It’s finally here! Today, Diamond-certified, Grammy®-nominated, global superstar Bebe Rexha unleashes her anticipated sophomore album, ‘Better Mistakes,’ via Warner Records. Get it HERE.
The music video for “Break My Heart Myself” featuring Travis Barker made its global broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Viacom CBS Times Square Billboard today.
About the album, Bebe commented, “This is it! It’s everything I’ve always wanted an album to be. I’m not holding anything back about my life and who I am. I felt like all of this time and work allowed me to say everything I needed to. I hope you all love it as much as I do. It really is Bebe fucking Rexha.”
To celebrate the release, the pop disruptor will headline and host her first-ever livestream, A Night With Bebe Rexha: The Better Mistakes Livestream Concert, on Thursday, May 20 at 6pm PT/9pm ET. She’s gearing up to perform hits from the new record for the very first time. Tickets are available HERE with exclusive merch packages. Audiences may enjoy repeat viewings for up to 24 hours after the livestream airs.
Bebe also continues her television takeover next week. She recently delivered the scorching late-night TV debut performance of “Sacrifice” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Next up, she sits down with the women of ABC’s The View for a chat on May 10 before appearing on CBS This Morning for an interview on May 11. Also, on May 11, she’ll be a special guest on FOX’s The Real.
Making headlines, Bebe recently sat down for an exclusive joint interview with GRAMMY® Award-winning legend Alicia Keys, who described ‘Better Mistakes’ as “a collection of songs about lived experiences and lessons learned under the limelight.”
Bebe initially teased this chapter with the 2020 single “Baby, I’m Jealous” [feat. Doja Cat], eclipsing 70 million Spotify streams and 54 million views on the blockbuster music video.
Bebe architected a pop opus with Better Mistakes. The opener “Break My Heart Myself” [feat. Travis Barker] hinges on manic bursts of energy and her signature vocal acrobatics uplifted by stadium-ready drums courtesy of legendary blink-182 stickman Travis Barker. Creaky guitar cuts through a glitchy beat on “Die For A Man” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert] as Bebe promises, “I would never die for a man, change who I am.” Meanwhile, elusive galactic hip-hop titan Lil Uzi Vert rolls through with a raw and rare cameo. Then, there’s “Amore” [feat. Rick Ross]. Her confident vocals set the stage for Rozay to pull up and do what he does with a gruff and laidback flow. The record culminates on “Mama.” Massive orchestral strings resound as she delivers one final anthem, this time, for her mom. The final confession says it all, “I messed up again, but I swear my heart is as gold as it gets.” Check out the tracklisting below.
Powerhouse songwriter/producer Justin Tranter and Jeff Levin served as the album’s Executive Producers with Bebe co-writing every song on the album. Better Mistakes also boasts production from the likes of Mike Elizondo, Jussifer, Michael Kennan, The Six, Lostboy Crow, and more.
With her show-stopping voice and straight-from-the-heart lyricism, Bebe has emerged as pop’s most dynamic, diverse, and disruptive outlier on her own terms. Her vocals and pen powered the RIAA Diamond-certified (10x Platinum) crossover mega-smash “Meant To Be” featuring Florida Georgia Line. Last week, the Grammy®-Nominated smash hit officially joined the extremely exclusive ONE BILLION STREAMS club at Spotify, marking Bebe’s second song to cross this magic line. Bebe and Martin Garrix’s “In The Name of Love” surpassed one billion streams on the platform earlier last year. Bebe now becomes only one of 10 female artists who have achieved two or more billion streaming tracks on Spotify.
Beyond over a dozen platinum singles and collaborations, Bebe’s 2018 debut, Expectations, reached platinum status and spawned two platinum singles—“I’m A Mess” and “I Got You.” Writing at a prolific pace and pushing herself with every subsequent song, she’s sacrificed to get to the forefront of pop—and she’s going to continue to reign there with her new album.
