Following hours of intrigue, the title suddenly changed minutes out from the reveal. Rae’s first video back on YouTube in 2021 was the surprise premiere of a brand new music video for ‘Obsessed.’

“I’m so emotional right now,” she said on Instagram alongside the premiere. “This song makes me feel so many things! I love music, that’s all.”
