Tate McRae will make her Billboard Music Awards debut by performing her hit “Greedy,” which leaps from No. 22 to No. 11 on the current Billboard Hot 100. It is her second top 20 hit, following “You Broke Me First,” which reached No. 17 in March 2021. In addition to her debut BBMA performance, McRae also makes her debut on Billboard‘s cover this week.
The performance was filmed at the new Moxy Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, a part of the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio of hotel brands. Marriott Bonvoy, Marriott’s travel program and marketplace, is presenting this year’s BBMAs.
McRae is a 2023 Billboard Music Awards finalist for top dance/electronic song for the second year in a row for the Tiësto-led track “10:35,” which reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and No. 69 on the Hot 100. McRae was nominated in that same category last year for “You,” a collab with Regard and Troye Sivan.
“Greedy” will be featured on McRae’s sophomore album Think Later, to be released Dec. 8 via RCA Records in advance of her 2024 world tour.
McRae joins previously announced BBMAs performers Mariah Carey, Bebe Rexha & David Guetta, KAROL G, NewJeans, Peso Pluma, Stray Kids and Morgan Wallen. Performances and awards will roll out across BBMAs and Billboard social channels, as well as via BBMAs.watch, on Sunday, Nov. 19, beginning at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
McRae, 20, has had seven Hot 100 hits, including two this year. The singer, who was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, has also had seven charted songs on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart, including “You Broke Me First,” which reached No. 2 in April 2021. “Greedy” jumps to No. 7 on that chart this week.
Taylor Swift is the top finalist at the 2023 BBMAs with nods in 20 categories. Morgan Wallen and SZA are runners-up, with 17 entries each. They are followed by The Weeknd (16); Drake and Zach Bryan (14); Luke Combs (10); 21 Savage, Metro Boomin and Miley Cyrus (nine each); Beyoncé and Rema (seven each); Bad Bunny and Peso Pluma (six each); and Ariana Grande, David Guetta, Eslabon Armado, Karol G, NewJeans and Selena Gomez (five each).
The 2023 BBMAs will honor the year’s hottest names in music determined by year-end performance metrics on the Billboard charts. The program, produced by Dick Clark Productions, will deliver a reimagined award show concept that will entertain fans with music and exclusive content. Performances and award celebrations will take place in global locations, in the midst of sold-out tours, and in custom venues.
In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, the BBMAs and Spotify Fans First have teamed up to identify fans who have consumed the most hours of music over the past year and helped drive their favorite artists to the top spots on the Billboard charts. These fans will receive a “golden ticket” granting them access to attend a performance curated by their favorite artists, expressly for the 2023 BBMAs.
McRae’s performance and two BBMAs acceptance speeches will be hosted at hotel brands within the Marriott Bonvoy portfolio. Additionally, Marriott Bonvoy will provide a select group of fans access to attend five BBMAs performances via Marriott Bonvoy Moments. Other sponsors include Lexus, who will surprise one lucky fan with VIP treatment with a private ride in a luxury Lexus vehicle to the one-of-a-kind performance.
