SONG OF THE DAY: Bebe Rexha – I Can’t Stop Drinking About You
By: DJ Ricky Sixx
This is the dubstep pop song that will go all the way. Bebe Rexha is best known as the vocalist with Cash Cash “Take Me Home,” as well as for writing the darkly personal lyrics of “Monster” which became a hit for Eminem and Rihanna. She brings that same intensely personal and confessional tone to “I Can’t Stop Drinking About You” when she sings about using alcohol to mentally escape a failing relationship. No, it’s not healthy, but the sheer rawness of her lyrics over the lush intro suck you in until you are slammed in the face with the agressive dubstep beats of the chorus. Her husky yet fragile voice also stands out with a mix of power supported by the pretty tones of the verse. For club consumption, the Jump Smokers mix electro with a bit of trap for an energetic take that matches the duality of the original. Additional mixes go stadium (Chachi), big room (Quintino), rocking electro (Mikael Willis), and dirty trap (Grabbitz). A side note, as great as she sounds on the record, Bebe sounds even more incredible live. Follow her on Twitter and check her out when she performs in your town.
