In the "bad bitch" community (think Cardi B), there's not much room for insecurity or empathy. That's why Bailey Bryan has branded herself a "sensitive bad bitch," creating a sub-genre that is confident, but also in tune with real emotions.
Bryan is just 22 but has already ripened past her jaunty first single, "Own It," released in 2017 when she was 18. She's really on to something with this "sensitive bad bitch" (SBB) movement, which gives her permission to cry sometimes while maintaining her strength and independence.
In this episode, Bryan tells the stories behind some of her most popular songs and does a stripped-down acoustic version of "play w/ me," which is erupting on TikTok.
