Bebe Rexha Shines On “That’s How You Know”

Bebe Rexha Shines On “That’s How You Know” & "Battle Cry"

Bebe Rexha is becoming pop music’s go to gal.

Coming off the success from her monstrous single with David Guetta and Nicki Minaj for “Hey Mama,” Bebe Rexha finds herself on several more promising songs that very might find a comfortable home in the Top 10.


Australian DJ/singer Havana Brown teams with Rexha and producer Savi on “Battle Cry,” an upbeat anthemic tune that consistently builds up to the colossal chorus before strutting back down to its mild breakdown and back up again. “Battle Cry” is about the sadder side of love, and the sonic roller coaster heard throughout is eerily symbolic.

And I don’t know wanna know the reasons why / I know you deep inside / And I don’t wanna hear the twisted lies / Oh no this is my battle cry

Next, the “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” singer assists Nico & Vinz on their tongue and cheek track “That’s How You Know” with Kid Ink. The vibey mid-tempo tune details a story of never getting things right, a feeling all too familiar for us millennials. It’s a breezy bopper that’s reminiscent of Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney’s “FourFiveSeconds” but enjoyable and frighteningly relatable.

You were the man in college / got a degree in awesome / and had more zeros in your bank than all the Matrix code / now you’re in your mama’s basement / got an excuse for every paycheck / the IRS your new best friend that’s how you know you fucked up
