Samuel Wellings, also known as Kim Dracula, was born on November 23, 1997, in Hobart, Tasmania. Dracula first became famous in November 2020, with the release of a metal cover of Lady Gaga’s song ‘Paparazzi’ on TikTok. The cover was also released on Spotify in December of that same year. Dracula’s song gained viral popularity within a matter of months, acquiring six million views on YouTube, and 13 million plays on Spotify. It was used in over 60,000 TikTok videos before the end of 2020. This led Dracula to become the fourth-most followed Australian TikTok music artist of 2020, bested only by the likes of Sia, Iggy Azalea, and Mia Rodriguez. After receiving one million plays on Spotify, Dracula released a celebratory video on TikTok with the caption “This is only the beginning.” In 2021, Dracula’s ‘Paparazzi’ entered Spotify’s Global Viral 50 chart and it reached the number four spot. In the same year, they opened at number 47 on the Billboard Emerging Artists chart, and ‘Paparazzi’ once again spiked in popularity, entering the Hot Rock & Alternative Songs chart at number 31.

Dracula has since become the second most followed Australian TikTok personality with 13.4 million views on TikTok, 33 million views on YouTube, and 55 million listens on Spotify of their song ‘Paparazzi’ alone.
