This social media superstar is a joy to look at. Her cheerfulness is just contagious and with just a few more years, she’d be on a hotness level at par with that of Jessica Alba‘s prime. Ah yes, but if not (which is close to being impossible), she would still be worthy of a spot here on our beloved website.
Dixie D’Amelio is something to watch out for. I’m pretty sure that after social media, she would also conquer Hollywood.

She released her debut single “Be Happy” in June 2020.
Her Early Life
Dixie D’amelio was born on August 12, 2001, in Norwalk Connecticut. Growing up, she was quite active and ran track, played lacrosse, and had a secret life as a BMX rider.
“I was fifth in the nation, and I thought that was kind of cool.”
Dixie is one of many high school seniors who graduated during the COVID-19 pandemic. In September 2019, Dixie’s mom posted that Dixie is going to The University of Alabama.

In January 2020, D’Amelio signed with United Talent Agency.

On June 26, 2020, D’Amelio released her first single, “Be Happy”. As of June 28, the song has accumulated more than 1.4 million streams on Spotify.
On July 1, 2020, she dropped the music video for the song on YouTube. As of this writing, it’s amassed over 44 million views. When it was released, Dixie’s music vid was the “number one trending YouTube video in the world right now, passed Kanye West and Travis Scott’s new song, and got, like, 10 million views in a day.
“I wanted to share the honesty of this message with others, especially those around my own age… I remain so grateful for the people that surround me and the opportunities I’ve been given, but some days, as we all know, it’s not easy to be happy. My hope is that anyone who listens can be reminded that it’s okay to feel what we feel. It’s okay have a bad day. We all have them and you are not alone.”
On August 7, 2020, Dixie signed a record deal with L.A. Reid’s label HitCo Entertainment.
