    She's also penned a bunch of smashed hits, like "The Monster" by Eminem and Rihanna and "All Hands on Deck" by Tinashe.

    The 29-year-old recently revealed that she's bipolar and shared her diagnosis through a series of emotional tweets.

    "I’m bipolar and I’m not ashamed anymore," Bebe wrote. "That is all. (Crying my eyes out.)"

    "I don’t want you to feel sorry for me. I just want you to accept me. That’s all," she concluded. "Love you."

    Fans and new listeners alike showered the artist with a ton of support.

    @BebeRexha Chin up and be proud! As a father of a young woman imo we need more people like you for our daughters to aspire to be like.

    Bebe's message also empowered others to share unapologetic messages about their own mental health journeys.

    @BebeRexha I have bipolar too. There are so many of us. You aren’t alone. I have been dealing with the obvious symptoms since I was at least 18, but was misdiagnosed with just MDD and anxiety until last December. I wish someone had figured it out sooner.

    @BebeRexha I'm bipolar too. Thank you for always speak about mental health. Thank you for sharing this with us. You're an amazing woman, so strong and talented and beautiful and brave. I love you.

    @BebeRexha @demiendgame i got the borderline personality disorder and I'm also not afraid to say it

    THANK YOU FOR BEING SO VULNERABLE AND HONEST, BEBE <3
