‘Fake It Flowers’ is out now
Fil-Brit artist beabadoobee (Beatrice Laus) is more than what meets the eye. With her soft voice, innocent facade, and dazzling accent, you probably wouldn’t think it’s the same 20-year belting her heart out through her songs.
That same passion shines more than ever through her recently-dropped debut album ‘Fake It Flowers‘ – a powerful tribute to growing up as the ‘loud, annoying girl‘ and the unsung complexities that come with it.
The Iloilo-born artist proudly calls her latest album a ‘female record‘, what with tracks that convey familiar coming-of-age moods, from the fiery IDGAF track ‘Care‘ to dreaming up future children names with her boyfriend through ‘Yoshimi, Forest, Magdalene‘.
‘It’s so heartwarming to know that I’ve helped [listeners] somehow, in some way, to be more comfortable with themselves. It makes me happy,’ Bea shared on her music’s impact.
Ultimately, the 12-track album is a Y2K-esque project filled with substance, dreams of the future, and rage. Much like women, it’s pretty hard to sum it up in just one word.
‘It’s a record for girls to cry to and dance to and get angry to. It’s all about, like, how annoying it is to be a girl.’

Meanwhile, beabadoobee is set to play headline shows across the UK and Ireland in 2021. Once the pandemic is over, Bea also plans to visit her birthplace of Iloilo, as it serves as one of her ‘dream‘ destinations.
‘Obviously one of my dream places to perform is my home – which is Iloilo. I would love to come and just thank you for all the support. Hopefully soon, because f*ck Corona.’
To celebrate the album’s release, a YouTube live stream will also premiere tonight at 3:30 AM with Bea talking to fans and performing her latest bangers.
