Bebe Rexha is a 27-year-old pop singer, songwriter, and record producer. The Brooklyn, New York native may not be a household name just yet, but I guarantee that’s going to change sooner rather than later.
Bebe got her start in the music business in July of 2010, becoming the lead vocalist of Black Cards, which was created as a side project for Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz. The band played some shows and released a handful singles, but they never really did anything too substantial. Bebe left Black Cards in January of 2012, and it wasn’t until she got signed by Warner Bros. Records as a solo artist in 2013 when she really started to make some noise.
Her first big success came later that year as a songwriter, earning writing credits on the Eminem and Rihanna smash “The Monster.” The song hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy award for the Best Rap/Sung Performance.
In 2014, Bebe was featured on and helped write “Hey Mama.” The collaboration between David Guetta, Bebe, Nicki Minaj, and Afrojack was released as a single on March 16, 2015, and it peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Bebe released her debut EP on May 12, 2015, which was entitled I Don’t Wanna Grow Up. The EP produced the two singles “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” and “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy.”
On October 14, 2015, Bebe and G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself & I” was released. Bebe helped write the song and was featured on the ridiculously catchy chorus. The song was immensely popular, peaking at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart. Bebe’s latest song to blow up was a collaboration with Martin Garrix. “In the Name of Love” was released this past summer, and it peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart.
Up next for Bebe is the release of All Your Fault: Pt. 1. The EP was released on Friday, February 17, 2017, and All Your Fault: Pt. 2 is currently scheduled to drop in April of 2017. I’m sure both editions will be chock-full of infectious pop bangers.
