Continuing an impressive run in 2020 with tens of millions of streams and widespread critical acclaim, platinum-certified Boston-born and Los Angeles-based rapper BIA unveils a new single and music video entitled “Skate” today.
She freezes the beat in its tracks with quotable lines such as, “Let ‘em hate, soak it up, let ‘em marinate,” and “I’m the coldest bitch I know. I’m still freezing in a mink.” The accompanying short visual directed by Jon Primo remains just as cold. BIA and a gang of ski-masked ladies armed-to-the-teeth menace with palpable intensity and runway-ready style. It might just be her iciest excursion yet.
The track arrives on the heels of “Same Hands” [feat. Lil Durk]. Not only did the recent single rack up 3 million Spotify streams with 1.2 million YouTube views on the music video, but it also received plugs from UPROXX, REVOLT, and more.
Earlier this year, BIA made waves and turned heads with the single “COVER GIRL” which was released in the midst of the pandemic. It’s already amassed over 8.5 million streams worldwide and 357K YouTube views on the quarantine music video. Meanwhile, Nylon included it on “Soundcheck: The 10 Best Music Releases of the Week” and wrote, “ Bia is cool, calm, and unbothered on the fiery “COVER GIRL”.”
