LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Bella Poarch, a popular TikTok user, released the fascinating ‘Dolls’ EP last year, and whose title track had a bizarre music video with Grimes, Madison Beer and other celebrities. She has now made a musical comeback with the song and video for ‘Crush.’
The light, cheeky song showcases Poarch’s playful side, highlighting the flirty feeling of butterflies in the stomach. Lauv, praised for being a sweet artist, praised Poarch’s ability to work with him and expressed his happiness with the release. The new song, however, disappointed Poarch’s fans.

The 26-year-old Bella Poarch said in a statement, “‘Crush’ is this fun, brighter side of me that I’m excited to showcase.” She continued, “The song itself is light, cheeky, and it gives you the flirty feeling of butterflies in your stomach that you get when sparks begin to fly.”
She further added, “It’s about being in the moment and indulging in the simple things like binging Love Island or having an innocent crush without overthinking it (which I’m guilty of).”

“Lauv is such an incredible artist and being able to work with him is such an honor. He’s one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met, and I LAUVed working with him hehe,” Poarch added.
Lauv stated, “’Crush’ is about that feeling when you’re into someone but don’t wanna cross the line ’cause it’s so fun just being slightly into them. I wrote this song in Thailand with some amazing songwriters and when Bella wanted to record it.”
He went on to say, “I was so excited to hear her take on it. Love singing with her and so happy ‘Crush’ is finally out!”

Another user expressed dislike for the song, writing, “Might be the first song of yours that I didn’t like…”
The third commentator questioned, “Which has more filters? Your pics or your voice now?”
