You’ve heard her voice and musical contributions for years but you may not know her name.
Bebe Rexha is a 27 year old albanian singer originally from Brooklyn, New york.
With the release of her first album All Your Fault pt 1 Feb 2017, its time for the world to get to know the 5’5 beautiful Bebe Rexha. We first heard Bebe’s work on the song Monster by Eminem and Rihanna. She wrote the song with a few friends and it was only the beginning. Bebe has worked on songs for Nick Jonas as well as Selena Gomez,now lets check out her awesome collaborations.
We first heard Bebe’s unique voice with G eazy on the track Me, Myself and I . Its such a catchy song, and I definitely remember when it was stuck in all our heads in 2015.
Bebe next appeared on David Guetta’s Hey Mama, although sometimes her credit wasn’t given. Reportedly, this was due to so many feature artists on the song, she was bumped out. Regardless, the positive Bebe shrugged it off, saying at least we are getting used to her voice, so when she releases her own music, we’ll already be used to listening to it.
In march 2016, Nicki Minaj joined Bebe in the hard to forget song No broken Hearts. The music video depicted a care free and fun atmosphere, and this was definitely a club banger.
Everything changed in 2016 for this beautiful young singer. One of the hardest working people in the business almost 10 years,after Nicki she made the decision to collaborate with Martin Garrix ( be sure to read my upcoming full write up on him!) on the song In the Name of Love. This song is so good, ballad elements, edm beats, and lyrics so simple yet poignant and of course catchy. Released in July, together with Martin , Bebe truly began to see her dreams come true. The music video (click here to watch) is beautiful, Bebe looks fabulous in red, which seems to be a recurring theme in her self expression. Martin looks handsome in a suit and elements of the video are very sensual.
But the endlessly talented Bebe is human, and at times has felt unsure of her career path. She admitted in a Jan 2017 interview with Weekend Throwdown. ” I said I can’t do this..literally I was like, I give up…I was thinking about it..” But then, dusting herself off she said, in true New Yorker strength, “Its a blessing to be in Music”. Shortly after struggling with her career identity, New Years Eve 2016 sparked a peaked interest in Bebe, when over 20 million spotify listeners in one month, enjoyed the release of her first solo single , I Got You .
February 17 2017, her album All your fault pt. 1 was released. It only costs around 5 bucks which is awesome. I have been enjoying the 6 tracks since I downloaded it. Bebe has said that this first part is rhythmic and urban with the upcoming parts to the album having difference musical influences. Releasing parts of her album separately has been a strategy to try to avoid songs being lost in today’s hyper speed music industry. I believe it may be an awesome strategy and wise business decisions such as this one I’m sure will help Bebe have a long successful music career. After enjoying her album and watching and reading countless interviews, she definitely has my admiration and respect.
If you would like to hear Bebe Rexha’s music, and remember to support a growing artist by downloading her songs, I have included convenient links throughout this article so you can do that easier. I recommend purchasing the new album whole (here) because it really does give an excellent taste of her style and music. I for one am looking forward to the other parts of the album and I will be sure to update on release dates!
March 2017 began her first headlining tour, and as this article is being written there are only a few more shows in the northeast for this run. I am confident her career will continue to grow and warrant further touring. I hope I can make it to the next tour!
