Bebe Rexha Renews Publishing Deal With BMG


Multi-platinum hit singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha has renewed her worldwide co-publishing deal with BMG. Since initially signing with BMG and bursting onto the scene in 2013, Rexha has accumulated more than 11 million overall single sales, 3.35 billion total global streams and a radio audience of more than 10 billion. Her latest single, 'Meant To Be' with Florida Georgia Line, is currently topping the Billboard Hot Country chart and has amassed over 440M global streams to date.

Said Rexha, "Zach Katz, Andrew Gould, Jon Chen and the entire BMG family have been some of my biggest champions and cheerleaders. We've had so much success together and that's due to their creative energy and love. I'm so excited to extend our relationship."

Adam Mersel, Bebe Rexha's manager at First Access Entertainment, said, "Zach and BMG are perfect partners -- kind, passionate, talented and fiercely supportive. Looking very forward to this next phase and welcoming them as true creative partners for Bebe and our entire team."

Zach Katz, BMG US President, Repertoire & Marketing, said, "Working with and seeing Bebe's career explode through the years has been a great source of pride for BMG. The tireless work she's put into her songwriting craft is evident in the enormous success she's achieved, becoming one of the most in demand writers and exciting new artists today."

Rexha, whom Billboard calls "one of the most daring artists of 2017," burst onto the scene in 2013 when she penned the song 'Monster', which became a worldwide hit for Eminem and Rihanna, and went RIAA quadruple-Platinum stateside. Since then, she co-wrote and carried the instantly recognizable hook for the double-Platinum 'Hey Mama', by David Guetta, Nicki Minaj and Afrojack, which has over 1 billion YouTube/VEVO views and was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for Top Dance/Electronic Song. She also hit Number One both on the Billboard Pop and Rap charts with her Platinum-selling smash single, 'Me, Myself & I' with G-Eazy. Her last single, 'I Got You' has more than 229 Million YouTube/VEVO views, 'No Broken Hearts', featuring Nicki Minaj, has more than 232 million YouTube/VEVO views; and she is featured on Martin Garrix's single, 'In The Name of Love', which has amassed more than 287 million YouTube/VEVO views. Rexha released her second EP, "All Your Fault: Part 1," and the follow-up, "All Your Fault: Part 2," in 2017 to rave reviews. In addition, she also is featured on Louis Tomlinson's track, 'Back to You', off of his upcoming solo album.
