There’s a theme happening right now in pop music…I’ll call it #NumbThePain Pop.
You might not recognize Bebe’s name, but you probably know her work: The rising Albanian-American singer-songwriter has already penned a bunch of tracks for our favorite pop stars, including Eminem and Rihanna‘s “The Monster,” Selena Gomez‘s “Like A Champion” and Nikki Williams‘ “Glowing” — and she’s featured on Cash Cash‘s club smash, “Take Me Home.”
But judging by “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” Bebe’s own debut single, produced by The Monsters and the Strangerz, she’s about to have quite the pop career of her own.
The aching electronic production sees Bebe coping with the reality of cheating beau (or is she the side chick?) above an atmospheric guitar strum and a gentle electronic pulse — at first: “You say I feel like heaven on earth, but you’d never know what heaven was if it wasn’t for…her,” she bitterly resigns. (Great Godney REFERENCE, Bebe!)
As the track builds, Bebe starts to loudly lose control: “Pour a shot in my glass and I’ll forget forever!” she wails, showcasing her powerful chops before diving into a blistering wall of electronic sound. (Not an annoyingly cliché EDM kind — it’s an appropriate amount, I’d say.) It’s a solid debut, that’s for sure.
Are you up for a round?
