Bebe Rexha has by no means been averse to sharing uncooked emotion. However with Higher Errors, her second album, she dug even deeper.
“I used to be coming to an acceptance of myself and being like ‘That is what I’ve gone by, that is who I’m,'” the singer/songwriter tells GRAMMY.com over Zoom from her dwelling in Los Angeles. What that meant, Rexha says, was dissecting her psychological well being points additional and admitting her self-sabotaging and jealous tendencies.
However Higher Errors got here with some familiarity, too. Rexha, who’s discovered a handful of hits with everybody from Florida Georgia Line to The Chainsmokers, wasn’t shy about having a cohort of collaborators on the 13-track document. Everybody from Doja Cat to Travis Barker are featured on Higher Errors. And as all the time, Rexha’s explosive vocals dominate the album, which oscillates between pop, hip-hop and rock.
To mark the discharge of Higher Errors on Might 7, Rexha spoke to GRAMMY.com about working with Barker, psychological well being and the toughest track to placed on the album.
