“BWA” arrives with a cinematic new video, directed by Renell Medrano. Set on Harlem’s West Side, the video finds Antha and her crew taking care of business, crossing town to confront, and shut down, a group of haters. The kinetic new clip follows up “Real B*tches,” Antha’s thrilling debut single, which arrived with a video featuring a cameo from A$AP Ferg.
“I wrote this song because ‘women with attitudes’ is typically looked at as a bad thing, and I want the girls that hear this to embrace their feminine attitude unapologetically,” says Antha Pantha. “Attitude should represent confidence and swag, not just a stank face.”
