After a short break from dropping new music, Bia aka Perico Princess aka Bianca Landrau storms back with two new tracks, released through Pharrell’s i am Other imprint with RCA. For the trap-banger “Badside,” Bia linked with producer Cardo, and for “Fungshway,” the Boston-born rapper handled the production.
Now touring in the United Kingdom with Ariana Grande, Bia recently spoke with VladTV about the challenges of performing trap music, a genre dominated by men, and overcoming a stigma that dictates that attractive women not use a gutter vocabulary.
She also discussed working with reggaetone artist J.Balvin and Pharrell on the mega-hit single “Safari,” and how it opened her up to recording more Latin-flavored music. “Me doing the Latin music inspired me to do more,” said Bia, “I want to create something that hasn’t been done before.”
Check out both singles (with art by Amber Park) plus her VladTV interview below.
