Beanz braggadocious style of rapping directed at her haters, shows off her natural ability to just rap. With no melodies or theatrics, she goes bar for bar against each and every one of her competitors.
Former Rhythm + Flow contestant, Beanz, drops bars in her newest video and latest single, “Trending Topic.” The video showcases Beanz rapping ability while she rides ATVs and poses for photoshoots. With extreme confidence in her lyrics, she’s proving herself to be that girl.
Hailing from Pennsylvania, Beanz earned her first major recognition on the aforementioned Netflix reality series Rhythm + Flow, in 2019. Since then, she has released a variety of singles in 2020, including standouts “Can’t Call It” and “Pressure.” With “Pressure” receiving 450K streams solely on Spotify, she has only been trending upward.
Regal horns fill up the first few seconds of “Trending Topic” as if to announce that a queen is entering. Followed by upbeat drums, Beanz comes in with her usual braggadocious style of rapping. Directed at her haters, she shows off her natural ability to just rap. With no melodies or theatrics, she goes bar for bar against each and every one of her competitors. She raps in the second verse,
“Cause life is a trip, you best be ready if you riding / Don’t nobody want ya mans sis, you ain’t gotta hide him / Cause I’m a solid bitch / So ain’t no questioning my character / Ya life behind the cameras / Fake shit, amateur.“
The track is reminiscent of “Who’s That Girl?” by Eve, who also grew up in Pennsylvania. Beanz has never stated publicly that Eve is an inspiration of hers. But the song clearly is a tribute. Or at least an ode to a great female rapper that came before her. Bursting with talent and repping PA, the sky’s the limit for Beanz.
