Jackie Cruz delivers a stunningly fierce new single, waving a flag for women’s rights and equality. “BE BAD” showcases the singer’s luscious velvety vocals, which ride softly atop sultry R&B melodies and glistening synth soundscapes. Cruz is an advocate for feminism and hopes her music may help shine a light on the issues we face in the entertainment industry.
Also known for her role in the Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, the award-winning hit series catapulted Cruz into the limelight for her role as Marisol "Flaca" Gonzales. Now the Latina artist is focusing on her true passion - music and she has already been causing a stir for her distinct and irresistible sound and compelling narratives.
The visuals for “BE BAD” show Cruz in a scene for a movie, being told by the director “God”, that she isn’t right to play the role of Eve in Adam and Eve. Cruz’s character declares that men and women are equal and immediately Adam and God protest and bring in another actress who will succumb to their needs. The songwriter highlights the importance of not bowing down to others, especially when it comes to feminism, equality and misrepresentation.
Take a watch of BE BAD now and stand up for yourself!
