Remember Destiny’s Child’s 1999 hit “Say My Name”? It was all about how this dude was acting all suspicious on the phone, and our female leads wanted him to prove his love by proclaiming his love out loud. Well, in 2018, strong women are still having issues with lame lovers, and this time, Bebe Rexha puts feet to the fire on a Latin-inspired dance-pop beat that nods its head to the Destiny’s Child classic.
“Say My Name” gets its beat from David Guetta and features a Spanish verse from reggaeton hearthtrob J Balvin. The single gets a spicy video treatment from director Hannah Lux Davis. She previously worked with Guetta and Rexha on the Nicki Minaj and Afrojack-assisted single “Hey Mama.” The whole world is lit with black light and brought to life in high-voltage neons, which really helps illuminate that Takis sponsor.
The video plays with elements to bring the song’s storyline to life. If you aren’t ready to proclaim your love after this, you might be a lost cause. Watch the video for “Say My Name” below.
