Her new track ‘Love Me’ is a Lil Xan Collaboration. The single is a dysfunctional love song between one yearning for an elusive “great love” and another incapable of sharing it. BadMoodRude sings of the kind of relationship or mere flirtation that’s both toxic and intoxicating. The single features a keyboard-heavy track infused with BadMoodRude’s signature dreamy synths and floaty vocals, set against the contrast of Lil Xan’s distinct rap.
BadMoodRude is the dreamy, honest songwriter that you deserve to be listening to. The New York-based artist began her musical journey only a year ago but has quickly developed a passionate, diehard fanbase (31k on Instagram, 163k on TikTok) after releasing a number of honest, quirky singles that range in style from droning emo trap to lighthearted synth-pop. Born and raised in Rochester, New York, Rude was exposed to a number of genres throughout her childhood (from Limp Bizkit to Amy Winehouse) thanks to parents who were highly supportive of the city’s local melting pot of a music scene. She began her music career in marketing for a local concert promoter but doubled down on her own talent when her late grandmother encouraged her to continue finding her voice and become famous. Following her untimely passing, Rude began to develop into singer/songwriter you see today with offerings like “Novocaine”, “U Must H8 Me” and “If I Make You Sad”.
