Earlier today (May 12), Bebe Rexha’s Lil Wayne-assisted “The Way I Are” leaked a week before its official May 19 release date.
“Whoever leaked my new single… not cool,” she tweeted. “The artwork and a snippet were only suppose to come out today.”
The track was quickly quashed and the 27-year-old rising pop star continued with the planned rollout by unveiling the accompanying candy colored cover art. “Next Friday,” Bebe wrote alongside a series of dancing emojis. See below the artwork below.
“So I have a single coming off of [AYF] called ‘The Way I Are’ featuring Lil Wayne and it’s… taken from the Whitney Houston song ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody,’” Bebe revealed in a recent interview. “So the hook is ‘I just wanna dance with somebody, I just wanna dance with somebody.’ So it’s really cool and Wayne does a crazy verse on it.”
Look out for “The Way I Are” next week. And in the meantime revisit our exclusive conversation with Bebe below.
