Bia

Often billed as Pharrell’s protégé, BIA (aka Bianca Landrau) is a 25 year-old Puerto Rican-Italian rapper who first emerged on our radar all the way back in 2014, when she dropped her debut mixtape after appearing on Oxygen’s Sisterhood of Hip-Hop. The Boston-born emcee has crowned herself the perico princess, and since joining Pharrell’s i am OTHER label roster she’s collaborated with the likes of J Balvin, T.I., Usher, Jennifer Hudson and Ariana Grande. Stay tuned for her upcoming project Trap Vogue, which will include two features with pop and Latin heavyweights respectively. In BIA’s words, it will be “feel good music: high energy with Latin elements mixed in.”
