What a night! This week's Hits Sessions was fierce, fun, and super friendly - just like Bebe Rexha - who took the stage at Revolution Live in downtown Fort Lauderdale, courtesy of Lexus of Pembroke Pines, Lexus of North Miami, and of course the new HITS 973!
She is definitely one of the most down to earth and dopest singer/songwriters out right now. You may be a die hard Bebe fan, or you may be a fan of hers and not even know it. How? Her voice is one of the key elements in some of your favorite songs like "Hey Mama" (Guetta/Nicki Minaj), "Take Me Home" (Cash Cash), "Me Myself and I" with G-Eazy and more. If none of those ring a bell, maybe you've heard "Monster" by Eminem ft Rihanna..you know the one - the number 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit was cowritten by Bebe Rexha herself and was originally titled "Monster Under My Bed".
Back to the other night! Bebe interviewed on stage with Frankie P, and discussed her story and records, stopping from time to time to perform pieces of her records acoustically, with her guitarist Ray. Her voice was strong & unique, and her personality and humanity continued to come through when a fan asked about one of her older songs, "Take Me Home" - she was honest about not even remembering all the words while belting it out!
Her newest collaboration is with Martin Garrix, called "In the Name of Love" - listen below! If you weren't at Hits Sessions and haven't quite gotten the picture of how Bebe Rexha can sweep you off your feet, maybe THIS picture will help you better understand:
:P I wasn't kidding, or being figurative, she literally swept me off my feet!!! Whether she swept you off your feet literally or figuratively, let me know about your experience in the comments section below! If you couldn't make it, here video from the event, so you can get the whole experience even if you weren't with us!
My other favorite part of Hits Sessions is meeting and connecting with so many of the amazing HITS 973 listeners! The next Hits Sessions is starring Ruth B, and is going down September 1st at Revolution Live, make sure you DWNLD the HITS973 App right on your phone to win your tickets!!
