The Orange is the New Black star continues to showcase her skills as an impassioned singer-songwriter.
For Jackie Cruz, striving for feminism and inclusivity are is a part of daily life, the actress and singer-songwriter uses her considerable platform to battle for these causes and attempt to rectify issues with inclusivity and lack of diversity in the industries that she works in.
‘Be Bad’ is a track that personifies this. An empowering, unapologetic feminist anthem, the track and its on-the-nose music video call out some of the problems with the ways that women are treated and portrayed, and implores women to be bad, to not compromise or filter themselves for anybody.
It also helps that the track is a sultry, captivating and memorable R&B hit, that whisks you away with its calm yet defiant tone. Be bad, not good.
