After the track went viral on TikTok, Tessa Violet is now sharing the animated video for ‘Wishful Drinking’, lifted from last year’s debut album ‘Bad Ideas’.

“‘Wishful Drinking’ was always one of my favorites, but it was never released as a focus single. Fast forward 9 months and it’s now my second biggest song!” Tessa says. “Sometimes all a song needs is a spotlight to allow it to shine. Like a lot of people, I got really into TikTok during quarantine. I was trying to find a way I could use the platform to help shed a light on my music (since cutting through the noise is one of the hardest things for an artist without major label backing). I had this idea to try to make a song of mine go viral by creating an interesting trend around it (without outing myself as the artist of the song) - and it worked! What’s ironic is that now I’m experiencing this strange phenomenon where some people on the street will recognize me from TikTok, but still not know I’m the artist who created the song-Ha! It’s a fun moment when people put it all together.”
