At one point, she even talked about how her life has been while in quarantine following the shelter-in-place orders across the country during the pandemic.


“I’ve been testing new recipes, cooking a lot, and being super positive and doing things that feel good for my soul, [trying] to stay creative…,” Rexha shared. “At one point, I was really bored. Now I get to do this, so I feel so much better.”

The “In The Name of Love” hitmaker also revealed, with the help of Zoom she has been secretly working with record producer and songwritter, David Guetta.

“I’ve actually been writing with him a lot through Zoom,” Bebe shared. “We have some amazing songs that we’ve been working on.”

“I’m a big fan of David… He’s been playing some songs that he’s been working on, and it’s really like he’s been in a really, like, interesting headspace,” she added. “I’m loving everything he’s doing.”

Rexha then shared the exciting news she “just finished” her album and “it’s in the mixing process.”

“I’m really excited about it,” the superstar singer explained. “It took me two years, and obviously when the coronavirus thing happened, it kinda put a stall on it… My fans are getting very frustrated, but I’m like, ‘I promise it’s gonna be worth it!’ I really love this album more than any other album.”
