In case you've been particularly busy today, were here to tell you about Bebe Rexha’s newest single, “Baby, I’m Jealous” featuring Doja Cat, which has officially dropped.
Rexha expressed, “I wrote about embracing my insecurities,” adding, “it’s about the way social media has heightened my jealousy which can affect how I feel about myself. We are constantly flooded with the highlights of other people’s lives, and at times I find myself comparing my worth and beauty to others.” According to Bebe, “it’s part of the human process to experience jealousy—ultimately, this is an anthem to embrace those feelings as a form of empowerment.”
Preach sista! Don’t we know it, and now we have a brand new song for it. Even though the song’s lyrics explore the negativities of living in a digital age, the bass loaded tune is both funky and playful.
On it, Rexha sings, “This is me, a woman in dichotomy / I love me, until I don't / My apologies for looking on your history/ I'm trying to let it go.” Doja Cat’s verse on the self-reflecting track stays right on brand, “waste trainer for a tinier waist / But I can’t help if I like the way food taste,” she raps.
One upside to living in the digital age is the music video, which btw is giving us life. Directed by one of our faves, Hannah Lux Davis, the stunning visual exudes girl power from start to finish, featuring Doja (duh), as well as influencers Charli D’Amelio, Nikita Dragun, and Avani Gregg.
The lady gang start off bejeweled and bedazzled, sitting at a Chinese restaurant having themselves a good old fashion tea-sesh, and we don’t mean the kind you drink. About a minute and a half in, things get weird, a-la Freaky Friday, the fortune cookie scene, and before you know it Bebe's playful lyrics come to life.
Moral of this story, Bebe and Doja came to slay, check out “Baby, I’m Jealous” above.
