15 SEPTEMBER 2023 (TORONTO, ON)charlieonnafriday is ending the summer with a bang. The 20-year-old singer/songwriter, who has achieved several hundred million streams and views over the last few years, shares his latest single, “Undefeated” and is currently touring across the US and Canada with Tate McRae. Out now via Island Records, the anthemic new single is a pump-up song brought to life with booming production from Tyler Dopps. “Undefeated” is a song fit for arenas; it opens with a string arrangement leading into a powerful horn section that sets the stage for Charlie’s confident, catchy bars, “Never take no L, no / We stay undefeated.” Before the release, charlieonnafriday teased the song during recent performances on tour and it’s clear it’s a fan favourite already.


Channeling his past experiences on the field, charlieonnafriday wrote “Undefeated” with these very sentiments in mind: “Growing up playing football, I’ve discovered there’s no better feeling than finding a song that can lock you into that fired up mindset and make you feel like you’re on top of the world. My new song ‘Undefeated’ is an anthem made for moments like these and is the perfect hype song for any situation.”


“Undefeated” arrives on the heels of “I’m Not Crazy,” a song that cleverly plays off the iconic Matchbox Twenty hit “Unwell” (2003). In the accompanying music video, Charlie hosts a Project-X style rager that shows him working hard and playing even harder. Even the best parties eventually end, but as this one fades into the next morning, Charlie’s morale remains high as the “Undefeated” intro kicks in.


2023 has been a landmark year for charlieonnafriday. His artistic output across a string of singles, from “That’s What I Get” to “Same Friends (ft. Lil Tjay)” to “I’m Not Crazy” and now with “Undefeated,” has been stronger than ever. Charlie has also spent much of the year bringing his vibrant youthful energy on the road in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Beginning with his ONNAFRIDAY College Tour, followed by supporting Jessie Murph across North America, and eventually opening for his hometown hero Macklemore in Europe, Charlie has levelled up each step of the way. Now he’s back on tour again - this time with Tate McRae. The Are We Flying Tour kicked off 10 days ago in Chicago, and after a sold-out show last night in Philadelphia, Charlie and Tate are heading up to House of Blues Boston. Full tour routing below.

Just a few years ago in his hometown of Seattle, Charlie Finch began recording songs in his friend’s basement after football practice. “From the very jump, it always revolved around doing it for fun,” he recalls. “We genuinely loved making songs. It was never about going viral or making fans—it was about making a song about what we did the other night and now having music attached to that moment.” Those tracks became Charlie’s yearbook. He saw himself as a high school kid who wanted to savour the moment. With over 100 million streams, “After Hours” focused on that idea. “That song gives off the vibe that we’re here; we don’t want this night to ever end." Through the pandemic, Charlie recorded songs at home. It documented his life and put unforgettable moments into music. Millions on TikTok and other social platforms bonded with charlieonnafriday—a persona built around fun, adventure, and the best feelings in life.


After school, Charlie moved away to L.A. “I’ve built a much better version of the closet studio,” he says—pointing to members of his circle for engineering and trusted input. “We still record most of these songs at home. That’s how it’s always been.” Maintaining the formula was vital to Charlie, even if they traded Seattle showers for Cali sunshine. Afternoons are spent playing hoops, lounging in the pool, and working out. As they mature, that kinship in Charlie’s circle is the thematic guide to his latest single, “Same Friends,” featuring Lil Tjay. “It’s a hip hop song, and I wanted an artist that me and friends have always loved,” Charlie shares. The guys knew Tjay would fit in their gatherings, which the song’s music video proves. There is depth too. Regarding fame, Charlie says, “None of this matters if I forget who I am and I lose my friends.”


Those friends are characters in the bigger charlieonnafriday story. “You can go back to my first music video on the road, and the two kids in that Honda CRV driving across the country on a road trip are the same kids shooting a music video with Lil Tjay. It’s all so real, and you can see it right there,” he asserts. The adventure is authentic in real-time. It’s why YouTube shorts, vlogs, and Instagram posts are vital accents to the music. That whimsicality plays into Charlie’s diverse range of styles and influences. “Some days I wake up, and maybe a little bit more of the love for Country comes out,” he says, pointing to a recent Nashville stop. “Maybe I’ll find a Young Thug-type beat and make a straight-up rap song. It always comes down to me making what I like and feel like making at that time.”


charlieonnafriday continues to maximize his moment. He has a set vision for his music, brand, and message. “You only have so long to live here. Have fun, do it right; every day is a Friday."
