In recent years, TikTok has proven a breeding ground for stars, with music labels and Hollywood talent agencies alike prowling the app for promising acts to add into their ranks.

Rae, 19, is a former competitive dancer who dropped out of college, where she was studying sports broadcasting, to try her hand at social media superstardom.
Rae is a member of TikTok creator collective The Hype House, and is also signed to WME -- which reps her parents, Sheri Easterling and Monty Lopez, who are TikTok stars as well. In May, she released her own merch line in collaboration with Fanjoy. In addition to TikTok, Rae also counts a sizable following on YouTube (2.8 million subscribers) and Instagram (22.9 million followers).
