Bebe Rexha has worked extremely hard to get to where she is today. She signed to Warner Bros in 2013, and it was in her hometown of New York City where she got her first big break - a writing credit on Rihanna and Eminem's The Monster record. From there, she just kept writing songs – and after a series of extended play releases, her 2018 debut album, Expectations, reached number 13 on the Billboard 200 chart, with the success of lead single, I'm a Mess, earning her two Grammy nominations, one as Best New Artist. She's also evolved her live show to incorporate a full band setup, and it's clearly working out: on 9th July, she will co-headline Isle of MTV, Europe's largest free music festival, with Martin Garrix.
As soon as Bebe Rexha begins talking, it's evident that she is an artist with zero ego, and bundles of energy. She's pretty excited right now, as after this interview finishes, she's heading straight into the studio to work on her new album. And there's also this little show in Malta to look forward to, of course.
“I think it's gonna be insane,” Rexha says. “These MTV shows are absolutely incredible, and it's just exciting to be there with my friends, and take in the energy. I've never been to Malta, but it looks absolutely gorgeous, too!”
