Facebook is reportedly set to launch a new app called BARS. It is modeled off a TikTok-like template and will give aspiring rappers the ability to record with studio-quality vocal effects and professionally created beats.
There are many other features, including autotune and a word-suggestion function, to help spitters find the right word to fit their rhyme scheme. According to Yahoo! Finance, the app also has "Challenge mode, wherein users will have to rap freestyle while incorporating the auto-suggested word cues."
"I know access to high-priced recording studios and production equipment can be limited for aspiring rappers. On top of that, the global pandemic shut down live performances where we often create and share our work," said DJ Iyler of Facebook's New Product Experimentation Team (NPE Team).
Facebook has launched BARS as a closed beta for iPhones.
