Hear Bebe Rexha’s New Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Girl’ for ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’
Bebe Rexha has released a new anthemic song for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil titled “You Can’t Stop the Girl.”
The song spins the story of Maleficent into a classic girl empowerment anthem (“They’re trying to take our voices/They’re trying to make our choices/So we scream loud, loud, loud”; “You can’t stop the girl from going/You can’t stop the world from knowing/The truth will set you free”) and lets Rexha show off her impressive vocal belt. The music video, directed by Sophie Muller, will be released in the coming weeks.
Rexha previously released the music videos for “Not 20 Anymore” and “Call You Mine,” with the Chainsmokers, the latter of which won an MTV Video Music Award. She is reportedly working on her second studio album, and is currently on tour as an opener for the Jonas Brothers on their Happiness Begins Tour.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the Disney sequel to Maleficent and spin-off of Sleeping Beauty, arrives in theaters on October 18th. The trailer was released this past July.
