ALMA’s Debut LP Takes Shape With Fiery “Bad News Baby”
ALMA has really come into her own in 2019. Finland’s greatest export helped shape the sound of pop as both a songwriter (she penned Miley Cyrus’ “Mother’s Daughter” and “Slide Away”) and artist. After releasing a couple of EPs and a mixtape, the 23-year-old is finally focussing on her debut LP. And it’s coming together nicely with juicy cuts like “Worst Behaviour” and “Have U Seen Her?” She now mixes it up by rolling out a punk-inspired pop experiment called “Bad News Baby.”
“Do what you want but load the gun, I know you’ll come again,” ALMA coos at the beginning of the song. “To get my love, my heroin — do what you do and I’ll pray for you.” She then pulls the trigger on the hook-filled chorus. “I’m a bad news baby, you can hear me on the radio,” the singer/songwriter chants. “Bad news baby, you gon’ see me everywhere you go.” What’s it all about? “Bad News Baby is my alter ego who can do anything and is unbreakable,” ALMA explains in the press release. “She is fearless, she is anxiety free, she doesn’t care what you think of her.”
