Beatrice Kristi Ilejay Laus, otherwise known as Beabadoobee is a Filipino-English artist who creates gentle, warm songs that are often in relation to romance. Since 2018, this young woman has made various singles and albums, such as Patched Up, Loveworm and Fake It Flowers. She obtained popularity around 2021 while being featured in a soft, faint song titled “death bed (coffee for your head)” by Powfu. Many people all around the social media used that song for aesthetic purposes and loved the concept of this single.
Two years after that single was released, Beatopia, her now trending album, was created. Various songs under that album drew attention to the young singer, increasing her streams and popularity. Such examples could be “the perfect pair”, “Sunny day”, “Lovesong” and many more you can find in her track list.
One year later, she released her viral single “Glue Song” which tremendously increased her fame. Ever since the album and single were released, her name was mentioned by many listeners — praising her for her amazing works for Beatopia and the ones previously.
Just when people thought things couldn’t be better, Beabadoobee and Laufey collaborated to create a song named “A Night to Remember” as a result of mixing Laufey’s jazzy tunes and Beabadoobee’s indie style. This collaboration received ultimate praise and fame as people on TikTok claim it to be the “collab of the century”. Because of her viral hits, she has gained more listeners and was recognized for her lovely music.
Beabadoobee is an artist I would recommend to those looking for mellow love songs that have meanings that can be seen in today’s world. Not only the romance genre but some songs that are relatable to listeners, especially girls. For example, “Apple Cider'' covers the meaning of uncertainty one can experience when liking someone. Additionally, it shows the difficulty of distinguishing between staying friends and becoming more than that. Another example could be her single “the way things go” in which the protagonist begins to lose the memory about someone who she believed loved her. She simply brushes off at the thought of that since she cannot do anything about it. Overall, she is an inspiring artist who creates beautiful, mellow songs in which people can resonate with.
