We always say it best with our music. So many songs still need to be written. So many melodies need to be shared. So many ideas on how to live and speak the truth. So many lessons learned. We hope the songs that we write inspire you and make you want to write your own song. You are the one who knows what you want to say.

LOS ANGELES — For many multiracial Latinas and Latinos throughout the United States, negotiating seemingly different racial worlds often poses unique challenges. The constant feeling of not fully belonging to a particular racial and ethnic group can often create confusion and sometimes isolation. But in an increasingly digitally connected age, some have found support in social media networks like Facebook and Instagram, while others have used art and music to make sense of a world that consistently forces multiracial people to “pick” sides. She was less enthusiastic to talk about her relationship, though. While she doesn't shy away from posting about her partner (they're grid official) the specifics, like his name, are kept under wraps. "This is one of those times where I keep things to myself," she says, not straying from her tender tone. "Because of social media, so many artists live so much of their lives on Snap and on their Instagram Story and I'm just not that artist. I give so much in my music. If you listen to my music, you'll know a lot of what's going on. But I also feel like you've got to keep some things for yourself." She prefers to exude mystique. "There has to be some type of mystery," she says. "People don't have to know everything that's going on in every artist's life."

I actually really wanted everything to go back to this, because I feel like music has to thrive in this space, you know? You need to be able to go out and do shows. People need to be able to hear the music live and you’ve got to be able to touch the fans, meet them. It’s a big part of what I’m doing. When I released “COVER GIRL,” we were in a pandemic and it was one of my favorite songs I’ve ever put out. I always said if we were outside when I released “COVER GIRL,” so many people would have been able to hear it in a fresh space. It would’ve been so different. Things like that affect records a lot sometimes, and it’s so important to be able to do what we’re doing right now. (Source: hypebae.com)

Bia

rapper, singer, songwriter, and model who debuted on the Oxygen reality television show Sisterhood of Hip Hop. She signed to Pharrell's I Am Other record label, in partnership with RCA Records in 2014. Her first EP, Nice Girls Finish Last: Cuidado, was released in 2018. She is best recognized for featuring on the 2016 single "Safari" by J Balvin and "Best on Earth" by Russ in 2019. In early 2020, Bia signed a new record deal with Epic Records, releasing her second EP, For Certain, on December 11, 2020. The EP spawned the single "Whole Lotta Money", which later was released as a remix featuring Nicki Minaj and reached the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. Following viral success on the social media platform TikTok, the song was serviced to Rhythmic radio on May 18, 2021, becoming the fifth single from the EP. A remix featuring Nicki Minaj was released on July 9, 2021 and caused the song to reach a peak of number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Bia's highest charting song. On September 24, she released the single "Besito" featuring G Herbo. Alongside the release, Bia announced the deluxe edition of For Certain which will be released on October 22, 2021.

In the past 12 months BIA achieved a feat that had been brewing for nearly seven years: coveted cosigns, award nominations, and platinum plaques. Having spent time on the impressive rosters of Pharrell's I Am Other imprint and now Epic Records, she's evolved with the industry's ever-changing ebbs and flows. But now, the shapeshifting emcee is at a new peak. She spent almost the entirety of her twenties working to penetrate rap's highest ranks and now, at 30, she's cashing in thanks to the sophomore EP that she dropped last December, For Certain. Although, her 2021 trajectory can mostly be attributed to the project's lead single. Considering the fact that it's still everywhere, it's easy to overlook the fact that the track has been out since the end of last year. (Source: coveteur.com)
