CRITIC REVIEWS

80
The Independent

While the record could have been a few songs shorter, Expectations is expansive in that it isn’t one big radio hit after another, which proves Rexha is opting for longevity instead of manufactured pop.

NME

‘Expectations’ isn’t flawless, but it’s a compelling re-introduction to an underrated artist – one capable of putting her own stamp on current pop sounds.

Rolling Stone
Bebe Rexha's voice makes a quirky, squirmy sound that may not be your cup of squeak. But if it is, then it's crazily irresistible and, given the right melody, unstoppable.
60
AllMusic

While the album could benefit from some tightening -- the middle stretch stalls the momentum -- Expectations affirms Rexha's songwriting prowess, ear for catchy hooks, and ability to pull emotion from otherwise serviceable radio pop.

The Line of Best Fit

Throughout Expectations she goes on many aimless wanderings, and sticks safely to little bits of many well-worn styles and over familiar ideas. It would appear the major MO of this album is throw enough shit at the wall, and something will stick.

The Guardian

The songwriting – about bad girls and good boys in miserable, moneyed relationships – is precisely as deep as you’d expect. Poptimism finds its hard ceiling.
