Filipino R&B sensation Denise Julia returns with an upbeat banger that encourages young
women to embrace their sexuality and feel confident about themselves. On “B.A.D.,” the rising
phenom finds inspiration in writing an empowering track with delicate, pulsing rhythms and
sensual undertones.

“The inspiration for the lyrics came about spontaneously,” shares the chart-topping siren. “I was
freestyling on some beats when I came across a beat from an overseas producer based in
Nigeria. We had collaborated on previous tracks, and this particular beat had a distinct R&B
vibe I was searching for, and it was incredibly catchy.”

A departure from her usual style, Denise Julia’s “B.A.D.” reveals a significant step forward in
terms of songwriting and production. The viral hitmaker takes pride in how the song showcases
a more assured version of herself, not afraid to flesh out sprawling ideas and tackle more
mature, out-of-the-box themes.

“I want B.A.D. to be the song you play when you want to feel confident, pretty, and to embrace
your sexuality,” she explains. “It aligns with my goal of creating music that makes people feel
beautiful and empowered, stemming from my past experiences of feeling out of place due to my

“B.A.D.” is produced by constant collaborator JOEL from Nigeria, who has worked with the
promising newcomer on her previous song “bum 2 me.” According to Denise Julia, JOEL has a
knack for delivering edgy and sultry R&B music that embodies everything unassumingly cool
about the genre.

Co-producers Duane, J. Greg, and Steelo came in to provide final touches to the production,
resulting in an explosive earworm with the past and present becoming more seamlessly

The song also features rapper P-Lo, whose style and flow complement Julia’s incredible vocal
chops. The “NVMD” songstress adds, “My manager, John Vincent Salcedo, knew him and
reached out, and he sent over a verse. We collaborated on refining the final version, and he
delivered an excellent, catchy verse that fits the song perfectly.”

Denise Julia’s new single serves as a precursor to some music-related plans in the pipeline.
According to the R&B/soul newcomer, she is set to release a mini album soon, which will give a
taste of what’s to come with her full-length album.

“Additionally, I have numerous shows lined up for this year,” the young songstress shares. “After
taking a break to focus on the music, I'm thrilled to be back on the road and can't wait to share
the music with my fans. This mini album and the upcoming full-length album will be filled with
pure R&B goodness.”
