Alexis Jordan Inks Deal With Roc NationFriday, March 26, 2010
Currently at work on her debut album, Jordan recently spoke of the deal, which stemmed from her success online, specifically on YouTube.com.
"I thought if they didn’t love me then they wouldn’t fly me all the way out to New York," Alexis says of a 'call' she received from Stargate, who arranged a meeting and recording session. "I knew I had a good chance. Once I got out there we recorded a few songs and JAY-Z came to the studio. I was so excited! And the next thing I knew I was signed to StarRoc/Roc Nation."
Now working with some of the music industry's best producers, Alexis Jordan is ready to bring "something fresh, something new and something positive to the world".
On her first single “Happiness,” Alexis belts out lyrics covering self-joy and empowerment over Stargate’s up-tempo.
"I want to be really positive, no cussing, none of that,” says Alexis. “I’m a young artist and I want to be a role model. A lot of songs are upbeat, and some are ballads. There’s a little bit of that country vibe in it, and a little bit of that reggae vibe. My album really has everything.”
Watch out for Alexis Jordan's debut, coming soon.
