Australian rapper Masked Wolf teams up with Bebe Rexha on a new single “It’s you, not me (sabotage)“
Inspired by Bebe’s own “Sabotage” from her latest album Better Mistakes, the re-imagined version features the Australian rapper dropping poignant verses and offering a different perspective to the emotional track.
Masked Wolf shares: “It’s You, Not Me (Sabotage)” is about standing up for yourself in a relationship. Rather than waiting to hear the old cliché “it’s me, not you,” this song is about confronting the situation and addressing it head-on by saying, “I know it’s you and I don’t want to be around this anymore.” As soon as I heard Bebe’s original, the verses just started to pour out and I knew I had to be on it.
Bebe Rexha adds: “Sabotage” is a song that really means a lot to me personally. I love the twist Masked Wolf put on it and the way he was able to transform the ballad into a completely new sound.
Back home in his native Australia, Masked Wolf recently received five ARIA Award nominations, with nods for Best Artist, Breakthrough Artist, Song of the Year, Best Hip Hop Release, and Best Video.
In the US, “Astronaut In The Ocean” was a multi-format phenomenon, climbing to #1 on the Rhythmic radio chart as well as the Top 10 at Top 40. The 2x-Platinum-certified song spent 22 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #6, while the official music video has logged over 255 million views on YouTube alone. Masked Wolf made his world television debut with an epic performance of the song on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” followed by his first, primetime television appearance on “The Voice” and, later, on “The Kelly Clarkson Show.”
