Bebe Rexha performs in Tirana

Bebe Rexha was born in Brooklyn New York, from ethnic Albanian Parents who migrated to USA in 1980. Her real name is Bleta, which means ‘bumble bee’ in Albanian, so she used the nickname Bebe. She is a talented songwriter and solo singer. She is renowned for songwriting for artists such as Eminem, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, etc. She is preparing her first album to be released in October 2016.

Bebe Rexha is best known as a featured singer on several Billboard Hot 100 songs, including G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself & I” and David Guetta’s “Hey Mama”. She also co-wrote the chart-topping Eminem and Rihanna single, “The Monster” (among many other songs). In March 2016, she released “No Broken Hearts”, featuring Nicki Minaj.

During her stay in the Albanian capital, Bebe Rexha was presented with “the Key to the city of Tirana” during a ceremony held by the mayor of Tirana, Mr. Erion Veliaj.

The concert was indeed success, and Mother Teresa Square was very crowded. A special moment was when Bebe Rexha said she was from Dibra, Albania, and got emotional and cried.

Another famous singer worldwide, known of Albanian origin and blood, is Rita Ora. She was born in Kosovo and flew to the US during the war in Kosovo. She also performed for the Independence Day concert in Tirana four years ago, on 28 November 2012.

Other artists are emerging mostly from Kosovo, like Era Istrefi, who achieved international recognition after the release of her single “BonBon”, which draws comparisons to the works of Australian performer Sia and Barbadian recording artist Rihanna. We can call this phenomenon an ‘Albanian’ music revolution worldwide.
