names on the video-sharing app since it became popular in 2019. Known for his dance videos and past relationship with Charli D’Amelio, the talented teen is now making a name for himself in other parts of the entertainment industry.
January 2021 not only continued Chase’s TikTok reign but allowed fans to see a different side of the Hype House member when he made his acting debut in the digital film Downfalls High. That’s not all! The California native also shocked his millions of followers with the release of his first single, “21st Century Vampire.”
“Almost a year ago, I said in an interview that I wanted to become a musician,” Chase wrote on Instagram after his song premiered. “So stoked to share this with you guys.”
During a March 2021 appearances on “Rock This with Allison Hagendorf” the budding musician also touched on his debut single. “I feel like the meaning behind the song is for the people that don’t feel like they belong, but also for the people that like do feel comfortable with themselves,” Chase explained. “It’s a song for everyone, just kind of proclaiming, just be yourself, you know what I mean? Like, if you want to be a f–king 21st century vampire, be one. That’s kind of what it’s proclaiming.”
Since stepping foot on to the music scene, Chase also released the single “The Eulogy of You and Me,” and teased an upcoming album. “It’s like starting a video game. It’s like, OK, this is your character. Here’s a storyline,” he explained. “Like that’s kind of how I think ’21st Century Vampire’ is compared to all of my other music … It’s going to be a story of every relationship I went through. Put into one.”
When can fans expect to hear more music from the internet sensation? “We have an album coming in the summer, which is going to be very exciting,” he said, before adding that his debut record is in collaboration with Travis Barker.
