Remember Alexis Jordan? We introduced you to her back in 2011.
Signed to Roc Nation, the 20 year old US native enjoyed success in Europe upon the release of her debut single ‘Happiness’ and her self-titled album.
Having spent much of the last year working on her sophomore effort (which also dubs as her debut on home-soil), the South Carolina native is back with new single ‘Acid Rain’.
Produced by Stargate, penned by Sia (the dream-team behind ‘Diamonds’), the high-ocane track features Jordan’s label-mate J.Cole.
Does the budding star’s latest offering pack a punch enough to propel her to the status of Roc sisters Rihanna and Rita Ora? Judge for yourself below…
Despite boasting all the ingredients of a mega-smash on paper, the track still feels like chicken with no seasoning, cereal with no milk, bread with no butter. Edible? Yes. Filling? Not so much.
Still, given the current climate, the production positions this in the melting pot of what’s “hot” on radio, hence with the right backing it could work.
