    Trapo - “Bad Gal”

    Ever since Trapo released his debut project The Black Beverly Hills back in November, he’s had my undivided attention. His ability to make personal stories of doubt and insecurity into songs that are not just relatable, but thoroughly enjoyable, make him seem far beyond just 17 years old. Though his impressive debut was just a few short months ago, Trapo returns with a new single, “Bad Gal”—sounding ready to continue his hot streak.

    On his latest single, Trapo rhymes over a sped up sample of Jill Scott’s 2000 single “He Loves Me,” which seems fitting as the conclusion of “Bad Gal” is overcoming the negative energy surrounding him by learning to be more comfortable with himself. The more this song continues to play on repeat, the more therapeutic it begins to feel. I thought I was too old to relate to 17-year-olds at this point, but Trapo has proved me wrong once again.—Adrienne Black
