New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Bea Miller, along with the Grammy-nominated artist 6lack, have shared their infectious new single, "it's not u it's me," out today via Hollywood Records/Universal Music. Idolator predicted the empowering track, "promises to be something of a reinvention," and is the first in a series of bold new songs Bea will be releasing this year with additional notable collaborators to be announced. This new music marks the evolution of the "punchy and self-possessed" (The Fader) singer, displaying her mature artistic growth and authenticity. In support of the new single and others to follow, Bea will embark on her first-ever headlining tour; the "nice to meet u tour," kicks off April 23 (complete itinerary below).
"it's not u it's me," was co-written by 6lack, Justin Tranter and Mary Weitz, and produced by Mike Sabath (Liam Payne, J Balvin, French Montana). Tranter has written for such notable artists as Gwen Stefani, Kelly
Clarkson, Fall Out Boy
and more and is a significant creative partner with Bea on this new musical chapter. The new single oozes self-confidence, with empowering lyrics laced over an irresistible dance hook.
Bea comments, "I think sometimes it's easy to lose yourself in other people; to do things for, and with them that don't represent who you are. There will always need to be compromise but this song is about crossing the line between helping someone else, and hurting yourself, and recognizing that when you can't be who you're supposed to be around a specific person, it's time to prioritize yourself."
At the young of age 20, Miller has achieved impressive milestones, including worldwide streams in excess of over one billion. Paper Magazine included her in their "Predictions: 100 People Taking Over 2019," and also named her one of "100 Women Revolutionizing Pop." In addition to her own previous releases including aurora (2018), her best-selling 2015 debut, Not An Apology, and three EPs (2017), she was most recently featured on NOTD's dance hit, "I WANNA KNOW," which amassed over 100 million global streams on Spotify, and nearly 15 million video views.
