"Me, Myself & I" is a song by American rapper G-Eazy and American singer Bebe Rexha, billed together as G-Eazy x Bebe Rexha.[4] It was released on October 14, 2015, as the first single for his second studio album When It's Dark Out. "Me, Myself & I" was written by Bebe Rexha, G-Eazy, and Lauren Christy.[1][2][3][5] The song was originally produced by Bebe Rexha and TMS and re-produced by Michael Keenan, with additional production by Christoph Andersson and G-Eazy.[3] It was formerly both artists' highest peaking single, until Bebe Rexha's song "Meant to Be" peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, and G-Eazy's song "No Limit" peaked at number four. "Me, Myself & I" is featured in the NBA 2K17 soundtrack.

Recording and production

The original version of "Me, Myself and I" was written by Bebe Rexha, Lauren Christy, and TMS in early 2015[6] with the title "I Don't Need Anything".[7] The song was intended to be part of Rexha's debut album, but her label wasn't convinced it fit the style of her upcoming album. She asked a friend to put her in contact with rapper G-Eazy, because she wanted to do the song with him. Bebe and G-Eazy met three days later and she played the track on piano for him. He loved the track and asked for the song to be on his album. Rexha accepted and began immediately working on the track with Michael Keenan, G-Eazy's producer. Bebe and Michael re-produced the beat and decided to keep the chorus, post-chorus, and bridge of the original song and put G-Eazy's rap on the verses, while changing the title to "Me, Myself & I".[8][9] She performed the acoustic of the original version of the song on Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on March 16, 2016.[10]

Composition

According to musicnotes.com, the song is written in the key of C minor, with a tempo of 112 beats per minute.[11]

Chart performance

The song debuted at number 89 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and peaked at number seven, becoming G-Eazy's first top 10 single and Rexha's second after David Guetta's "Hey Mama". It was also G-Eazy's and Rexha's highest-charting single, until "Meant To Be" peaked at number two and "No Limit" peaked at number four, as well as the first number one song for both artists on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart.[12] As of January 17th, 2018, it has sold 4,000,000 copies in the United States.[13]

Music video

The song's music video premiered on October 29, 2015 on G-Eazy's Vevo account on YouTube. Since its release, the video has received over 330 million views.[14] Directed by Taj Stan's Berry, the video surrounds the scene of G-Eazy's birthday, where he is forced to reconcile with his anxieties and the man in the mirror.[15] Bebe Rexha is shown singing throughout the music video.

Live performances

G-Eazy and Bebe Rexha have performed the song at Jimmy Kimmel Live on December 3, 2015,[16] at Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on January 25, 2016[17] and at the 3rd iHeartRadio Music Awards on April 3, 2016.[18][19]

On August 28, 2016, Britney Spears performed the song with G-Eazy at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, along with their song "Make Me...".
