BIA has finally unveiled her highly anticipated new project For Certain today (Dec 11), executive produced by Aziz the Shake and Lil Rich. The freshly released EP opens up with a bang, as the first thing you hear after pressing play are Lil Jon’s iconic vocals blaring, thanks to the genius use of the “Bia Bia” sample from the 2000’s We Still Crunk! project by Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz. The new EP is equipped with eight tracks and includes guest features from Doe Boy, 42 Dugg, Lil Durk, and Lil Jon.
For Certain was prepped by her firey singles “Same Hands” featuring Lil Durk and “Skate,” which arrived in September and November, respectively. 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.
