Bebe Rexha Collabs With Itzy And Here’s Its Teaser!

Bleta Rexha was born on August 30, 1989, in the Brooklyn borough of New York City to Albanian parents.  Her father, Flamur Rexha, was born in Debar, Macedonia (now North Macedonia), while it was part of Yugoslavia, and came to the United States at the age of 21. Her mother, Bukurije Rexha, was born in the United States to an Albanian family with origins in Gostivar, North Macedonia. “My parents are Albanian, and people began calling me ‘Bebe’ for short,” she added. When she was six, she and her family relocated to adjacent Staten Island.  Florent is Rexha’s brother. Rexha played trumpet and learned herself to play guitar and piano. Rexha attended Tottenville High School on Staten Island, where she participated in a number of productions. She also joined the choir while still in high school.

She learned she had a coloratura soprano voice after joining the choir. Rexha’s musical inspirations include Coldplay, the Cranberries, Lauryn Hill, Alanis Morissette, and Kanye West. Rexha signed as a solo artist with Warner Bros. Records in 2013. Rexha had began penning numerous songs, including Selena Gomez’s “Like a Champion” and Nikki Williams’ “Glowing.” Her most notable songwriting endeavor in 2013 was Eminem and Rihanna’s “The Monster,” which was released as the fourth single from Eminem’s album The Marshall Mathers LP 2. The song went on to top the US Billboard Hot 100 and the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, and it received a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Performance at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony. That same year, Rexha penned and appeared on Cash Cash’s hit “Take Me Home,” which reached the top 10 in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Rexha released her first song, “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You,” on March 21, 2014. The song reached at number 22 on the US Top Heatseekers list. The music video was released on August 12, 2014. The video was influenced by visuals from films such as Girl, Interrupted, and Melancholia. Rexha appeared on Pitbull’s song “This Is Not a Drill” in November 2014. In September 2014, she was named Elvis Duran’s Artist of the Month and appeared on NBC’s Today program, hosted by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb, where she played live her hit “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You.”

In December 2014, Rexha released two additional songs, “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy” and “Gone.” She released her first EP, I Don’t Wanna Grow Up, on May 12, 2015, on Warner Bros. Records. She also co-wrote and appeared on David Guetta’s hit “Hey Mama,” featuring Nicki Minaj and Afrojack. The song reached at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and has 1.1 million downloads as of June 2015. Despite the fact that she performs the chorus and is heard on background vocals, the song did not initially give Rexha credit. She was eventually granted credit for her efforts in June 2015.

Rexha spoke with Nicki Minaj’s manager, Gee Roberson, and inquired whether Minaj would contribute to a new song. In March 2016, Rexha released her song “No Broken Hearts,” which featured Nicki Minaj. The music video, created by Dave Meyer, was released in April 2016.  The video has received over 265 million views on YouTube.  On July 29, 2016, Rexha and Dutch DJ and record producer Martin Garrix released their track “In the Name of Love.” It peaked at number 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100, number four on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, and reached the top 10 in other countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Italy, and New Zealand. Martin Garrix’s YouTube account premiered the music video on August 23, 2016.

Rexha started teasing new tracks for the third edition of the All Your Fault series in September 2017, with her management going on public regarding its arrival. However, it seemed that plans had altered when Bebe stated in a tweet in November 2017 that her next project will be named Expectations. Rexha announced the cover art for her first studio album on April 8, 2018, and the album was published on June 22, 2018. Expectations also includes previous hits from All Your Fault, “I Got You” and “Meant to Be.”
