There's a new aspiring rapper gearing up to make her big debut on the hip-hop scene. Former Disney actress Bella Thorne recently revealed that she's preparing to drop her first rap album with the assistance of rap label exec Irv Gotti.
The unlikely duo stopped by Beats 1 on Apple Music and confirmed the forthcoming release of her album, What Do You See Now.
Dishing on the origins of Thorne's EP title, Gotti explained, "The album name comes from... she did a documentary for Vogue... So it's just Bella sitting there and she says, 'I know you're all out there judging me. I know you are. Just for one second, if you could, just close your eyes. Ok, now open them. What do you see now?... So I said, 'Yo, that's the name of the album, because I think people think of you in a certain way, and this album is so dope and has so many different vibes and real s**t on it. It's like, what do you see now?' And I just love that title."
Aside from the reception from her fans, Bella also touched on what it's been like working alongside Irv Gotti and her upcoming single, "B***h, I'm Bella Thorne."
Once news of the collab dropped, Twitter users quickly chimed in with their commentary.
