Rising as a songwriter for Eminem, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez, Brooklyn-born pop singer Bebe Rexha made her way from the studio to the stage, racking up hit singles with electronic artists Cash Cash, David Guetta, and Martin Garrix; rappers G-Eazy, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj; and country duo Florida Georgia Line, with whom she recorded the 2017 chart-topping country-pop crossover single "Meant to Be."
Although her work with other musicians spanned genres, her own material centered on darker pop textures influenced by hip-hop and R&B, as heard on her debut, 2018's Expectations
Rexha penned several hits for the likes of Selena Gomez ("Like a Champion") and Nikki Williams ("Glowing"), but it was "The Monster" -- her composition for Eminem and Rihanna -- that really caught the attention of the industry. The track reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and allowed Rexha to prepare for life as a solo artist. Following this success, she released her first EP, I Don't Wanna Grow Up, in May 2015, featuring the singles "I'm Gonna Show You Crazy" and "I Can't Stop Drinking Without You." As she continued to write for her full-length debut, Rexha scored a hit on a collaboration with rapper G-Eazy with "Me, Myself & I," which reached the Top Ten on the pop chart in 2016. She was also featured on the Martin Garrix hit "In the Name of Love," which climbed into the Top 30 by the end of the year.
Rexha's debut full-length effort, Expectations, arrived in June 2018. The album featured appearances by Tory Lanez and Quavo and rose to number 13 on the U.S. album chart. Album single "I'm a Mess" proved to be another hit, rising into the U.S. Top 40 and receiving gold certification in the U.S. and Australia. Days after the 2019 Grammy Awards -- where she was nominated for Best New Artist -- Rexha released the single "Last Hurrah," her seventh song to chart on the Hot 100.
