Don’t get “Greedy,” but fans are about to see a lot more of Tate McRae. The 20-year-old pop star announced on Monday (Nov. 6) that her sophomore album Think Later will be arriving on Dec. 6 via RCA Records.

“We’re here guys. My sophomore album. This album means sooo much to me and I can’t believe it’s so close to coming out,” she wrote on Instagram alongside the album artwork, which features McRae standing against a black background with the album name written across her hockey leg pads. “Writing this whole thing was one of the most stressful, exciting, nerve racking, and fun things I’ve ever gone through. For the first time in my life I lived this year a little less with my head and a little more with my intuition – and I rlly hope u guys can feel that through the music. Through the biggest highs of my life to the lowest of lows – I feel so happy that it is now gonna be yours <3 Here’s to 20 years old and figuring who the f— I am haha”

‘Sweet’ Success: Hozier Hits No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 for First Time

Plus, Sabrina Carpenter scores her first Hot 100 top 10 as "Espresso" debuts at No. 7.

Hozier’s “Too Sweet” ascends to No. 1, from No. 2, on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, three weeks after it debuted at No. 5. The Irish singer-songwriter achieves his first Hot 100 leader. In his sole prior run in the top 10, he hit No. 2 with his breakthrough hit “Take Me to Church” in 2014-15.

“Too Sweet” is from Hozier’s EP Unheard, which debuted three weeks ago as his fourth Billboard 200 top 10. In 2023, he began his first U.S. tour since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic; the trek continues with international dates scheduled through November. He told Billboard ahead of the tour’s start, and reflecting anticipation for his new music, “I’m just excited to share the work live with a fan base that has been with me now for 10 years.”
