Platinum-certified Boston-born and Los Angeles-based rapper BIA continues to set the summer on fire as she reups her viral smash “Whole Lotta Money” by releasing a new Remix featuring the Multi-Platinum Queen of Hip-Hop Nicki Minaj today.

The original “Whole Lotta Money” has already amassed over 70 million worldwide streams which include 4.9 million views on the official music video. It peaked at #12 on the Spotify Viral 50 Chart and #18 on Global Viral Spotify Charts and ignited Tik Tok where mega-popular celebrities from Cardi B and Lizzo to Kendall Jenner, Chelsea Handler, and Shay Mitchell have produced content featuring the song.
“Whole Lotta Money” is available on BIA’s For Certain EP, which recently returned to the Top 20 of the Billboard Heatseekers Album Charts. Critical acclaim for BIA include recent praise from SPIN cementing her as “the most sonically uninhibited she has ever been” while Refinery29 Unbothered also christened her as “a force to be reckoned with.” BIA recently broke down the official lyrics and meaning behind “Whole Lotta Money” for Genius’ Verified series and also performed it live for UPROXX Sessions who noted “If you’ve been on TikTok at any point in the last two months, the odds are extremely high you’ve heard BIA’s “Whole Lotta Money” at least once — I’d ballpark it at around 96%.”

Platinum Recording Artist BIA has gradually been travelling along her own lane within music, a lane that only she can occupy. Raised in Boston, the rap femme fatale is known for music that possesses both biting wit and a boldly authentic swag. It comes, undoubtedly, from BIA’s years traveling through the Boston rap scene, later moving over to Miami, Los Angeles, and then taking over the world. With every mixtape, collaboration, and guest appearance, BIA has only amplified her reach. So much so, that she made the most in a pandemic, dominating 2020 with a fresh new perspective. She inked a deal with Epic Records, dropped the hard-hitting “Free BIA (1st Day Out)” and the intoxicating “COVERGIRL”, as well as dove further into the fashion world with a feature in Good American’s Spring 2020 campaign and Missguided x Sean John Fall 2020 capsule collection.
By the close of 2020, she dropped her For Certain EP, armed with the hit single “Whole Lotta Money”—a song with a central message that unlimited currency can be both mental and physical. The EP reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Charts, with the aforementioned single become a sleeper hit that would bring her uncharted success into 2021. “Whole Lotta Money” became an undeniable force, due in part to its continuous viral success on TikTok. Celebs from Lizzo and Cardi B to Chelsea Handler, Shay Mitchell, and Kendall Jenner have all created TikTok content soundtracked by “Whole Lotta Money.” The track has jumped right off the platform and into streaming stardom, marking its territory in the Spotify Viral 50 Chart as well as the Global Spotify Charts. It only keeps on growing. In addition, BIA’s reimagined version of her hit song “Skate” will be featured in the 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs tune-in promos on NHLNetwork, NBC and NBCSN in the U.S., Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada, and across the NHL’s social and digital platforms (including TikTok).
