Many of them deemed it “dull.” Luckily, BIA only took the criticism lightly.

Rather than sweat the small stuff, BIA took the high road. The rapper acted like a total pro after telling fans that she’d use their criticism as a teachable moment. Furthermore, that following Wednesday morning, the rapper took to Twitter to explain that she appreciated the feedback.
Most importantly, she responded to the critics by saying, “One thing about me… I’ll always remain grateful and work on improving my skills. Thank you for the helpful feedback! I appreciate it and will come back stronger next time.”
The haters better watch out, BIA might make them eat their words.
