Bebe Rexha Debuts Powerful Ballad, “Gone”: Idolator Premiere
This year in music is not over just yet: Bebe Rexha has an early Christmas surprise for you!
We know and love the moody pop singer-songwriter best for her incredible work scribing “The Monster” for Eminem and Rihanna and supplying her powerhouse vocals on Cash Cash‘s “Take Me Home,” as well as her thunderous electronic break-up anthem, “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You.” And while she’s served up some big emotion over huge beats in the past, she’s decided to break it all down on an unexpectedly fragile ballad with her new song, “Gone,” which we’re premiering right here on Idolator this afternoon.
The tender, piano and string-filled ballad was produced and co-written by Frequency and Alias, the same team behind Eminem’s “The Monster.” In fact, the song was even recorded the exact same week as “The Monster”! “Numb it down to the core, ’cause love don’t live here anymore,” she sadly croons off the top of the solemn track, displaying more vulnerability than ever before.
“Gone,” as well as “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy,” will be available on iTunes tomorrow. In the meantime, she’ll be answering fan questions today starting at 1pm PT / 4pm ET on Twitter. Make sure to tweet questions to Bebe using the #AskBebe tag!
