Igniting a bright, bold, and brilliant next chapter, platinum-certified Filipino-American artist, songwriter, creative and the “third most-followed creator on TikTok” Bella Poarch returns with a new single and music video entitled “Crush” with Lauv out today via Warner Records. Listen HERE and watch the music video below. It notably marks her first release of 2023 and first collaboration with multiplatinum phenomenon Lauv.
About the song, she commented, “‘Crush’” is this fun, brighter side of me that I’m excited to showcase. The song itself is light, cheeky, and it gives you the flirty feeling of butterflies in your stomach that you get when sparks begin to fly. It’s about being in the moment and indulging in the simple things like binging Love Island, or having an innocent crush without overthinking it (which I’m guilty of). Lauv is such an incredible artist and being able to work with him is such an honor. He’s one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and I LAUVed working with him hehe.”
Lauv added, “‘Crush’ is about that feeling when you’re into someone but don’t wanna cross the line cause it’s so fun just being slightly into them. Love singing with [Bella] and so happy ‘Crush’ is finally out!”
The single paves the way for a whole lot more to come from Bella Poarch soon.
What the Filipino-American pop provocateur has done in just two years since her 2021 emergence is nothing short of astounding. She went from a humble childhood on a small farm in the Philippines to serving in the U.S. Navy as a proud servicewoman responsible for helicopters and jets to unassumingly launching her TikTok in 2020.
