Discrimination has negatively impacted black women in professional settings for many years. Whether it was sexual harassment or repressed advancement opportunities, black women have always paid the ultimate price of not being taken seriously or being ignored completely. Despite being underrepresented in a vast array of occupations, black women have remained capable of executing any tasks thrown their way. No one comprehends these issues more than Bella Blaq. As a result, the Atlanta-based bombshell aims to shed light on racism and sexism in the entertainment industry with her new single, “Hands On Me”.
Backed by its pulsating trap beat, the Epikh Pro produced single is Bella’s infinite response to the obstacles she has faced within the entertainment industry. As she raps, “Life is crazy, we all got battles we fighting daily, you can’t let it stop you though”, Bella’s smooth delivery stresses the importance of not backing down from any difficulties. The single’s cover art is another showstopper, as it features multiple hands covering Bella’s nude body. The gesture represents her bold statement that she does music her own way, despite any adversity that intends to derail her.
Rapping since the tender age of 14, Bella’s talent has led to her opening for hip hop heavyweights such as 2 Chainz, Young Dro and Future. Armed with overall star appeal, Bella Blaq has all of the makings of hip hop’s next big thing. What’s Bella cooking up next? Find out by visiting her social media platforms below:
