2. Better Mistakes (2021)
“For the most part, the production leans in on the standard blend of pop and R&B melodies, usually accompanied by trap beats. Some songs delve further into the emo-inspired side of the trap, having a more introspective lens in the lyrics and maybe a guitar riff leading the rhythm here and there. “Sacrifice” is the only high energy offering: a house song appealing to the European mainstream led by a driving piano riff and drop, complete with a pitch-shifted but catchy hook. The ballads are thickly laden with delicate guitar and strings, though are still grounded into the album’s general sound design by their drum patterns, throbbing synth lines, or light trap influences. Perhaps the only missing trend is the disco revival which is understandable as it is, outside of “Future Nostalgia” and a handful of one-off singles, far from the dominant trend in the mainstream.”
1. Expectations (2018)
“This is a very interesting album. Even though she was apparently big 2 years ago, I only discovered Rexha today for the first time, from her song “I’m A Mess”- a deliciously creepy and catchy track that I can’t decide if I love, hate or am indifferent to. I watched a couple of her other music videos before listening to a whole album. “Meant To Be” was pleasant and has a very infectious hook, but is a little overproduced. “I Got You” just struck me as not a very good song.”
