BIA releases the international deluxe edition of her latest EP, REALLY HER. The EP boasts 7 brand new tracks that feature international acts such as Sfera Ebbasta (Italy), Giggs (UK), Tion Wayne (UK) and Luciano (Germany).
The standard edition of the Really Her EP released in July and finds BIA collaborating with a multi-generational slate of Hip Hop legends, from J. Cole and Swizz Beatz to Busta Rhymes and Timbaland, a testament to the reputation she’s built as an artist in the last few years. BIA, who raps on her Swizz Beatz collab, “Classy,” that she’s an “outstanding, international icon,” didn’t stop there. Despite the “EP” designation, she expands Really Her to 16 tracks that express the full range of her artistry and further confirm her versatility as a collaborator.
On a new version of “London,” which has amassed over 24 million YouTube views, she welcomes legendary U.K. rapper Giggs as a collaborator. For “Milano,” BIA collaborates with Italian star and rapper Sfera Ebbasta on a drill-adjacent record that also features stateside drill star Fivio Foreign. Elsewhere on the project, BIA infuses elements of U.K. grime beside Pa Salieu and genre-blending Nigerian artist ODUMODUBLVCK, and delivers a high-octane ode to “Dubai” with UK drill veteran Tion Wayne—all records that feel right at home beside much of her catalog. German-based drill artist Luciano, who scored a no. 1 hit on the German charts with BIA in 2022 (“Bamba”), delivers a boisterous chorus on “Lifeline,” another example of their proven chemistry. Though she pushes her creative bounds, BIA continues to find ways to stay true to her musical self-center and shine in each lane she occupies. “This project is a vital part of my career because it has pieces of where I came from, where I am now and hints of my new direction as an artist” says BIA.
