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.

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.
