Bea Miller Debuts Official Video for “S.L.U.T”
(sweet little unforgettable thing)
Sophomore Album Due This February
22 January 2018 (Toronto, ON) - Co-written by Bea Miller, Steph Jones and Ido Zmishlany, “S.L.U.T.” (sweet little unforgettable thing) is one of the featured tracks from Bea’s recently released chapter three: yellow EP. The companion video, directed by duo AJ & Miles (whose credits include Billie Eilish, Stanaj, Jaden Smith and Kid Ink), features women representing beauty in all its shapes, sizes, and ethnicities. Watch the official video for “S.L.U.T.”, out now via Hollywood Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, HERE.
While the title is provocative, the message of the funk-tinged song is timely. Harassment comes in many forms and an experience of Bea’s sparked the origin of the song. As Bea tells it, she was “wearing a bodysuit and white skirt. It was hot, and I wasn’t wearing a bra, which I thought was perfectly acceptable,” she says. But when Miller posted a photo, a young woman who saw it, rudely begged to differ.
“The girl called me a slut and I lost it,” Miller remembers. “I was ranting. Women should support each other…and I don’t understand what the problem is with nipples.” Miller had a thought to look up the nasty term on Urban Dictionary and found a post defining it as an acronym for “Sweet Little Unforgettable Thing” — and the lyric was born. “I thought, that’s amazing,” recalls Miller, “and we wound up writing a fantastic song that was also a cool and funny response to this girl.”
If you don't like what I'm wearing
Well you're only bothered cuz you're staring
And you'll never talk me into caring
Cuz it's my own and I'll keep owning it
Just mind your own and I'll keep owning it
We gotta learn to stick together
Love your color, gender or whatever
Cuz your happiness don't need a sensor
Just mind your own and we'll keep owning it
Miller is gearing up to release her sophomore album which will include her anthology of EP releases tied to a different primary coloor: chapter one: blue, (sadness); chapter two: red, (redemption); and chapter three: yellow, (self-discovery) plus five additional songs.
