You may remember Bebe Rexha as being the catchy and provocative vocalist in the G-Eazy hit single, “Me, Myself, and I.”
Well, guess what? This power duo is back at it again in a new track they have been working on behind-the-scenes. Via Snapchat, the pop star songstress shared a few clips of the new single “F*ck Fake Friends” that the two are collaborating on, and from what we were given, it seems like it’s going to be another hit. You can tell that it’s going to be a little less dynamic as “Me, Myself, and I,” which hit No. 7 spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 Charts, but it is going to have more of that “All My Friends” by Snakehips, Kehlani, and Chance the Rapper vibe to it. In fact, Rexha very much reminds me of Kehlani, edgy, cool, and confident. G-Eazy will of course have killer rap verses that will strike us again and again against the backdrop of synths, electric tunes and hiphop/R&B beats and ballads. Rexha sings “F*ck fake friends. We don’t need ‘em / Only thing they’re good for is leavin’.” Rexha’s recognition came a few years back when she teamed up with Nicki Minaj for the track “No Broken Hearts.”
The songwriter himself did not get into music the way he is now at first. He first was a record producer, as he was a full-time student at Loyola University in New Orleans at the time. As he did more work to find his voice and sound, he gained some attention and recognition throughout the area for his rap and hip hop productions around the East Bay Area. Here he worked with artists from the likes of Lil B and The Cataracs. Needless to say, these two artists, Rexha and Eazy don’t need an introduction, but figured I’d give some background before we get all excited for this forthcoming release.
Also, fun fact that I noticed while listening to the notorious song “Me, Myself, and I;” in the one of G-Eazy’s verses, he actually spits the title line to the new record:
“I just need to be alone, I just need to be at home
Understand what I’m speaking on if time is money I need a loan
But regardless I’ll always keep keepin’ on
F*ck fake friends, we don’t take L’s we just make M’s
While y’all follow, we just make trends
I’m right back to work when that break ends…”
So, they must have been hinting to us that this new track would be the sequel to this one.
Whether this track is going to be another big-timer like the last collaboration pieces, is unknown, but what we do know is that these two are a powerful music team, and that their pairing should bring about a remarkable track either way.
