DEBUT MIXTAPE BUBBLEGUM SET TO RELEASE JANUARY 20
SOLD-OUT SHOWS IN LONDON AND DUBLIN NEXT MONTH
Biig Piig has premiered her brand new single “This Is What They Meant”, which received its first play as Radio 1’s Hottest Record. The song arrives alongside the announcement of Biig Piig’s debut mixtape, Bubblegum: due for release on January 20, 2023 via Columbia Records.
Soulful and atmospheric, “This Is What They Meant” finds Biig Piig confessing: “This is what they meant when they said / that I could be selfish / I couldn’t help it.” It’s a hypnotizing, but reflective banger that Biig Piig describes as “experiencing the city through someone else’s eyes, and wanting to stay in that moment regardless of the consequences.”
Seizing the moment – whatever the highs or lows may bring – has long been Biig Piig’s superpower. On her debut mixtape Bubblegum, Biig Piig brings together such fleeting moments into a brand new chapter of her incredible story to date. Surreal and colorful, yet bitingly honest, the project’s first offering arrived in the form of recent track “Kerosene.”Twisting Biig Piig’s own spin on dance music with easter-egg imagery surrounding the key places in her life, “Kerosene” is a “hot girl summer” anthem of lust and release, laying the foundation for the full mixtape to come.
Off the heels of select US shows in support of Big Wild including dates in New York and Los Angeles, Biig Piig will play sold out headline shows in London and Dublin next month. The rising star will preview songs from her forthcoming project as well as perform previously released fan favorites such as “Feels Right” and “Oh No.” See full routing below.
Biig Piig is one of modern pop’s genuine one-offs, a fearless artist who has come of age across a period of experimentation and self-evaluation. From the trilogy of DIY EPs she dropped as a teenager to her longstanding work with traiblazing crew NiNE8 Collective, Biig Piig has moved between genres and even continents – she now lives between London and Los Angeles – with songs that speak effortlessly of youth culture. Along the way, Biig Piig has grown a vast global audience for her instantly-identifiable, bilingual voice: with over 200 million streams, and wider co-signs ranging from Billie Eilish and Virgil Abloh to Lil Nas X, and tours alongside the likes of Glass Animals and Jungle. Like much of her hugely eclectic – but remarkably consistent – catalogue to date, there is a more introspective side to Biig Piig than may meet the eye: beneath its disco hedonism, the lyrical candour of ‘This Is What They Meant’ suggests someone who has taken the time to work out who she is, what she wants, but as ever with Biig Piig, leaves you questioning where she may head next.
Coming into her own as an artist and young woman, watch out for more from Biig Piig and Bubblegum to follow soon.
