How many recessed lights can I add

I currently have a fixture in the center of my bedroom ceiling. I want to add 4 recessed lights (1 in each corner of the bedroom). I plan to run wire from the current fixture to 1 new recessed light fixture and then from that light fixture to then next one and so on. I want to know if it's ok to add 4 lights to the circuit. It's a 15 amp circuit.

Also, the other side of the ceiling is my attic. Is there any special type of can or wiring that I need to use.

Thanks for any help

Adding 4 lights to an existing 15 amp circuit shouldn't pose a problem unless the circuit is already overloaded. Do you know what else is on that circuit? If there is an attic above building codes in many areas now require the use of Air Tight approved recessed cans.
