Dixie D’Amelio is more than a TikTok superstar — she’s also a singer, having released her first single last month, and now, she’s scored a huge record deal with a major label in the industry.

Dixie D’Amelio turned heads — and inspired more than a few good-natured memes — across the internet upon the release of her debut single ‘Be Happy’ on July 1, showing off an impressive singing voice as scouted out by YouTuber James Charles.

However, it seems the TikToker has a bright future in the music world outside of her single song, having signed to major record label Hitco on August 7.

D’Amelio broke the news with an enthusiastic Instagram photo the same day, posing with the famous American record label exec ‘LA Reid.’

“Excited to announce that I have joined the Hitco music family,” D’Amelio wrote. “Thank you LA Reid!”

“So excited to welcome Dixie D’Amelio into the Hitco music family,” Reid wrote in a similar post. “Special thank you to the D’Amelio family and team!”

This move comes after massive her joint collaboration alongside sister Charli D’Amelio for makeup brand Morphe, with the sisters unveiling a unique product line that reflects their own personal “no makeup, makeup” style.

That’s not all; Dixie has also graduated from high school in the midst of these major life developments. How many of us can say we were so successful at 18 years old?

“In my five years of high school, my entire life changed twice, and I’m so grateful for each of these experiences, even though at the time I would’ve wished for nothing more than to not be here,” Dixie wrote in an Instagram post. “I’m so proud of myself and all of the ways I persevered through so many different challenges.”

ok so I know I kind of made a general post yesterday, but honestly getting through high school is one of the hardest challenge but biggest accomplishment in my life. The ups and downs made me who I am right now and made me appreciate every single day. In my five years of high school, my entire life changed twice and I’m so grateful for each of these experiences even though at the time I would’ve wished for nothing more than to not be here. i’m so proud of myself and all of the ways I persevered through so many different challenges. Life seems so easy now and so possible. I’m so grateful for all of the people I met along the way even if we no longer talk because that experience just helped me grow and learn even more. thank you all so much for supporting me and watching me continue to grow up right in front of you. I have so much love for every single person I meet and who I cross paths with, thank y’all for everything.? also photos by @bryant

Other TikTokers have congratulated Dixie on her success, including Addison Rae, the platform’s second-most-followed creator and its highest-earning user.

With so much happening for the D’Amelio sisters, there’s no telling what’s in store for the net’s most popular duo in the future.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
