Known for penning hits like "The Monster" and Cash Cash's "Take Me Home," Brooklyn singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha is finally ready to step out as a solo performer. Set to unveil her video for debut single "I Can't Stop Drinking About You" on August 12, the Albanian-American talent stopped by Trending 10 to chat about the song's concept and inspiration.
Admitting that "I Can't Stop Drinking About You" developed out of a failed relationship that left her in a dark, "messed up place," Rexha explained how unworthy the subject of the song often made her feel.
"I had a guy who treated me like an option, so I left him like a choice," she concluded, clearly in a much happier and healthier mindset these days.
Rexha also discussed her songwriting process and whether it's difficult to give away songs to other artists.
"It's hard, sometimes, when you write a song because it's like your baby," she said. "But it doesn't fit the sound sometimes, or it's not the style you're going for—the direction that you're going for. It may work for an artist like Eminem or Rihanna, so I'm not really that reluctant."
