When people talk about red carpet events, their topics of conversation usually just revolve around which celebrities showed up and who they were wearing. But singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha gave people something more to talk about.
Getting Real at the Grammys
The 30-year-old musician shared about her new album and its very personal origins and inspirations. Speaking with Ryan Seacrest, the black suit-clad Rexha revealed how her latest project would delve deeper into topics like relationship struggles, mental health, and inner strength by translating them into upbeat pop songs. She particularly hinted that she would tackle her being bipolar though some may not be able to realize it at first because of the genre she writes in. The album will reportedly be released in 2020.
This isn’t the first time that Rexha has shared details of her mental health particularly her bipolar diagnosis. Back in April of 2019, she notably declared how she’s no longer ashamed of her condition.
Delving Into Deep Stuff
She then shared how every song in her upcoming album would have something to do with some of her own fears and insecurities. In relation to this, Seacrest asked Rexha what her greatest fear is and she answered with something that a lot of people, celebrity or not, can relate to. She responded by saying how she’s afraid of failing and not being good enough. What more, these fears go with her even when she’s at events like the Grammys.
Last Major Release
Her new album comes two years after her debut, ‘Expectations’. The release came after she’s already seen some success releasing her own singles and writing for bigger musical acts like rapper Eminem and Rihanna.
‘Expectations’ performed relatively well and produced three official singles, one of which became her first top 40 hit as a solo artist. Critically, the album received mostly favorable reviews with one critic even praising it as a step up from her previous EP releases.
