Today, BIA continues her rise to superstardom with the release of her new single “London” featuring J. Cole. Announced earlier this week, the song is joined by an accompanying music video directed by London-based director Daps. The pair celebrates all things British with Instagram-ready scenes from the U.K. capital, shopping at luxurious stores and hosting a tea party.
2021 was an undoubtedly major year for BIA with Nicki Minaj hopping on her smash hit “Whole Lotta Money,” marking the first collaboration between the two rappers as well as her first RIAA-certified Platinum track as well. She also released her highly anticipated EP For Certain, which contained features from Lil Durk, Doe Boy, Lil Jon, and 42 Dugg. Earlier this year, the rapper kicked things off with a slew of features, appearing on Tommy Genesis’ “a woman is a god” remix and Kali’s “Eat It Up.”
J. Cole, on the other hand, is coming off the heels of Dreamville’s collaborative mixtape with DJ Drama titled D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape. The project, which is comprised of 15 tracks, contains features from Young Nudy, Sheck Wes, A$AP Ferg, and core members of his record label. Notably, the North Carolina rapper also appeared on YG’s “Scared Money” alongside Moneybagg Yo as well as Benny the Butcher’s “Johnny P’s Caddy” back in January.
