Bebe Rexha has dropped her new song “I’m A Mess.” The 28-year-old singer’s electro-pop jam alternates between self-loathing and optimism. While Bebe sings the lyrics “Everything’s gonna be alright,” the chorus quickly switches to self-doubt with lyrics like, “I’m a mess, I’m a loser, I’m a hater, I’m a user.”
Bebe’s debut LP Expectations is set to hit shelves June 22nd. The album also includes her hit collaboration with Florida Georgia Line, “Meant to Be,” which topped Billboard’s Hot Country chart last fall.
Rexha debuted “I’m a Mess” onstage, along with other new songs, on Thursday during a release party for her Apple Music On the Record short film.
Meanwhile, Bebe is the latest cover star for Teen Vogue’s special music issue series. Inside, she opens up about suffering with anxiety since she was a youngster, and admits she often cries and has a therapist to help her deal with the pressures of the “crazy” lifestyle she leads.
“I cry a lot. It’s tough. I have my own therapist and I have people I talk to. It’s an everyday battle, I feel,” Bebe shares. “I don’t wanna feed into it, but my lifestyle is so crazy. When I first went to my first year of college, I was so intense. I didn't know how to handle it and be around people.”
“I was super anxious all the time. I was anxious when I was a little girl, I just didn't know what it was. Finally, when I figured it out, I was like, ‘Oh. Finally, I understand. I have anxiety’,” she adds.
Bebe will be performing this Friday morning (6/22) on Good Morning America's Summer Concert Series.
