The singer’s song “Coffee” is arguably her most recognizable as it rose to popularity on the Billboard charts after it was used as a sample on the app Tik Tok. “Coffee” was sampled by Canadian artist Powfu in the song “Deathbed (coffee for your head).”
According to the press release, Beabadoobee’s song “Sorry” is an apology to a friend where she explains, “confessing my mistakes in a friendship and watching someone who I love break down and fade away as a person. It’s the idea of dismissing something because it felt too close to home and a personal reminder to never take for granted what that person could have had.”
“Sorry” has heavy alternative tones that include string instruments that add to the drama and intensity of the song. Bea’s soft vocals can be compared to that of Gwen Stefani but with her own personal twist. The contrast of the light vocal track along with the electric guitar gives the song a unique sound that bends genres.
