Every dream requires a hustle. Long before she became an inescapable pop presence and one of the industry’s most in-demand songwriters, Bebe Rexha began quietly hustling hard towards a career in music during her childhood in Brooklyn, NY.
Chart topping singer-songwriter and recent “MTV EMAs” host Bebe Rexha is a multi-platinum singer and mega hit songwriter of numerous smashes including “The Monster,” “I Got You” and “Me, Myself & I.” But her path to stardom wasn’t an easy one – filled with countless hours of songwriting (she’s penned huge hits for artists including Eminem, Selena Gomez and Pitbull), collaborating with artists as a featured singer, soul searching, and navigating through the turbulence of the music industry on the journey that catapulted her to solo stardom. The Ride explores the moments that changed Bebe’s life, defined her career, and made her the unique solo power artist she is today. Bebe Rexha: The Ride premieres on MTV Asia on 22 May 2017.
Following years of dedication and diligence, that grind paid off big time in 2013 after she penned “The Monster” in a Harlem studio. The single eventually became a worldwide hit for Eminem and Rihanna – going RIAA quadruple-platinum stateside. Her 2015 debut EP, I Don’t Wanna Grow Up [Warner Bros. Records], boasted the singles “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” and “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy,” which racked up over 52 million Spotify streams in only six months.
To date, she’s accumulated over 10 million overall single sales, 800 million Spotify streams, 1 billion combined YouTube/VEVO views, and reached a radio audience of 7 billion in addition to earning praise from the likes of USA Today, Billboard, MTV and more.
