In 2021, Bella Poarch released her first single.

After signing to Warner Records, Bella put out the song "Build a B---h," accompanied by a star-stacked music video.

Bella Poarch revealed that she is a sexual assault survivor.

“As a victim of sexual assault, this song and video mean a lot to me,” Bella explained in a statement along with the "Inferno" music video release. "This is something I haven’t been ready to share with you just yet. It’s very hard for me to talk about. But I’m ready now."

“I decided to express myself by creating a song and video with Sub Urban based on how I wished my experience went. It’s a fantasy I wish was true. I’m looking forward to sharing this with you all," she said.

Are Bella Poarch and Dream dating?

As Bella's popularity grew and she made invaluable connections in the gaming world, she began to network with some pretty high-profile gaming influencers including Minecraft's Dream. When Bella was first getting involved with the Minecraft YouTube world, the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns were still in their prime. At the time, although Dream was famous, no one even knew what he looked like.

After Dream's face was revealed and the lockdowns lifted, he and Bella were spotted together after she attended one of his concerts in Los Angeles. They went out to dinner together and fans began to speculate something could be going on between them. So far, there hasn't been any word on how true those rumors are.
