One of the best ARTISTS today! truly amazing
A good mix of her older sweeter tone with the modernized pop hip hop style she has adopted. Everything Bebe makes is lit, and this is no exception. Her voice really carries the tunes.
Could she put out better music? Always, and undoubtedly. But does that mean this music isn't great? Nope, it's still great!
Such an improvement!
With her latest release and second installation in her album, Bebe Rexha shows a completely different side of herself and her music than the gritty urban pop showcased in part 1. The brighter and more energetic AYF2 sees the rising songstress making her way through a diverse set of selections and guest appearances. "That's It" is a bit of a stretch in lyricism but shows its strength in its catchy trap beat and impressive guest appearances, while "I Got Time" is a victory lap for Rexha as she recounts her success on the track most reminiscent in style to her previous EP. "The Way I Are" is a turn for the worse, a hodgepodge of cliched lyrics and references, a gaping grammar mistake to force through a chorus, and a pointless Lil Wayne feature, although admittedly the story behind it is interesting and speaks for Rexha's personality. "(Not) The One" is breezy trop-pop at its best, with amazing vocals and production as well as lyrics that are equally equipped for thinking about and just dancing to. I have to say I was surprised at "Comfortable", since dancehall is a step away from her usual domain and when I first listened to it I was shocked because it sounded like she was trying to directly imitate singers with island roots, but the more I heard it the more I heard her natural voice come through. It's rare to find a duet that paints both sides of the story so well, and that was a strength in this song. Kranium was a great vocal assist, and both artists suited the laid-back, sunshiny vibe of the song very well while also acknowledging in their performance that it was a breakup song. The balance there was handled beautifully. The album's closer, a country-leaning duet with Florida Georgia Line, was shocking for all of us, but is undoubtedly loveable. Horrible cliches in Bebe's verse aside, the message is very memorable and the best on the album. I personally don't listen to this one often because I just can't do country as hardcore as FGL, but I appreciate the song if I happen to hear it. The real question of this album, though, is "is this album the real Bebe, or did we leave her when we left AYF1?" As comfortable as I think she was in the consistancy of pt 1, and as much as the edge and darkness of it appealed to many, pt 1 was camouflage, it was a way to fit in. And while many have criticized pt 2 for having too many different sounds and styles, AYF2 is Rexha at her most confident and most at home, experimenting, breaking barriers, and more importantly, having fun. The brightness and spirit of this EP could not be more in the spotlight, and that is what makes it truly successful
Like I need more😏😏😏

Can't wait for her full length album
The first three songs are garbage...EAR TORTURE! The last three are ok, pretty decent. (Not) the One is my jam.
Should Not Be Connected to AYF Pt 1!

There is only one, maybe two, songs that could have been on AYF Pt 1 ("They Way I Are" and *maybe* "That's It"). What happened, Bebe? Please do not sell out. If my husband and I--which means this review speaks for two customers--had to rate on just "Meant to Be," this would be one star. People love your fresh, funky, sexy, dancable, grindable pop music--not for bad country music that cannot even be called crossover. Let T-Swift do her thing and you go back to doing do you.
