Emerging singer-songwriter Bee-B (Brittany Chikyra Barber) taps into the spirit of the legendary rapper and producer duo of Missy Elliot and Timbaland on her new release titled "Confidence." The track sees her working with producers Harmony “H Money “ Samuels and Edgar "JV" Etienne who flip Missy's classic track "She's A Bitch" into something new for 2021. They employ the same low tone bassline, iconic stabs with some added features like sizzling synths and punchy drum grooves to match Bee-B's smooth flow and empowering lyrics that dwell on positive affirmation. Bee-B also got the approval of both Timbaland and Missy who gave her their blessing and the rest is history as the saying goes.
The visual makes use of a plethora of colorful motifs and set pieces that tie into the confidence theme of the song. From the '90s fashion and bubble goose gear, a slight nod to the Olympics, Michael Jackson's Thriller to the classic hip-hop entourage settings, the video delivers the goods which keep viewers locked in. Bee-B is in pure performance mode as she steps to bat with an animated style as she channels inspiration from Missy Elliot herself.
Bee-B is a Compton, CA-raised American Grammy Nominated singer, a songwriter who has penned songs for a myriad of acts such as Kash Doll, Summer Walker, John Legend amongst others. She also worked as an A&R for Warner Music Group and is a main cast member on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop Hollywood. Her Grammy nomination came in 2017 in the category of "Best R&B Album" for Ledisi’s Let Love Rule album, in which she wrote the title track as well as the duet, "Give You More" featuring John Legend.
