‘Sad Bitch Bad Bitch’ marks the highly anticipated return of Iyla, who’s last release, 2020’s critically acclaimed 7-track EP OTHER WAYS TO VENT featured highlights including ‘Strings’ which MTV hailed as a “standout” cut from the EP, lauding its “skittering, schizophrenic production,” over which “she both floats with airy consideration and dives into rage-by-the-syllable sass,” ‘Tattoo Tears,’ which was praised by E! Online as an “excellent pop/r&b hybrid,” ‘Bad Side,’ which Cosmopolitan included on their list of ‘Best Songs of the Summer’ and the EP’s lead single, ‘CASH RULES,’ featuring hip-hop heavyweight Method Man.
 
Since the release of Iyla’s debut EP, ‘War + Raindrops,’ (including fan favorites ‘Juice and ‘Flowers) the young Los Angeles-born artist — whose influences include Destiny’s Child, Brandy, Aaliyah, SZA, Kehlani and H.E.R –has amassed more than 65 million streams across Spotify, Apple and YouTube. She has achieved Top 40 success at rhythmic radio, been appointed by YouTube Music as one of their Foundry Artists (following in the footsteps of ROSALÍA and Dua Lipa) and headlined her first ever North American tour with sell out shows in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and Toronto, to name a few. With just 2 Eps under her belt, Iyla has received critical acclaim from the likes of FADER, V Magazine, NYLON, MTV, and Vogue.
