Priscilla Block turns the tables in her song “Bad Guy” from her newly released PB2 EP.

Challenging traditional gender roles in relationships, the North Carolina native highlights that “sometimes the girl is the bad guy” who causes the breakup. Throughout the lyrics, she paints the picture of a confident woman who decides to leave a relationship without looking back.    

“Sometimes the boots that up and leave/ Are snakeskin 7s with heels underneath/ The dagger gets thrown by painted nails/ Straight to a heart, puttin’ it through hell/ Sometimes the one that does you wrong Is a bombshell, blue-eyed, do you dirty blonde/ And it’s red lipstick saying goodbye/ Sometimes the girl is the bad guy,” she sings on the heart-pounding chorus.

Block, who co-write “Bad Guy” with Trannie Anderson, Cole Taylor, and David Garcia, says this track is “the sassy anthem that I want to dance to all night long in a club.” 

As the song continues to gain momentum on streaming platforms, Block released the “Bad Guy” video, vividly bringing the song’s storyline to life. Fans may notice that the video is a continuation of previous clips released by Block as it showcases throwbacks to her “Good On You” video at the beginning of the clip. 

For this visualizer, Block is seen at the hair salon, telling her story to her hairstylist. Other clips show the songstress cruising in a convertible appearing to let off some steam as she drives around solo.

Toward the end, Block receives a large envelope from the “PBI” and inside, there’s a full report about “Jack” who happens to be a “Bad Guy” and “serial cheater. This is a nod to her song, “Hey Jack,” which is also featured on the PB2 EP. 

The five-song project also includes the relatable “Hell Out Of A Hometown” and the tender “Apartment,” which showcases a softer side of the singer/songwriter. 

She previously teased that the EP was “the start of an ongoing story” and told fans to pay “close attention” to what was coming. 

Block recently headlined her very own Hey Jack Tour and has a slew of performances planned for the rest of the summer. She is set to appear at Windy City Smokeout in Chicago, IL, Country Boom Festival in West Salem, WI, Rock the South in Cullman, AL, and more.

Fans can visit her official website for a complete list of upcoming tour dates.
