Bebe Rexha Talks Her Favorite Song From Her Upcoming Album 'Expectations'

Bebe Rexha takes the cover of Teen Vogue for their special Music issue series Pass The Mic.

The 28-year-old singer/songwriter opened up about battling anxiety, topping the country music charts, and her upcoming album Expectations. Check it out:

On her upcoming song “Don’t Get Any Closer”: “It’s really true to who I am. I think I have a very hard exterior, but when somebody gets to know me, there’s a soft spot to me. It’s really hard to get to that; I don’t let many people in. That’s what that song is about. It’s very vulnerable. It’s like, I’m scared to let anybody in because you’re gonna see the real, true me and you’re not gonna like me.”

On battling anxiety: “I cry a lot. It’s tough. I have my own therapist and I have people I talk to. It’s an everyday battle, I feel. I don’t wanna feed into it, but my lifestyle is so crazy. When I first went to my first year of college, I was so intense. I didn’t know how to handle it and be around people. I was super anxious all the time. I was anxious when I was a little girl, I just didn’t know what it was. Finally, when I figured it out, I was like, ‘Oh. Finally, I understand. I have anxiety.’”

On topping Country Music charts: “I have immigrant parents, 100% Albanian. I’m not, like, a ‘country artist.’ “The country world is very…I think they want to preserve something, and I don’t disagree with them. But I feel like it’s cool now that different artists are [joining in].”
