Yebba Premieres New Song “Louie Bag” featuring Smino on BBC Radio 1
- American singer-songwriter Yebba premiered a new song “Louie Bag” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Annie Mac.
This time, she teamed up with St. Louis rapper Smino on the track.
The song will appear on her upcoming debut album “Dawn”, which is set to be released September 10, 2021.
It was co-written by Yebba, Smino, Q-Tip, and James Francies and produced by Yebba and Mark Ronson.
Yebba said of the song, “Someone said to me, 'You have to make sure this is not going to make you bitter. Bitterness will rob you.' And at the time I started that song I was in Resentment City, with all these labels trying to sign me and people pressuring me, telling me, 'you're never going to see a deal like this again,' when I just wasn't ready. So I said to them, 'If you ever tell me I'm going to miss my chance or I'm going to run out of time, I will pack my bags and go back to Arkansas and I'll quit singing. Because if I say I'm not ready because my mom just killed herself, then I'm not fucking ready. The answer is no.' I don't even own a Louis bag, but when I got my first check from publishing I wrote that line: 'Put it in my Louis bag, don't let it overflow.' It's for any label that tried to sign me – for all those men talking to me like that. It's me talking about all the confusion and the disarray I was feeling at the time, and delivering that right to their doorstep. I just sent those bad vibes right back to those motherfuckers.”
