The 28-year-old singer is enjoying a string of hits, including “Meant to Be,” her collaboration with Florida Georgia Line. The song broke the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart record this week with 35 weeks at number one. ET caught up with Rexha at Westlake Recording Studios to chat about the record-breaking track.
“It was kind of like… meant to be,” she responded when asked about the track. “That’s so corny! But it’s like it was!”
Now that Rexha is well on her way to being a household name, she and ET broke down how some of her biggest tracks came together, including "Monster," which she wrote for Eminem and Rihanna.
“I was going through a tough time,” she admitted. “And I found this quote online that said ‘we stop looking for monster underneath our beds when we realize that they’re inside of us.' At that time, nobody would answer my phone call, nobody wanted to get in the studio with me. But I wouldn’t give up.”
She also discussed writing the song “Me, Myself and I” with G-Eazy, which turned out to be a pivotal moment in the singer’s career.
“That was my first real, like, moment where… I got the proper feature credit and I was in the music video and it was really special.”
Rexha's album, Expectations, is out now.
