Bebe Rexha

Release date: April 16

Record label: Warner Records

Bebe Rexha has given listeners the opportunity to hear her jarring, nasally voice before, so when she says, “Sabotage,” she might as well be speaking in career terms. Although Rexha has her moments in the track with a few delicate, well-executed high notes, she deflates its potential with the aggressive, coarse sounds of her belting.
