Bebe Rexha Premieres New Song “Not 20 Anymore”
- American singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha has unveiled a new song “Not 20 Anymore” along with the music video.
The song is R&B sound. It was written by Bebe Rexha, Michael Pollack, German (Producer), Jordan K. Johnson and Stefan Johnson.
Bebe Rexha first revealed the song during an Instagram livestream.
She said of the song, “'Not 20 anymore' is about me turning thirty and I’m really scared, but I feel like I’m a better lover, I’m a better person than I’ve ever been, I love my body, I love my age. And I think this is really important for women: this is a very strong and empowering song. All my life I’ve been in the music business and people don’t talk about it. Everybody is so scared about their age. All my life I’ve been kinda made to be insecure about my age, especially as a female. We’re always made to feel like that when we get older, we’re uglier. I’m a strong-ass woman.”
- She continued, “I recently had music executive tell me that I was getting too old and that my brand was “confusing!‘ I’m a songwriter and I post sexy pics on my Instagram and that’s not what female songwriters are suppose to do, especially for my age. I’m 29. I’m fed up with being put in a box. I make my own rules. I’m tired of women getting labeled as ”'hags" when they get old and guys get labeled as sexy with age. Anyways I’m turning 30 on August 30 and you know what, I’m not running away from it. l’m not gonna lie about my age or sing songs that I feel will sell better because they sound “younger.” I’m gonna celebrate my age because you know what, I’m wiser, I’m stronger and TRUST ME I’m a much better lover than I was 10 years ago. Picture dedicated to the Exec who said I’m too old to be sexy. Is this too sexy for you?”
She opened for the Jonas Brothers at Madison Square Garden on their Happiness Begins Tour on August 29th. The tour will conclude at The Forum in Inglewood, CA, on December 15th.
