The track showcases Rodriguez’s sugary vocals juxtaposed with sharp lyrics, gritty percussion and an edgier sound than her past releases. Meanwhile Tate – who linked up with Tkay Maidza for ‘Kim’ earlier this year – also injects her own flavour into the pop tune.
A dark music video for the song sees a gothic Rodriguez devour an array of gold chains and other necklaces. Tate then appears as a surgeon, removing them from Rodriguez’s stomach. Watch it below:
‘Billion Dollar Bitch’ marks Rodriguez’s fourth single since she made her 2019 debut with ‘Emotion’, scoring her a signing to Michael Chugg’s City Pop Records. She followed up with ‘Psycho’ a year later, before releasing ‘Beautiful & Bittersweet’ in late 2020, produced by Lime Cordiale‘s producer, Dave Hammer.
She spoke about her transition from TikTok fame to a music career while on the show, saying “I went down the comedy road to grab people’s attention, and then was like ‘y’all I can sing!’ to slowly insert myself into the music industry”.
“It just happened. I’m now more of a musician than I am a TikTok person.”
