Fans Choose Tate McRae’s ‘Exes’ as This Week’s Favorite New Music

Tate McRae‘s “Exes” has topped this week’s new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Nov. 17) on Billboard, choosing the 20-year-old pop star’s splashy new single as their favorite new music release of the past week.


“Exes” brought in nearly 39% of the vote, beating out new music by Drake (For All The Dogs Scary Hours Edition), André 3000 (New Blue Sun), Sabrina Carpenter (Fruitcake EP), Ozuna (Cosmo), and others.

The Ryan Tedder-produced “Exes” is the second single from the Billboard cover star‘s sophomore album, Think Later, which is set for release on Dec. 8 through RCA Records.

“This song was kind of like the last Hail Mary of the album, and we wrote it in like, I kid you not, 30 minutes, and recorded and produced the whole thing within 90 minutes,” she told Rolling Stone. “It was basically just the last remaining thoughts in my head for the album.”

The Canadian singer’s upcoming album will feature her previously released hit song “Greedy,” which currently sits at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. She will also embark on a 53-date 2024 tour in support of the forthcoming release, beginning April 17 in Dublin, Ireland.

McRae, who made recently her Saturday Night Live debut, is a finalist at this year’s Billboard Music Awards for top dance/electronic song (“10:35”). She’ll also perform at the Sunday (Nov. 19) ceremony, which you can watch on or through the Billboard and BBMAs social media channels.

Trailing behind “Exes” on the poll is Drake’s For All the Dogs Scary Hours Edition. The third installment of his Scary Hours extended play series brought in nearly 27% of the vote.
