It’s a one verse bilingual banger that’s more of a teaser of what’s to come in the near future than a record with legs, but it’s well worth your time nonetheless. The Karmaloop TV-produced video is dark and cinematic, heavily reliant on portraits of the rising star and flashy effects spliced throughout. “La Tirana” (or “The Tyrant”) is bold and braggadocious, BIA rhyming aggressively over the Crystal Caines production and reminding listeners that she’s “cut from a different cloth, fabricated bitches looking like who make that shit?” and re-asserting herself as the self-proclaimed Perico Princess.
This comes just a week after BIA announced that she’ll be part of the cast of T.I.’s new OXYGEN series “Sisterhood Of Hip-Hop,” so needless to say, it’s been a good month for Pharrell’s newest signee. Watch “La Tirana” above, and stay tuned for more.
