Determined to make a name for herself, the Boston-born Puerto Rican and Italian rapper/vocalist has been sculpting her own lane since her debut project #CHOLASEASON. Since its release, BIA has nabbed a Latin Grammy and a Latin BMI Music Award for her feature on Reggaeton King J. Balvin’s 2016 summer smash “Safari,” secured tours with hip hop royalty (Pusha-T) and pop’s elite (Ariana Grande), and even released a slew of singles that have gained her the respect of her peers and critics alike.
In 2016, the anthemic cut “Gucci Comin’ Home,” a tribute to trap god GUWOP, received much love and airplay on BET and Revolt. This was followed up by BIA’s next single, “Whip It,” which clipped over 3M streams across all digital platforms after the video debuted exclusively on World Star Hip Hop. In continuing to carve out a niche for herself, BIA landed a feature on Reggaeton King J. Balvin’s #1 Latin radio single “Safari.” She lays it down in her half native tongue with fluidity and finesse, while this added diversity separates her from the pack. The song is multi-platinum in several countries and helped carve the way for Spanglish songs to become a growing part of pop music.
This year BIA added to her rabidly growing fan base via live performances and the release of “Fungshway” and “Bad Side.” She took the stage both domestically and internationally as main support for friend and collaborator Ariana Grande. Red Bull Sound Select invited her to headline their March Artist on the Rise LA show and to be a part of their 30 Days in Chicago line-up later this year. BIA also shook the stages of SXSW and Monterey Mexico’s Hellowfest.
With new music on the horizon, BIA is unwavering in her mission to dominate the realms of hip hop, R&B, and Latin collectively and separately.
