300 Entertainment continues to bolster its roster of young talent with the signing of newest act BlakeIANA, a Midwest-based rapper on the rise for her song “BING BONG.”
“When I heard BlakeIANA, I was impressed and definitely excited by the sound,” 300 Entertainment co-president Selim Bouab tells Billboard. “Once I sat down with her face-to-face, I was blown away by her vision and personality. It was evident that she was in it for the long haul as a career artist. You can identify star power right away, and it wasn’t hard with BlakeIANA. We’ve got an exciting road ahead.”
300 Entertainment’s co-president Rayna Bass agrees with Bouab telling Billboard: “BlakeIANA has already built an incredible foundation on her own. Our goal is to naturally magnify her impact, so she can grow into the superstar she was always meant to be. We’re so excited to begin this chapter together and welcome her to the 300 Entertainment family.”
Anchored by ominous piano keys, BlakeIANA’s “Bing Bong” is a two-minute exhibition of raw energy and aggressive barbs laid out by the burgeoning star. Lines like, “If that n—a top five, I’m granting him three wishes” and “You can be his peace cuz I’m the type to give him hell.” The record has been lauded by JT of City Girls on Instagram.
“I’m so ready to show the world what a girl from St. Louis about,” says BlakeIANA. “I’m representing the girlies only and, of course, my city. Watch when I tell you I’m going to be the next big female artist coming out of 300. Simple!”
