Who is Bebe Rexha?
Bebe Rexha was born in Brooklyn, New York, to Albanian parents on August 30th, 1989. From a very young age, Rexha was interested in music. She played the trumpet as a child and taught herself guitar & piano. In high school, she participated in a number of musicals, as well as the choir.
When she was still a teenager, Rexha submitted a song to the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences’ Grammy Day, and earned the award for “Best Teen Songwriter.” Because of this, she signed on with talent scout Samantha Cox, who convinced Rexha to start taking songwriting classes.
In 2010, Rexha met Pete Wentz and started working with him as a lead vocalist for his band Black Cards. In 2012, she left the band to start her solo career. In 2013, she signed with Warner Bros. Records as a soloist and wrote a number of songs for well-known artists, like Selena Gomez’s “Like a Champion”, Nikki Williams’s “Glowing”, and Eminem’s “The Monster”.
The year after, Rexha released her debut single “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” which surged on the charts. Since then, she has been known for her songwriting abilities, and has worked with many popular artists. We’re excited to hear about the news of her BTS collab and have a feeling that the song will be one of her best.
