10 things you probably didn’t know about Role Model

Everything you need to know about Emma Chamberlain's boyfriend

You may know Role Model for his music, or maybe his famous girlfriend but how much do you really know about this singer, who we expect to see a whole lot more of this year?

Luckily for you we did the deep diving to find out everything we could about Emma Chamberlain’s other-half Role Model.

He’s Emma Chamberlain’s boyfriend

Okay, starting with the potentially obvious one, but for those who don’t know Role Model and YouTuber Emma Chamberlain have been dating since 2020 and seem pretty adorable, although their relationship has been kept very private.

We have a sneaky feeling that the pair might make their red carpet debut together this year, with Emma’s image ageing up and Role Model set to be climbing the charts, they could be the new it couple, while still keeping their private lives away from the spotlight.

He was born in Maine 

Tucker is an East Coast baby, growing up in Maine, which is in the New England area of the United States, very close to the Canadian border and Boston to the south. We have seen Emma and Tucker spending a lot of time in New York, we all know Emma’s love for the East Coast and now we know Tucker has a connection there too! Emma has always said she’d love to move there, so we will have to watch this space!

How did he become famous?

Tucker released his first EP in 2017 and from there has continued to blow up online. He played his first Lollapalooza in 2019 and now has over three million monthly listeners on Spotify.  We’re sure it’s only up from here for this rising star.

Emma Chamberlain stars in his new music video

Yep! The couple finally have collabed on a project and it is Role model’s new music video for his song, neverletyougo. When we tell you we squealed at the ending!! In the song he talks about how she is the perfect girl for him and he’s in it for the long haul, it’s so sweet.

The cuteness of it all is too much, take a look here:

He’s performing at Coachella

What a cool experience! Role Model is in the Coachella lineup on the same day as Harry Styles! We’ve no doubt Emma will be there to support him looking as cool as always.

He started off rapping before he tried singing

Having been introduced to self-recording raps in college, Role Model stuck with it for a while and even put mixtapes out, but decided to go down the singing route instead.

He wanted to be a film director

He actually went to college thinking he was going to direct and produce films. It was there that he played around with rapping and recording music and fell in love with that industry instead! What a wonderful accident!

The late Mac Miller was a role model for him

After he put his first few songs out, Mac Miller’s manager shared his music on his story and it turns out Mac was a fan too. They flew him out to meet and Tucker says to this day he still thinks about what Mac would say when he’s creating new sounds. How sweet.
