As a young and expressive woman in the music industry, Bhad Bhabie has faced her fair share of slander. Over the last few months, alleged false information has spread, claiming she’s troubled and loud. And this is why she’s begun making a conscious effort to share her authentic self and create a niche that her fans would appreciate. Her latest single, Miss Understood, was conceived to help set the record straight. It’s meant to debunk all of the false impressions people may have about her. This track will give people a glance into her life and her story. “I wish that people didn’t think I am crazy and loud or all the other things people call me. Over the past few years, I have grown so much and I’ve worked hard to show people the real me. I want to show how much I have matured and grown. I am dedicated to improving myself and I will work daily to make myself better,” She reveals.   Aside from her single, Bhad Bhabie has proved to be a powerhouse in the music industry. With collaborations from artists such Megan Thee Stallion, Ty Dolla $ign, YG, Charli XCX, and Clean Bandit, there is only one path for her, and that’s forward. When asked who she envisions collaborating with, Bhad Bhabie revealed that she’s always wanted to work with Young Thug and hopes to get the chance someday. “Young Thug is my favourite artist and I have a couple of songs that I want him to write a verse on, but I get scared to ask and reach out sometimes. I hope to get in the studio with him someday and make hit singles,” she says. One thing to note is that talent and creativity will only get you so far in the music industry. Bhad Bhabie fully understands this and is ready to incorporate various elements into her music to ensure her growth. She is currently working on a top-secret project that she hopes to talk more About in the future. “I don’t want to rush anything but hopefully this year, I will reveal a complete project for my fans. I have been in the studio a lot recently and I want my next project to be top tier,” Bhad Bhabie says. You released your first single at 15. Looking back over the past few years, what’s the number one thing you’ve learned about being an artist? Over the past few years, I’ve learned that you can’t let others control your creative freedom. A lot of my new music that I’m releasing now is more of me rather than someone else’s image they wanted to create of me. What’s a common misconception about you that you wish people thought differently about? I wish that people didn’t think that I’m crazy and loud and all the other things people call me. I’ve grown so much over the past few years, and I’ve worked really hard to show people the real me and how much I’ve matured and grown. I’m still working every day to better myself. Tell me about your latest single ‘Miss Understand’ and the message behind this track. Miss Understood is about how so many people think I’m troubled, but people don’t know my story and the song gives a lil taste of my truth. When you were only 13, you were forced into the spotlight with the Dr. Phil Show. In what way has that experience shaped you? With the way that situation turned out, I’m proud of myself for being able to create a career and living for myself and family. I could have just been a meme and forgotten about forever. How do you get into a creative headspace when in the studio? I like to have people i love around me like my boyfriend and a whole bunch of dope engineers and producers that help me create some sick music. As long as I’m able to order some food and can take a nap on the couch, I’ll stay there all day. You’ve collaborated with some incredible artists Megan Thee Stallion, Ty Dolla $ign, YG, Charli XCX, Clean Bandit and more. Who are some artists you’d love to collab with for the next album? For sure Young Thug. He’s my favorite artist and i have a couple songs I want him to write a verse on, but I get scared to ask sometimes. Speaking of album, when do we expect a new body or work? I don’t want to rush anything but hopefully this year. I’ve been in the studio a lot recently and I want to make my next project top tier. What’s next for you? So much more music is dropping this year. I have been doing so many photo shoots recently and its been really fun to get to dressed up in all these cool outfits. The definition of Contrast is ‘to be strikingly different.’ What makes you strikingly different? I am myself and I always speak my truth. I don’t stray away from letting people know me. I’m a cool, real ass bitch.
