New Yorker, Bebe Rexha is making waves on the music scene. Before becoming the rising star we know, she performed in musicals and even wrote the number one hit “The Monster,” sung by Eminem and Rihanna in 2013. Bebe also performed in the band Black Cards with famous Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz. At the age of 25, Rexha’s distinct sound can be heard in songs such as “Hey Mama,” with well known artists David Guetta and Nicki Minaj. Recently, Bebe Rexha released her debut EP in May, 2015 titled I Don’t Wanna Grow Up, which includes the new single “Sweet Beginnings.”
In “Sweet Beginnings,”Bebe expresses wanting to go back to her younger days, or “sweet beginnings.” The song alludes to a sort of disappointment, possibly within a relationship that maybe seemed like a good idea at first. Rexha sings, “I wanna go back to the sweet surrender of you,” which conveys the outlook that feelings can be deceiving; something you wanted so badly may not be what’s best for you. When first listening to “Sweet Beginnings,” the initial noticeable element is the instrumental that plays in the background, it connects very well with Rexha’s voice, which is comparable to Ellie Goulding’s mellow tone and high-pitched softness. The song is made up of many ironic metaphors, such as, “it’s like you’re allergic to your medication,” or “like a firehouse burning to the ground” that create melancholy undertones throughout the single. It’s an awesome song to workout to or even just jam out to on a sunny day.
Bebe Rexha has captivated the world with her wonderful talents and has covered many different aspects of the musical landscape. She has quite a journey ahead of her and we will be on the watch!
