TikTok star Bella Poarch has released her very first music video featuring the one and only Valkyrae, along with many other recognizable social media celebs.
It seems like more and more TikTokers are jumping into the music industry lately, and Bella Poarch is one of them. Poarch, who went viral in 2020 for getting the most likes on a TikTok ever, has become quite an icon in the online world — and now, she’s taken her talents to the music biz.
On April 30, Poarch dropped a 15-second clip of a music video for her upcoming single ‘Build a Bitch,’ showing the star’s disembodied head atop a workbench as she waxed poetical about the constant criticism women receive about their bodies online.
Needless to say, fans were thrilled; but that wasn’t the only reason the hype was building. 100 Thieves streamer Valkyrae also teased a “big announcement” in the midst of this, which caused some to speculate that she could be appearing in the music vid.

Having already appeared in Corpse Husband’s ‘Daywalker’ video, it certainly seemed like a possibility — and this turned out to be true, with Valkyrae confirming she’d be making a feature in the video a short while later.
Fans can now watch Bella Poarch’s Build a Bitch music video via her very own YouTube channel.
The video went live at May 13, 9 PM PST (May 14, 12 AM EST) with thousands tuned into the YouTube premiere.
This isn’t Poarch’s first musical venture, either; the TikToker appeared in the music video for Sub Urban’s ‘Cirque’ early March, so the fact that she’s starting her own career in the industry doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, but rather a welcome development for the star.
With names like Dixie D’Amelio, Addison Rae and Chase Hudson kickstarting their own blossoming music careers, the time seems ripe for influencers to hop into the game while they can, and we can’t wait to see where Poarch’s songs take her in the future.
