It’s easy to say that you “don’t care” about who likes your music and who doesn’t, but there one’s (super) human on this earth whose blessing happens to matter a lot: Rihanna’s.
This weekend, RiRi took to Instagram to share that her “new fav song” is Russ and BIA’s collab “BEST ON EARTH,” released last Friday (October 18). Her online proclamation is a major win for both Boston’s own BIA and the city’s growing hip-hop scene; as of Sunday evening, the post had been viewed over 14 million times and had garnered over 5 million likes, while the song was also holding steady at number three on the iTunes hip-hop/rap chart. It’s what BIA (and Boston) deserve.
