Your favorite internet babe’s got something to say.
What do you get when a viral producer teams up with the most mysterious internet it-girl? An introspective bop that digs into the many layers of identity and online hate. Looks like your fall playlist is already heating up…you’re welcome.
Over the past year, the not-quite-human Lil Miquela has amassed over 1 million followers on Instragram, graced the covers of some of our favorite fashion mags, and managed to turn up on pretty much everyone’s style inspo boards. She’s virtually everywhere and nowhere at the same time. But with that kind of fame in the online arena, Miquela experiences no shortage of internet trolls and doubters.
What’s most interesting about Miquela, beyond her cute outfits and hairdos, is that she has never shied away from her feelings (yes, feelings) on what it means to be what she is and the daily challenges that come along with the spotlight. In that same vein, Baauer’s VIP remix of “Hate Me” showcases Miquela’s ambient vocals and raw thoughts for everyone to see. Listen and learn the lyrics below.
