Boston-born and Los Angeles-based rapper BIA has unveiled another new single and music video titled “Skate”. In the accompanying visual directed by Jon Primo, BIA and a gang of ski-masked and armed ladies head out on a mission that’ll leave viewers on their toes. Within the frosty video, the platinum-certified artist glides over the beat:
I’m a maniac, two braids to the back, where his CC at? Left his ass on read for what he said, bitch I ain’t call him back. If I want it then, chirp my bitches and we andale. Bitch I’m always active, never hidin’, never ever lackin’. Double C my tag, watch my back ‘cause n****s in my grass. People gettin’ bolder, wearin’ faces and they changin’ masks. I’m not used to askin’, if I need it, I’m gon’ make it happen. Put my trust in no one ‘cause their loyalty ain’t really matchin’.
The track arrives on the heels of “Same Hands” featuring Lil Durk. Earlier this year, BIA made waves and released her two singles “Cover Girl” and “Free BIA (First Day Out),” the latter track being an expression of her label frustrations she has dealt with. In a recent interview with REVOLT, BIA, who was previously with RCA Records and is currently signed to Epic Records, went into detail about what it’s like to sign leave one record label and eventually sign with another and why:
It’s crazy because every meeting I went to, they knew I was a worried dog. I’m like, “I don’t know how I feel about this.” I’m big off energy and vibes, and Sylvia is an incredible woman. I want to be around women. I want to be around people who understand me and aren’t trying to change me, but want to help me elevate and be the best me. I have a really close friend who’s actually my A&R, all of those things they play a part. These are people who start to know you for you, not just you as an artist.
