Watch “Sacrifice” Music Video by Bebe Rexha
The music video for “Sacrifice” is on a whole other level. We see a topless man being restrained by chains while Bebe Rexha works her magic on him. And by magic, we mean whipped and bloodied him. This is her food because she is a vampire of sorts. So, it makes sense for her to call him a ‘sacrifice.’ In another scene, we also see Bebe Rexha and her ‘clan’ in an underground party of sort and getting bathed in blood! This gives some serious ‘Blade‘ movie vibes from 1998.
I wanna feel your heart every time it bleeds
