Bella Poarch's New Music Video Reveals Some Major Streamers

Fans of TikToker-turned-pop-singer Bella Poarch were ecstatic when she recently teased the new music video for her latest single "Inferno," which she worked on with songwriter and producer Sub Urban. While any new content from Poarch has the power to get her followers excited, the music video for "Inferno" appears to feature a star-studded cast full of streamers. Even though the video doesn't drop until August 13, fans have already spotted some of their favorite YouTube and Twitch stars in the preview.


This isn't the first time Poarch enlisted her streamer friends to participate in a music video. Gaming queen Valkyrae collaborated with Poarch in the video for "Build a B***," and some fans have already speculated that the 100 Thieves co-owner will also appear in "Inferno." Valkyrae is one of the first women to own an esports team, which keeps her fairly busy, but she's supportive of other women in the content creation space, making her work with Poarch a no-brainer. 

Valkyrae responded to Poarch's "Inferno" announcement tweet with several eye emojis, which Poarch reacted to with a blushing face. One fan believed they'd already spotted Valkyrae in the short preview clip, but it's difficult to confirm or deny. Even still, Rae's response to Poarch adds fuel to the rumor mill. However, Valkyrae isn't the only star included in Poarch's new project.


A host of YouTube and Twitch stars

Ludwig Ahgren, who recently marathon-streamed to break Ninja's subscriber record, also responded to Poarch's tweet with side-eye emojis, suggesting that he also makes an appearance in "Inferno." Sure enough, Ludwig appears in the teaser video — right before a shot featuring Adin Ross, who Ludwig has feuded with in the past (via Dexerto). Ludwig actually brought up Ross on Poarch's announcement, dubbing the singer "THE GREAT UNITER BETWEEN ME AND ADIN — NOW SECRET BEST FRIENDS." While it's unclear if Ludwig and Ross are actually chill now, they at least managed to put their differences aside for the sake of the video.


In typical playful form, English streamer TommyInnit responded to Poarch with a behind-the-scenes picture of himself in costume, scowling in front of a green screen. "LOOK MUM IM IN A MUSIC VIDEO HAHAHA," he captioned the photo.

Fans spotted other streaming stars in the short teaser and speculated on others who might appear. One eagle-eyed viewer clocked DisguisedToast as a doorman. Some fans also linked beauty influencer Bretman Rock to the project in addition to the many confirmed streamers. One commenter noted that Rock mentioned his involvement in a project with Valkyrae on stream recently. Given Rock's role in Poarch's video for "Build a B***," it wouldn't be surprising for him to join his friend in her latest release.


Despite the long list of beloved streamers and creators in playful cameos, "Inferno" packs a serious message, which Poarch elaborated on when she shared the preview. 

"Inferno" has a serious message

"Inferno" may star a multitude of streamers, but that's not the point of this fiery single, and the message Poarch sent to fans is far from a happy one.

Bella Poarch included a trigger warning along with the preview of her new video. The singer began, "As a victim of sexual assault, this song and video mean a lot to me." She continued to say that she hasn't "been ready to share" her experiences in the past because the topic is understandably difficult. "It's very hard for me to talk about," she said. "But I'm ready now."


Poarch referred to the video as "a fantasy I wish was true," but she didn't offer more information about the video's plot or how it served as a fantasy. However, Poarch's fans seemed to understand the message, calling her "strong" for being willing to share such an intimate part of her life. Considering the content of the "Build a B***" video, it's possible that "Inferno" will engage in good old fashioned revenge, which might feel cathartic for both Poarch and her fans.
