Who is Bebe Rexha? Meet the NFL Thanksgiving halftime performer for Bills vs. Lions

There’s nothing quite like a Thanksgiving Day concert.

The ambiance, the colors, the joy; it always tends to be an enticing experience, especially when there’s football involved.

The Lions are hosting yet another Turkey Day extravaganza, this time against the high-octane Bills. If that’s not enough to get you out of your seat, then the halftime performer should.

Detroit enlisted Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Bebe Rexha to put her vocal chops to the test in front of a sold-out crowd.

Rexha, who has been streamed more than three billion times, will be joined on stage by EDM icon David Guetta, the sort of clash of musical stylings that should make for an entertaining mix.

With that, here’s everything you need to know about Rexha, a talented songstress that has never strayed too far from her roots over the course of her career.

Who is Bebe Rexha?

When looking at some of the biggest pop-rap mash-ups in the 2010s, Rexha’s name was an ever-present.

The 33-year-old Brooklyn native with Albanian roots made serious waves in the music industry after lending her pen to Eminem and Rihanna for the 2015 smash hit “The Monster.” She parlayed that into high-profile features on G-Eazy’s “Me, Myself & I” and Martin Garrix’s “In The Name of Love” in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

Rexha has kept it going in the years since, teaming up with country duo Florida Georgia Line in 2017 for “Meant To Be”, a tune that racked up well over a billion streams en route to a diamond certification.

Rexha’s music has spurned countless viral moments, with her recent collaboration with Guetta — “I’m Good (Blue)” — gaining serious traction as a TikTok anthem.

With the game kicking off at around 12:30 p.m. ET, expect Rexha and Guetta to take the stage around 2 p.m. ET. The first half will likely take around 90 minutes to complete.
