Bea Kadri tells us what “B4WBU” means!
London-based Lebanese singer-songwriter Bea Kadri grew up listening to mostly Pop, Hip-Hop and R&B from the 90’s. Her sound is chill and sultry and she writes and sings about self-discovery, empowerment and all matters of the heart. Her main message first and foremost is “to dare to follow your dreams”: believe in yourself, shut down the doubt and to use the negativities and challenges as fuel to break away from the expected paths to happiness and fulfillment.
Her discography consists of her debut single “Cloud 9”, three tracks on Universal Music’s album “Future Pop”: “Warning Sign”, “Knock Me Down” and “No Favours” (which have all been synced and placed on the Australian show Home and Away as well as paramount channel, channel 5 and BT Sport to name a few) and 3 featured EDM tracks “In Your Arms”, “Colors of Love”, “Dreaming” & “Deja Vu”.
With a DIY drive, she does most of her own visual artwork and video edits (she shot and edited her video “Knock Me Down” on vevo) and is also a fashion designer and creator of the brands Young Wilderness and Fashiontv Eyewear. By age 20, she was performing in several choirs, playing at local concerts and main festivals as the lead in 2 Pop/Rock bands as well as acting in musicals such as “Moulin Rouge”, “Alice In Wonderland” and “Dante’s Inferno” on the best stages in Beirut and Dubai.
Bea explains what her latest single “B4WBU” is all about: “This is a song about wishing time could stop so I could catch up with the reality sinking in that a love I once put on a pedestal needs to end. I’m unable to handle facing the emotions hence the hook “I need a break, before we break up”. This realization personally came after investing so much time and energy into a long distance relationship that came crumbling down when we finally came face to face”. In 2018, she moved to London to pursue a Masters degree in Music Business Management from the University of Westminster and so far been performing all around the city, including performing at the Brit Awards 2018 with Justin Timberlake, his choir, and Chris Appleton.
