Atlanta’s Bali Baby first emerged in 2016 when her “Dip Dip Freestyle” went viral. Since then, Bali has amassed a loyal online following while also reinventing herself with every project – from the r&b tinged Bubbles Bali to her rap moment on Brazy Bali to featuring on Trippie Redd’s melodic ballad “Woah Woah Woah.” Through her transformations, Bali Baby constantly reveals a prowess at delivering hooks for days – on last year’s standout single “IGGADY,” Bali proclaims, “I cut that bitch head off and walk away giggling.”
For her forthcoming debut full length, Baylor Swift, Bali Baby now shifts her focus from rap to pop -spinning tracks twisted around hybrid autotune to showcase her warped lyricisms through a sheen of venomous pop. Bali has carved out her own identity, meshing quirky and menacing alter egos together into a medley of trap, rock and pop.
Through what can feel like a constant onslaught of new talent striving for recognition, Bali Baby’s ability to cultivate a persona that extends beyond the music to a full celebration of artistic self expression truly stands out. With a mood board that scans equal parts horror and calculated nod to pop culture, taking cues from no one but herself, Bali Baby is poised to push the envelope more than ever in 2018.
