Bebe's current smash, 'Meant To Be' featuring Florida Georgia Line, peaked at #1 on the Australian iTunes chart and #2 on the ARIA chart. It is also the most played track on Australian radio for 2018, remaining at #1 on the official airplay chart for 6 consecutive weeks. Additionally, Meant To Be has taken the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Chart for 18 consecutive weeks, making this the longest consecutive #1 run for a female ever on this chart.

In December, the track debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Chart, marking Bebe as the first female in history to debut atop it.

Review of Bebe Rexha - Expectations



Bebe Rexha’s debut album has been a long time in the making but the New York singer-songwriter’s hard work has finally paid off. ‘Expectations’ is a bold and eclectic body of work that hears her showcasing her RNB roots along with her pop-rock polish. Opening with the power ballad ‘Ferrari’ she offers a rhythmic production that incorporates gritty guitar riffs and big drums. The emotional self-reflective track will have you feeling empowered after a first listen which perfectly leads into the ultimate vibey anthem ‘I’m A Mess’. There is a reason why this song has been selected as the next single and that’s because it has HIT written all over it. It explores the feeling of not feeling you’re enough and embracing your vulnerabilities and realising they are strengths. ‘2 Souls On Fire’ continues the rhythmic sound with a Camila Capello inspired vocal delivery that will have your body moving, grooving and shaking. This also has the potential to break commercial radio and I surprisingly don’t hate Quavo’s verse, so that’s a first. ‘Shining Star’ incorporates a latin production with a pop polish but compared to the previous tracks it is a little skippable. She quickly recovers with the vulnerable pop ballad ‘Knees’ that asks for someone to be honest not just to you but to themselves if they aren't in love anymore. It’s moments like this and ‘Sad’ where her vocals and songwriting really shine. ‘Self Control’ is a ‘Despacito’ inspired banger that will no doubt find it’s way to radio but it’s the anthem ‘I Got You’ which still deserves justice on the charts and radio as it’s easily the strongest track she’s ever released. But for some reason ‘Meant To Be’ reigned the charts for way too long and heard her embody a country sound which is a little confusing in comparison to the rest of the record. But while the first half of the record is strong and full of memorable moments it’s the second half which greatly disappoints. Tracks like ‘Mine’, ‘Steady, ‘Don’t Get Any Close’, ‘Grace’ and ‘Pillow’ lack the same impact the rest of the album delivered and are easily forgettable. I wanted more empowering rhythmic moments that made tracks like ‘I’m A Mess’ and ‘I Got You’ so special. But sadly after you listen to ‘Sad’ you milsewell turn the album off and just pretend that she released an incredible 7 track EP instead. I still believe that Bebe Rexha is one of the most promising pop starts because she has an authentic honesty the translates into her songwriting as well as delivering a cool rhythmic production that makes her live shows unforgettable.
