Bebe Rexha is putting singles on the charts like it’s her day job. This New York native has become one of the more popular pop artists climbing the charts this semester. Recently, she released her debut album “All Your Fault, Pt. 1” to great success.
Rexha believes that this album is a look at herself. “Rather than victimizing, I looked at myself and reflected on who I am. ‘All your Fault’ is actually a positive,” Rexha says on her bio page on her website. “I decided to take my life into my own hands. I’m not holding back with the music.” This album draws from nineties R&B and modern pop styles. It features artists G-Eazy and Ty Dolla $ign. It also features her current hit single “I Got You.”
“Atmosphere” is the album’s opener. This is an apt tune both for the clubs and hanging out on an afternoon. Bebe’s superior rapping skills and a slow, swaying beat during the chorus make this song wicked fun.
“I Got You” is a hit, simple as that. As it turns out, it was designed to be a comforting call to those who have been hurt in previous relationships. This is a song that says, “I am not like the others and I will take care of you.” You might not guess this right off the bat when you listen to it with its very upbeat tempo and party vibe, but the message is evident in the song’s premium lyricism.
“Small Doses” is steamy and is one of the slower songs on the album. The purpose of this song is pretty clear through its lyrics (you’ll have to listen to it for information on that). Rexha has a great sense for writing verses, being a songwriter herself, she has created this song in a way that gets to the point without needing anything more.
“F.F.F.” is a whole new type of anthem and with G-Eazy by her side, they are sure to make this one heard. This one is more fun but more of a ‘I have to be in the mood’ kind of song.
“Gateway Drug” is the only low point in the album. This single has the most unique style out of the whole album. I would say it is also the single that sounds the oldest in style with its almost space-like sounds in the background. “Bad B****” which features Ty Dolla $ign, is a great song to listen to. “I’d fallen in love with somebody, and he told me he was tired of all the basic groupie girls. So, I was like, ‘you want a bad bitch. I’m here,’” Rexha said of her song. “I’ve been too good. Now, I want to be naughty and shake things up.” So, if you are looking to do a 180 in personality, this is the song to listen to.
Bebe Rexha is definitely not holding back with the music. Each song has a great individual feel and generally, work fantastically together. Bebe Rexha’s album is exciting and sexy, I hope she puts out several more singles before the end of the semester. This album is now available on Spotify. It is made up of six songs and only spans about twenty minutes, but it is guaranteed that you will be putting it on repeat.
