Bebe Rexha is ready to move on, but first… one “Last Hurrah.”
After dropping her full-length debut Expectations last year (“I’m A Mess” deserved more, tbh), the Grammy-nominated starlet wasted no time hopping right back in the studio to record a follow-up — and “Last Hurrah” is our first taste of new material and potential introduction to her sophomore LP.
“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…,” Bebe declares in the song’s opening lines. She’s looking to make make better choices in 2019, but not without one last go round: “This is my last hurrah, once I start/ I ain’t gonna stop ‘tiI I go too far/ Last hurrah and it’s okay/ Maybe tomorrow I won’t feel this pain/ Last hurrah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah…“
Bebe is always at her best when she being a little bit of a messy queen (see “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You“ and “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy“), and “Lash Hurrah” is certainly no exception. She’s owning it.
