The 31-year-old took to the 'gram to show off the album's psychedelic cover, shot by photographer Brian Ziff. Understandably, her fans have some high expectations for her new music, and the album art isn't the only thing hyping it up. Rexha also said that her upcoming work will span genres, and by the looks of it, her previous singles, like Baby I'm Jealous and Sacrifice, have totally been proving to her followers that she's serious about it.

The singer opened up about what the album means to her in a recent interview with People Magazine. "I wanted to really go back to my roots," she revealed. "I just wanted to take everything that I've ever loved that's been part of me and put it into this album, visually and musically. So that's exactly what I did. Here we are."

The album, which took two years to create, brought on some vulnerable moments for Bebe. "It's okay to feel alone, and that we all have our moments, we sabotage things that we love, we do things that we don't know why we do them, it's just human nature," she further discussed. "Sabotage is one of the most vulnerable songs on my new album. It's just as beautiful as it is painfully honest. I know I am not alone in experiencing self-sabotage during life's most precious moments, and this ballad is an acknowledgment that sometimes we are our own worst enemy."

These statements came right after she shared a heartfelt video on Twitter talking about her new album. She also explained that COVID-19 delayed its release. But it looks like nothing can stop this two-time Grammy nominee from continuing to slay. We're on our tippy toes waiting to see what Rexha has in store next; Bring on May 7th already!
