Bia is Back with 16: Just prior to her appearance at Rolling Loud LA, Boston-born and Los Angeles-based artist Bia released new single “16.”

An autobiographical flex, the song takes us from Bia’s harder times to new recent success. “Take me back to when I lost my job, I told ’em, Fuck you,” she raps — a modern twist on “take this job and shove it.”

“I played the Hollywood Bowl and I brought the label with me,” she spits later, a reminder of just how far she’s come.

According to the press release, “Produced by Aziz The Shake and Tim Nihan, It might just be her most emotionally charged anthem yet. Immediately, she declares, ‘I came from a place where there’s nobody to look up to.’ She recalls her come up out of Boston without holding back, ‘I left mama house. I ain’t have nowhere to run to.’ Ultimately, she cuts deeper than ever on ‘SIXTEEN.'”

“Last weekend, our favorite ‘cover girl for certain’ BIA performed at the Phililp Plein FW 223 fashion show in Milan and just the week before BIA also co-headlined the AT&T NBA All-Star Pregame Performance with The Kid LAROI, delivering a showstopping set. She also exclusively spoke to People about her love for the Boston Celtics, and the outlet assured, ‘her fans will be excited to know that the wait for BIA’s highly-anticipated album is almost over.'”
