Bebe Rexha + Dolly Parton Duet ‘Seasons’: Look + Listen

Despite the country superstar rebuffing Bebe Rexha‘s initial request, Dolly Parton has since agreed to the collaborate with the Albanian-born pop princess.

Though Dolly previously refused to work on Bebe’s songs about “heaven and hell,’ the legendary country singer/songwriter she was happy to collaborate on ‘Seasons’.

In a interview with Variety, Bebe (born Bleta Rexha) said:

“She wrote me a thoughtful, handwritten note once just to say she was grateful for the request but the song I had submitted was about heaven and hell, and well, she didn’t have any interest in singing about hell that way.” “I understood completely, and the gesture was so thoughtful. I knew one day there would be a perfect song for us to share and ‘Seasons’ was it. She sent me her verse and her harmonies, and we got to film this really fun video together.” “I was in the studio, and we recorded the guitar and my vocals at the same time and didn’t edit much — just sang through a straight take. Then Dolly added her vocals and the result was just perfect.”

Now, 33, Rexha took advantage of the opportunity by filming the music video with 77-year-old Parton, stating ““Dolly is so funny — one of the funniest people I’ve met. I was in awe of her, wowed by her six-inch heels. I just [have] such strong admiration for her, not just as an artist, but as a songwriter. I started my career as a songwriter and would look up to Dolly because she’s able to write songs for other people, while also having success for herself.”
