From a Struggle Singer/Songwriter to International Hitmaker – Bebe Rexha

Before “The Monster” by Eminem and Rihanna was a #1 Billboard charting hit in a dozen countries and #1 on UK R&B, US Billboard Hot 100, US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (Billboard), US Mainstream Top 40 (Billboard) and US Rhythmic (Billboard), a struggling songwriter in NY was writing a song called “Monster Under My Bed” in her parent’s dining room. Little did Bebe Rexha know that the song would change her life and in a year, Eminem and Rihanna would take the song and make it an international #1 smash hit. This performance from Jimmy Kimmel Live showcases Bebe Rexha’s original version of the song she wrote before she was an international hitmaker.
