BIA was born Bianca Landrau in 1991 in Medford, Massachusetts. She was hanging out with rappers at an early age, spending time in recording studios while secretly writing her own rhymes. By 2012, she had begun sharing music publicly, posting a video for her debut single, "High," that was made with help from a fan. She eventually met with Pharrell and signed to his RCA-affiliated imprint i am OTHER in 2014. The label released her debut mixtape, #CHOLASEASON, in May of that year, and she went on to collaborate with stars like T.I. and Jennifer Hudson, as well as appearing in the Oxygen reality show Sisterhood of Hip Hop. In 2016, she added vocals to the J Balvin single "Safari" and opened select dates in support of Ariana Grande, all while releasing new singles of her own.
A new mixtape, Nice Girls Finish Last: Cuidado, surfaced in 2018 and included some of her previously released singles as well as new tracks featuring guest spots from Kodak Black and Kali Uchis. The next year, BIA left RCA and released several songs independently before inking a new deal with Epic Records. In 2020, she released a few tracks with the label that had a slightly harder edge, "Free BIA (First Day Out)" and the lurching, hypnotic "Cover Girl." ~ Fred Thomas
