SINGLE REVIEW: Bebe Rexha – Last Hurrah

Bebe Rexha seemed to have it all together. She was an artist with a distinct sound that didn’t seem to compromise her vision. But over time she has “evolved” to fit into the current trends and it’s a bit confusing to explain who she is as an artist because over time she has released things that are a little all over the place. It’s safe to say that she is versatile as an artist but her consistency is missing. After her debut album ‘Expectations’ didn’t make the impact that was expected (no pun intended), she has quickly returned with another new song. ‘Last Hurrah’ is a radio accessible song that returns to the polished pop formula she has perfected in the past with a slight country beat influence thrown into the mix. She’s done this to try win over the ‘Meant To Be’ fans again and has even slightly changed her vocal delivery to focus on this. It’s an interesting song that has strong potential but the delivery is very safe. I wanted her to do something a little unpredictable and experimental but instead she lays very low-key. I was waiting for the moment that captivated me like in ‘I Got You’ and ‘I’m A Mess’ where I was just like “OH YES” but it never came. The strongest thing about this song was the lyrics, and that isn’t much of a surprise because she has always been a killer songwriter. “I know I’ve said it all before but it won’t hurt to do it all once more”.
