After dropping her 2021 standout project, LOVE BLACK, Bktherula is making more noise with the release of her newest album, LVL5 P1.
Beginning it’s rollout with the recent release of two hard-hitting singles, “TAN” and “PSSYONFT,” her 2022 collaboration with Destroy Lonely, “FOREVER, PT. 2 (JEZEBEL)” is a major highlight on the album. Additionally, she’s set to support the record on her “LVL 5 Tour” this coming March.
Tracks such as “DO IT AGAIN” and “CRAZY GIRL“, have BK in her melodic bag floating over ethereal instrumentals produced by SimmyAuto and DaySupreme. While on “NO ADLIB” and “?????“, she snaps off aggressive bars over bass-knocking trap beats. “BACK” illustrates the Atlanta native’s ability to create cloudy ballads with a perfect balance of rhythm and euphony — showing off her enchanting, serenading vocals on “BELIEVE” where she calls out a girl who did her wrong.
On the closing track, “WE MADE IT,” BK joins forces with fellow female powerhouse Rico Nasty on an inspiring celebratory track. While trading verses, the two stars boast about their success and hard work to get to the point that they are at in their individual careers.
LVL5 P1 showcases a different side of BK’s versatility, as she finds influence from a variety of different genres in just 10 tracks. Ultimately, it seems as though BK’s confidence in her vocal ability has grown ten-fold — experimenting with more soulful melodies and celestial adlibs as well as giving fans a taste of different flows and cadences.
Bktherula’s momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down with her tour fast-approaching. Already the leading female in the underground — whose slowly bordering mainstream circles — it wouldn’t be a surprise if BK reaches an entirely new level of acclaim this year.
