Grammy®-nominated singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha, whose multi-platinum chart topping success across the board in rock, country, dance, electronic, hip-hop and R&B is unprecedented in today’s pop music landscape, pushes the boundaries once again with her new single “Last Hurrah.” On February 25th, the morning after the Oscars, Bebe’s debut performance of “Last Hurrah” will take place on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Ryan, live from the Oscars stage.
“Last Hurrah” sets the stage for Bebe’s upcoming second album, the eagerly awaited follow-up to Expectations, her RIAA gold 2018 debut album. The LP contained her career-defining global smash “Meant To Be” (featuring Florida Georgia Line) nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at this week’s 61st annual Grammy Awards®, where Bebe was also nominated for Best New Artist.
“‘Last Hurrah’ is about vices. We all have them. It’s not just about smoking or drinking, it’s about love, food or any of our bad habits. It’s our final anthem to all our vices as we seek a new tomorrow and a better us. And then do it all again tomorrow.” – Bebe Rexha
“Ahhhh I’m SO ready for you guys to hear this song!!” tweeted Bebe to her millions of followers last Thursday, as she revealed the single artwork for “Last Hurrah,” along with the official February 15th release date. “The artwork for the single features a close-up of the singer bathed in red light and wearing what appears to be a crown of thorns,” Billboard.com reported immediately; read the full story HERE.
