Rexhars rise up: It’s our girls time!
Unless you’re new around these parts, then you already know I’ve been a Bebe Rexha fan from the moment she debuted with “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” all the way back in 2014. We’ve stuck with her as she’s gone from EDM feature queen (“In The Name Of Love” with Martin Garrix) to hip-hop feature queen (“Me, Myself & I” with G-Eazy) to “this song was #1 for 50 fucking weeks” queen (“Meant To Be” with Florida Georgia Line) – and we’ve loved every moment of it.
Now, after teaming up with Doja Cat on the under-appreciated “Baby, I’m Jealous,” she’s back and all on her own again with: “Sacrifice,” produced by BURNS, the mastermind behind most of Lady Gaga‘s Chromatica (“Rain on Me,” “Sour Candy,” “Replay,” etc.) as well as Britney‘s “Make Me…“.
“Sacrifice” is somewhat new terrirorty for Bebe, as she delivers a winning dance-pop anthem full of bright House piano and confident/vaguely menacing demands for your undivided attention.
“When it comes to me, don’t want no compromise/ This should be the only body on your mind/ When it comes to me, I’m down for life/ So tell me, would you sacrifice?,” she declares across the infectious chorus.
It serves up all the cheese and drama of a properly good pop song and for that we must appreciate. Surely, if Ava Max can dominate with songs like “Kings & Queens” and “My Head & My Heart,” there’s no reason Bebe can’t have a bite of that dance-pop dominance as well.
