“Pretty Insecurities” – Elle Baez

While much of the past 20 or so years has been placed on a pop culture pedestal, we often forget how horrible a time it was for inclusivity. Growing up a larger kid on the playground, I rarely – if ever – saw myself represented on screens big or small, and it just added to a laundry list of ways I felt different than my peers. It’s clear I was not the only one struggling then as many artists today are combating long-standing so-called beauty standards by doing away with the likes of makeup or pushing body positivity into the limelight. Artists that include Grammy-winners like Alessia Cara and Lizzo, as well as rising stars such as Elle Baez with her newest single, “Pretty Insecurities.”

Since debuting in 2018, Elle Baez has showcased a myriad of styles in her releases from belting out ballads to hyping up crowds. With “Pretty Insecurities” she delivers an organic blend of smooth R&B with the charm of contemporary pop. What makes this song go the extra mile though is that it does touch on something that is a rising issue as we continue to be more and more addicted to being logged on, and that’s the power social media has on how we view our self-worth. The marriage of Elle Baez’s straightforward yet poetic lyricism with the lighthearted music is seamless, while the video for “Pretty Insecurities” makes a statement without doing too much. 

Elle Baez dropped her debut EP, ‘Bold Soul,’ in 2021 and followed that up with “Mister Possessive’ earlier this year. Now she’s back to make an impact not just on music, but society as a whole, with the release of “Pretty Insecurities.” To hear all of the above and more, make sure to check out Elle Baez on all major music and streaming platforms today.
