To date, Bibi Bourelly has written modern classics of our time including Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money,” “Higher,” “Pose” “Yeah, I Said It” and Selena Gomez’s “Camouflage”. Most recently, Bibi co-wrote “I Have Questions” with Camila Cabello (on her debut LP, The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving.)
Having released her new live EP – ‘BOY (IN STUDIO), as the title suggests, BOY (IN STUDIO) delves into relationships through the prism of Bibi’s life, in and out of the spotlight. For each track, she shares anecdotes and insights. Bourelly’s path to her label Def Jam began in Berlin, where she was born into an artistic family. Her father, Jean-Paul Bourelly, is of Haitian and American descent; her late mother, of Moroccan descent, was the head of the Art Department at Berlin’s House of World Culture. Bibi’s decision to immigrate to the U.S. in high school eventually brought her to Los Angeles, where her career took off.
BOY (IN STUDIO) peers right into Bibi’s creative outlet, the studio and deep into her personal songwriting. The mini-documentary showcases live performances of each EP cut; ‘Sunshine’, ‘Poet’, ‘Flowers’ and ‘Untitled’. Each displaying Bibi’s colours, the songs combine dulcet guitar lines with delicate and poignant vocal performances.
