Bebe Rexha has released an acoustic version of her current single, “I’m Going to Show You Crazy,” and she is supporting the acoustic track with an official music video. Rexha released the original version of the single on December 23, 2014, and the song was well received for its brazen lyrics, strong production, and evocative vocal performance. The acoustic version places the emphasis on the song’s lyrical content with Rexha proclaiming “so what if I’m f***ing crazy / and I don’t need your quick fix / I don’t want your prescriptions / just cause you say I’m crazy / so what if I’m f**king crazy?” 

In the video, Rexha sings in the lyrics in a glamorous dressing room, her tearstained face in high contrast to the luxury around her. As the track progresses, the emotional musician strips her face of makeup before remaking herself and ending the video with a smile, convincing viewers that she is indeed ready to “show you crazy.” An official music video is still in the works for the original rendition of the track, and its release is expected in the coming weeks.

Bebe Rexha is currently gearing up to embark upon the 2015 Vans Warped Tour alongside fellow alternative, rock, indie, and pop musicians such as New Beat Fund, As It Is, and Beautiful Bodies. The tour kicks off on April 7th in Los Angeles and finishes up on August 8th in Auburn, Washington. The artist is also currently putting the finishing touches on her debut album. “I’m Going to Show You Crazy” is the album’s second official single following the release of “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You,” which was released in March of 2014.

Before pursuing a solo career, Rexha appeared alongside Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy in an electro band called Black Cards. The duo formed the group in 2010 and released an EP in 2012, though Rexha left the band shortly thereafter. Warner Brothers signed Rexha in 2013, and she worked with them as a songwriter with her music appearing on albums for the likes of Selena Gomez (“Like A Champion”), Tinashe (“All Hands On Deck”), and David Guetta (“Hey Mama” and “Yesterday”). Her song, “Monster Under The Bed,” written alongside fellow musician Jon Bellion, went on to be picked up by Eminem. In his hands, Rihanna sang Rexha’s hook. The duet topped the charts in 2013.

FDRMX Eyes: From Seattle comes the rock band Shotty. Their music video for “I’m Glad It’s Over” features old school video games such as the Legend of Zelda and Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
