May 17, 2024 – Bktherula announces her upcoming North American tour, "I Just Wanna Be Me Tour," embarking this summer. Kicking off in June at Lyrical Lemonade's Summer Smash before quickly heading to the West Coast, the nationwide tour makes stops in Los Angeles on June 19th (the Echoplex) and New York on July 16th (Irving Plaza), finishing in Atlanta on July 27th. The tour features sounds from brandannogood, and follows Bk's successful stint as an opener for PinkPantheress on the "Capable Of Love Tour" (read about Bk's tour experience at NYLON). Tickets for the "I Just Wanna Be Me Tour" are available now HERE

The 21-year-old Bktherula always follows her inner muse and makes music without emotional inhibitions or artificial creative boundaries. On her new album, LVL5 P2, released in May, Bk takes her hybrid sound into new territory. The album features the buzzing singles "CRAYON," which has earned over three million streams, and "SHAKIN IT," a collaboration with Cash Cobain. Deepening a style she explored with her acclaimed 2023 album LVL5 P1, the new album deposits the listener directly into Bk's sonic realm, crafted by Bk with assistance from producers like azure, Simmyauto, among others. The album earned praise in Pitchfork ("The Atlanta rapper’s latest imagines a higher dimension where outré flexes and endless love affairs are enveloped by waves of metallic crunch and mind-expanding guitar"), Alternative Press (“The genre-bending rapper and singer-songwriter is competing in her own lane — perhaps even in her own dimension"), HYPEBEAST ("Bktherula Shows Her Versatility on New Album 'LVL5 P2'"), The FADER ("Bktherula expands her consciousness on LVL 5 P2"), and many other publications.

Recently named to Forbes' annual 30 Under 30 list, Bk has built a devoted following by releasing tracks that showcase her raw emotions. Now, with LVL5 P2, she’s done it again — delivering a singular statement that could never have come from anybody else.
