“When I’m doing my own shows," Bebe said, "I can dig a little deeper in the catalog of what fans would like. And when I’m doing a festival show I want to make sure I put in a little bit more of, like the hits, like what most people would know.”
Getting into one of those particular hits — you know the one — her collab with David Guetta, “Im Good (Blue).” Bebe, took a moment to once again share how that track came about, this time noting “we thought it’d be cool to flip to ‘I’m Good’ instead of it being so sad.” Before explaining how the song “just blew up,” thanks to a combination of a fan, YouTube and TikTok.
“I just messaged him and said hey, cause we had something together a while back," Bebe recalled, noting she met Snoop at Stagecoach. Fast forward to working on her album, Bebe reached out saying “I have a perfect song that I would you on. If you want to hear it cool, if not that’s totally fine.” Obviously Snoop responded, “so I sent it to him, and the next day he called me and said check your email.”
