The 'Meant to Be Singer' is up for best new artist and best country duo/group performance
Bebe Rexha was just nominated for two Grammys, but the pop star jokes she’s already been partying since yesterday. “I was really nervous about today, so I went out last night,” she tells Billboard with a laugh. “I celebrated too much last night!”
In the end, she had no reason to be nervous, picking a pair of nods, including one for best new artist. “I was crying and jumping and laughing,” she says. “It’s unreal. It’s just so cool.” She also was nominated for best country duo/group performance for her hit Florida Georgia Line collaboration, "Meant to Be."
“I think that a Grammy nomination is a Grammy nomination,” the singer says. “But country? I never thought that [I’d be nominated in the genre]. That’s life. You think you know where everything’s going to go with your life, but you have no idea. ‘Meant to Be’ has brought me so many blessings and so many incredible opportunities. It’s changed my life for sure.”
