Bebe Rexha Poses For ‘Nylon,’ Talks Writing “Last Hurrah”
Bebe Rexha is kicking off April with a new photoshoot for Nylon magazine. Out today (April 1), the 29-year-old stuns in the glam set. Shot by Ramona Rosales, she serves supermodel vibes in a variety of chic, structural outfits. The end result is one of her best collections to date. And the accompanying interview is just as strong. In it, the “Meant To Be” hitmaker offers some insight into her creative process. Reflecting on current single “Last Hurrah,” she explained how the lyrics ended up mirroring her current outlook. “Sometimes, when I write songs, I have to be really careful,” she explained. “I can write them in a moment when I’m not really going through it at that very moment, and then the song comes to life.”
“And this song, it’s literally like, ‘I’m done with the drinking, I’m done with the smoking/ I’m done with the playing, I’m done with the joking/ I’m done with the ladies, I’m done with the fellas.’ And it’s, like, me, right now!” Clearly, the song also resonates with the masses. Since dropping in February, it dominated streaming services. With more than 48 million Spotify streams alone, it could very well become the diva’s next mega-hit. That’s not all, though. In the interview Bebe also speaks about the importance of using her voice to stand for what she believes in. “I don’t need to be just another pretty girl that makes a million dollars. There’s nothing wrong with that, to make money and be pretty and make music, but I want to know that I’m doing something out in the world.”
