Bebe Rexhas halftime performance at the annual NFL game up thanks day, where she sang a mashup of her classics left Detroit a little downcast.
Rexha took the stage after the Detroit lions and Buffalo Bills retreated to their dressing rooms for the mid-match break and performed several of her hit songs, including a rendition of her 2015 David Guetta/Nicki Minaj/Afrojack smash “Hello Mama” amidst a lineup inspired by the 1999 film The Matrix.
The crowd booed Rexha noisily when she stopped singing and began a dance-based breakdown midway through the song. It didn’t seem like they didn’t enjoy her performance though; it was rather that they could not see it.
The 2017 Florida Georgia Line-backed song “Meant to be” served as Rexha’s next transition, and she ended the set with the current hit “I’m Good” (Blue)another record with Guetta that borrows heavily from the 1998 classic “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” from Eiffel 65.
When Rexha finished, the Ford Field crowd erupted in another round of obvious boos aimed at the 33-year-old singer.
Bebe Rexha nervous before performance
Rexha replied “Yessssss” when a fan asked her on Twitter earlier in the day on Thursday if she was nervous before the performance.
Though not everyone in Michigan enjoyed Rexha’s halftime performance, her song “I’m Good (Blue)quickly climbed to the top of the charts after its release in August. The song not only got a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Recording, but also peaked at number 7 in the United States, making it Rexha’s highest-charting single since “I’m a messreached number 35 in 2018.
