Bebe Rexha‘s “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy” has one of my favorite messages from the pop songs that have been released this year.
The song finds Rexha battling with mental illness and reeling against traditional methods of treatment. The newly released music video doesn’t stray too much from this, although it isn’t specifically about mental illness.
In the visuals, Rexha is sent to reform school after failing to get along with her prim and proper family members. Once there, she refuses to conform and ends up taking over the school, of course. This is a pop video, remember?
It’s worth noting Bebe Rexha does look absolutely stunning in this video. It’s great to see her coming into her own as an artists. She’s been writing hits for major pop stars and now it looks like it may finally be her time to shine.
(It’s also worth noting the acoustic version of this song is still amazing and way better than the single version.)
