Facebook BARS is a new app from Facebook’s New Product Experimental team, built to help aspiring rappers create and share their work.
It can be difficult for aspiring rappers to gain access to expensive recording studios and equipment. This has been especially challenging during the pandemic, which has shut down live performances across the globe.
That’s why DJ Iyer (aka D-Lucks), a “hip-hop songwriter and ghostwriter” and Facebook employee, built “BARS: a place for aspiring rappers to create and share their art.”
How BARS Works
BARS allows you to focus on your content and experimentation, and easily create and share your raps, instead of having to invest in expensive equipment. It’s simple to use, allowing you to write your lyrics and record yourself rapping over professionally-created beats. The app will also auto-suggest rhymes for you as you write to help you keep your flow.
A “Challenge mode” lets you freestyle using auto-suggested word cues, while you can also pick a variety of “audio and visual filters to take your creations to the next level.” We’re not entirely sure what that means but we’ll report back when we hear from the NPE team.
If you’re just getting started, don’t worry – BARS won’t require prior “formal rap experience.” According to D-Lucks, “you can create something great whether you’ve just thought of a dope couplet or have been freestyling for years.”
You will need to sign up for the waitlist to join the closed beta. Also, the app will only be available on the US App Store for the time being. Expect more and news and further announcements on the BARS Instagram profile.
