Blood sisters + baby monsters Bebi Monsuta debut a contagious and bouncy new single “808” accompanied by a captivating, body-bold, and self-choreographed video. Feast your eyes on the official visual bolstered by a kawaii-hop beat and gear your booties for your 1st…. or millionth…. dance break!
“Bounce, bounce, bounce like it’s 808” they sing, and you indeed will. The one-love, all-love sisters teleport us to the future in this vibrant, feel-good first offering from their genre-defying debut EP project slated for release on +1 Records/EMPIRE.
And if you’re nearby New York, you can dance along at Elsewhere’s Zone 1 stage in Brooklyn on August 13th //tickets here// as Bebi Monsuta will be supporting La Doña.
One sister, Manami, born in the Bronx, and the other Akira, born in Manhattan, together fuse a level of energy and confidence only bred in New York City, with their Afro-American and Caribbean roots and Japanese and Portuguese-Brazilian heritage woven through the sonic spirit of the music. The Bebi is sweet but the Monsuta is hard.
Inspired by a melange of genres, and roused from the music of Gwen Stefani, Vanity 6, Brazilian Funk, and alternative R&B, Bebi Monsuta is a force of sounds from the fringe to be reckoned with — and in their own words, “unapologetically us.”
“808” follows Bebi Monsuta’s first song release, “Brazilian Sound” ft. ABRONCA (listen here) which earned overseas airplay on BBC 1Xtra with Jamz Supernova and over 200K streams.
Manami and Akira ask, “what’s poppin?” Together, the sisters marry their Caribbean, Japanese, and Portuguese-Brazilian roots into their self-written music and bold visuals. They make music for the outcasts, and the villains that aren’t really villains but were just demonized by a society that hasn’t caught up yet (and may never…)….!
Bebi Monsuta is for the nerds, the condemned, and the abandoned ones.
We want people to feel motivated and worthy, we want those who listen to this project to feel that the truth is and will always be better than a lie. Stand in it, own it and be brave.
