With an authoritative voice that leaps out of speakers, rising rapper Beanz has bars for days. Allowing herself to introduce herself, Beanz shares “Trending Topic,” her new single. Blessed with a horn section that speaks to Beanz’ Latina heritage, “Trending Topic” is a boisterous banger, offering the perfect canvas for Beanz to talk her smack. Rapping with an audible sneer, Beanz spends the duration of “Trending Topic” backing up her bonafides and taking swipes at those who try to fake it to make it: “These b*tches week, no stamina/I stunt seven days a week, no calendar/I be trill, you know I keeps it thorough/I got the whole world shouting “who’s that girl?”
In the video, Beanz gathers a crew in city backstreets, before hopping on the front of an ATV for some nighttime riding. “Trending Topic” is Beanz first new single since September 2020’s “Pressure,” which has over 450k streams on Spotify alone.
Born and raised in Reading, Pennsylvania, a mid-sized city located between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, Beanz started on her artistic path at the age of 12, when she started writing poetry to escape her household struggles. As she grew older, her poems turned into rap songs, and she developed a reputation as the best rapper in her city. Beanz brought her artistry to a larger audience when she joined the cast of Rhythm & Flow, Netflix’s first-ever reality competition show. Though she didn’t win, Beanz became a fan favorite, winning the affections of many with her lyricism and take-no-prisoners attitude. Since Rhythm & Flow, Beanz has been active, releasing successful singles like “Can’t Call It” (over 1 million streams across platforms) and collaborating with Dizzy Wright for “Sick Of Complaining.”
Ready to take her game to the next level in 2021, the artist of Puerto Rican descent is preparing a deluge of new music, including a forthcoming project. Haters take note: there’s no stopping Beanz season.
