beabadoobee, one of the buzziest artists of 2020, with more than 900 million streams, including the sixth most streamed song of the summer, “deathbed (coffee for your head),” has released the video for “Worth It,” the third single from her highly-anticipated debut full-length album, Fake It Flowers, out October 16 on Dirty Hit – PRESS HERE to watch the video, directed by long-term collaborators bedroom and PRESS HERE to listen/stream “Worth It”.
Fake It Flowers is available for pre-order HERE and Bea’s new line of merch is available now HERE.
In the cinematic “Worth It” video, Bea appears hidden away in a dank and rundown motel room, as she captures the emotions of letting go of the nostalgic sentiments and mistakes that still haunt us from a previous time in our life. Flickering with brazen ambience, grunge-inspired 90’s-era guitar, the song, which received praise from Paper, Teen Vogue, NPR, Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, Uproxx and others, is written “simply about teenage infidelity” Bea admits, “and the mistakes one can make when they’re tempted to do things. It’s a bit of a confession song but also an understanding that it’s a part of life.”
“Worth It” joined a pair of previously released singles from Fake It Flowers, “Sorry,” a transformative confessional, knotted by vast guitar structures and agonizingly-vivid songwriting, and “Care,” an explicitly vulnerable new direction for Bea, rejecting sympathy from anyone who doesn’t take the time to get to know the real her and understand what she’s gone through in her life – complete with a cathartic, swooping chorus. The collection has garnered praise from New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone, NPR, Teen Vogue, Pitchfork, Wall Street Journal, The Fader, i-D, Uproxx, Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, Nylon, Complex, DuJour, and BBC Radio 1, who premiered “Care” on Hottest Record In The World by Annie Mac, helping to propel the track to well over three million steams.
