Bella Thorne’s Rap Album Is Called ‘What Do You See Now’
A couple of weeks ago, Bella Thorne blessed New Music Friday with not one, but two rap songs. And there’s more to come. The 20-year-old dropped by Beats 1 on Apple Music to chat with Travis Mills about her debut album — and brought along producer Irv Gotti. He explains that the title, What Do You See Now, comes from an 18-minute documentary she made with Vogue. “It’s just Bella sitting there, and she says, ‘I know you’re all out there judging me. I know you are. Just for one second, if you could, just close your eyes. Okay, now open them. What do you see now?’”
“I get goosebumps when I think of it,” the rap mogul continues. “So I said, ‘Yo, that’s the name of the album, because I think people think of you in a certain way, and this album is so dope and has so many different vibes and real shit on it. It’s like, what do you see now?’ And I just love that title.” How did they get connected? “So on Famous In Love, there’s a character, Jordan, played with Keith Powers, and Keith knows Irv,” Bella explains. “That is how we met.”
“Irv was talking to me about this episode, then I was like, ‘Hey, yo, I’m just going to like, play some music,’ and then came out with the heaters. I was very smart, because I have a very different genre of music, that’s for sure, and I played Irv the stuff I know Irv would like.” Get a taste for what’s to come by checking out the album’s lead single, “Bitch I’m Bella Thorne” below.
