Bebe Rexha’s Got ‘No Broken Hearts’ in New Video
Don't bother inviting Bebe Rexha to your sad girls club, because there'll be "No Broken Hearts" for this girl. The rising pop artist and singer-songwriter has debuted the music video for her new single featuring Nicki Minaj, and heartache or no, there's nary a tear to be spilled — only vodka.
Rexha starts off swinging in the clip, literally, as she perches high above the Manhattan skyline on a swing. (Girl, no broken hearts sounds fine but one slip and you'll break your everything!) After coming back down to Earth (again, literally, as she falls through the clouds—warned you, Bebe) as a conduit for Beats by Dre product placement, the bleach blonde pop princess resolves to be a club queen instead of risking ever having her heart be torn by the hands of love. (Heartbreak make me a dancer, am I right?)
For the most part, the Dave Meyers-directed video doesn't offer much by way of narrative, though there is plenty of eye candy to consume: Chic mom jeans! Break-dancers! Fluffy pink poodle skirts! Actual kittens!
In the midst of Bebe's booty-popping and hip-wiggling, rap's Queen Bee (not to be confused with Queen Bey) Nicki Minaj stops by to lay down verse for her "Hey Mama" collaborator. Later in the clip, rapper G-Eazy, another one of her friends and collaborators, pops by to give our girl a big ol' hug. (Pete Wentz, where you at?)
Remember, there'll be no broken hearts in the club tonight. Drink and dance that pain away, baby... Bebe commands it.
