The singer-songwriter christened “I Got You” as the next promotional cut from her debut album and will release it on October 28 via iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal and all other digital streaming platforms.

“I Got You” was co-written by Rexha along with regular collaborator, Lauren Christy, who also teamed up with the artist on the Jon Levine-produced “I’m Gonna Show You Crazy” and G-Eazy-assisted “My, Myself and I”.
