Bebe Rexha Bio
Bebe Rexha (born August 30, 1989 as Bleta Rexha) is an American singer, songwriter and record producer. She is best known as a featured singer on several Billboard Hot 100 songs such as G-Eazy‘s “Me, Myself & I” and David Guetta‘s “Hey Mama“. She also co-wrote the chart-topping Eminem and Rihanna single, “The Monster” (and among other songs). In March 2016, she released a song, called “No Broken Hearts” featuring Nicki Minaj, as the first single from her upcoming debut studio album, All Your Fault. The album is due to be released on February 17, 2017.
Rexha’s career began after she had a chance encounter with Fall Out Boy bassist, Pete Wentz, at a New York City recording studio in 2010. She would eventually become the lead vocalist of Wentz’s new experimental project, Black Cards. The band played a variety of live shows and released several singles and remixes. In January 2012, however, Wentz announced that Rexha had left the band to pursue other endeavors.
In 2013, Rexha was signed to Warner Bros. Records as a solo artist. Prior to signing, Rexha had written several songs, including “Like a Champion” for Selena Gomez and “Glowing” for Nikki Williams. Her most prominent songwriting effort of 2013 was Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster.” Rexha had begun writing and producing the song with Jon Bellion, Frequency, and Aalias in 2012, and it was intended to be on her own upcoming album. It was originally titled, “Monster Under My Bed.” The song eventually made its way to Riggs Morales, the Vice President of A&R at Atlantic Records, who stripped the original version down and made it the fourth single off of Eminem’s album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2. It went on to top the charts for the Billboard Hot 100 and the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. Rexha also wrote and was featured on Cash Cash‘s single, “Take Me Home” that year.
On March 21, 2014, Rexha released her debut single “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You.” The song peaked at number 22 on Billboard‘s Top Heatseekers chart. The music video for the song was released on August 12, 2014 and was inspired by imagery from films like Girl, Interrupted and Melancholia. Rexha released two more singles, “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy” and “Gone,” in December 2014. Her debut EP was released through Warner Bros. on May 12, 2015 and was entitled I Don’t Wanna Grow Up.
Earlier in 2014, Rexha was featured on rapper Pitbull‘s song “This Is Not a Drill.” She also co-wrote and was featured in David Guetta’s “Hey Mama” also featuring Nicki Minaj and Afrojack. The song peaked at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and received 1.1 million downloads by June 2015. The song did not originally give Rexha a feature credit despite the fact that she sings the chorus and background vocals. She was eventually given a feature credit in June 2015.
In October 2015, Rexha co-wrote and was featured on G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself & I” which peaked at number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 1 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart. The song was originally titled “I Don’t Need Anything” and was intended as a song for Rexha herself. Instead, she brought the song idea to G-Eazy and was featured during the chorus.
In March 2016, Rexha released the first single off of her debut album, A.Y.F.. The single, “No Broken Hearts,” features Nicki Minaj and was produced by The Invisible Men. Prior to the release of the song, Rexha saw Minaj’s manager, Gee Roberson, at a party. She let him listen to the track and asked if Minaj would do a feature. Roberson sent the song to Minaj and she agreed to do the feature. The music video for the song was released in April 2016 and was directed by Dave Meyer. The video had accumulated over 135 million views on YouTube. A.Y.F. is due to be released in January 2017.
On July 29, 2016, Rexha together with Dutch DJ and record producer Martin Garrix released the single “In the Name of Love“. It has since peaked at number 24 on US Billboard Hot 100, at number 4 on US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs and has entered the top 10 charts in several countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Italy and New Zealand. The music video was released on 23 August 2016 on Martin Garrix YouTube Channel.
On October 28, 2016 Bebe released the second single from her upcoming debut studio album called ” I Got You“. It has since peaked at number 22 on US Billboard Pop Songs and at number 94 on US Billboard Hot 100, becoming her first Hot 100 hit as a lead artist.
