Role Model (a.k.a. Tucker Pillsbury) releases his brand-new single entitled “if jesus saves, she’s my type” along with a music video. The upbeat track debuted with Role Model featured on the cover of New Music Daily on Apple Music. It will also be included on his upcoming debut album, Rx. The album is an extremely dynamic body of work with an underlying message about the power of a woman, layered with elements of religion, sex, and love. Rx is due out on April 8th, just ahead of Role Model‘s performance at this year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, and is available for pre-save now. “if jesus saves, she’s my type” is also available now at all digital retail providers via Interscope Records.
Role Model says about the track, “As much as I love being alone, I think even the strongest people have a breaking point. I spent years completely alone and got to a point where I needed help, which later came in the form of a girl, who I fell in love with. This song is that stage of desperation that I felt could be compared to the way some people find God. When you’re on your knees just begging for something or someONE. It sets up the album perfectly.”

The music video, directed by Dylan Knight, is fun, playful, and theatrical. Tucker stars as a small town’s local pastor who is convinced he has found God in the shape of a beautiful girl. Role Model’s energy is magnetic as he preaches to the church when suddenly in walks a girl, like a metaphorical Jesus, wearing a short denim skirt and hoop earrings. The chemistry between the girl and Tucker builds as he tries to impress her by showing off his dance skills. They eventually break out into a choreographed routine and the congregation leaps to their feet to praise what seems like the second coming of Jesus. To Role Model, God is a woman.

About Role Model
Tucker Pillsbury assembles, disassembles, and reassembles different vibes, sounds, and emotions into Role Model. One moment, he’s crooning about his crush’s earrings over crunchy chords. The next, he’s spitting bars about staying home. Either way, the intimacy of his songwriting beckons connection. You’ll experience doubt, anxiety, infatuation, and even love right next to him. His story kicked into high gear back in 2017. Following the Soundcloud success of “Cocaine Babe” and “Girl In New York,” he earned the respect of late idol Mac Miller and Benny Blanco. Trading Maine for California, he made waves with the oh, how perfect EP in 2019, generating tens of millions of streams on “hello,” “notice me” [feat. BENEE], and “that’s just how it goes.” A year later, his momentum only increased with the follow-up our little angel EP. The single “blind” eclipsed 64 million Spotify streams, while coup de main hailed it as “must-listen.” The Line of Best Fit praised his “songs with tenderness and Gen Z apathy.” After gathering nearly 437 million streams and receiving acclaim from HYPEBEAST, DIY, Earmilk, and many more, he illuminates every side of himself on his most recent singles “forever&more” and “death wish.”
