Freshly Squeezed: Alexa Goddard (Roc Nation’s Latest Signee)

alexa goddard roc nation thatgrapejuice 600x222 Freshly Squeezed: Alexa Goddard (Roc Nations Latest Signee)

Roc Nation have once again drawn on Great Britain in the hunt for their latest star.

Having achieved ample success with Rita Ora, the Jay Z juggernaut has signed newcomer Alexa Goddard to their revered roster.

Hailing from Hampshire, England, the young starlet has been building a fan-base since the age of 14 – when she was travelling across Europe recording and promoting early demos.

She went on to become one of the ten Most Subscribed musicians in the history of YouTube UK with over 44 million views. More than hype, Goddard’s popularity led to her selling over 250,000 singles independently, thanks to her online presence. Bowled over by the singer’s buzz, top Roc Nation executives were so impressed that they promptly told their A&R division to ‘go get her’.

And “get her” they did. Goddard signed with the company last year and is gearing up to celebrate with debut single ‘Marilyn’. Produced by iconic hitmakers Stargate, the catchy cut was penned by fellow Roc artist Romans.

Does Alexa have what it takes? Listen below and let us know!

    She has a nice voice but I wasn’t too impressed with the song. Hopefully her other material will frap my attention more but overall I think she’s marketable & will definitely sell.

    Epic Records Chairman and CEO L.A. Reid says a collaboration with Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson is likely coming.

    I’m completely over this Michael album.

    2 Mr. Probz – Waves (Robin Schulz Radio Edit) 0.7240

    LOOKS like they are getting ready to get rid OF FLOP w**** RITA WHORA. She old sold 17k of her single in the USA, hence why she could not chart in the USA , this is even worse than HWD which peaked at 68.

    Rita has nothing to worry about. They are in different lanes. This is right down Katy/Ke$ha’s alley.

    YES, RITA DOES. SHE is fighting hard to go number 1 against some unknown dance act. SHE SOLD 17K of her new single in the USA and has tanked on radio. If, this LP does not outsell AGLM, she is dropped.

    Bridjet kelly has already been dropped. Tieraa marie done better than RITA and he dropped her which was such a dumb move. Tierra marie debut single peaked at 35 with just BET alone.

    Good luck with your career Alexa :D … Considering her numbers as an independent artist (wow tbh) it doesn’t look like they’ll have to give even 1/4 the amount of promo and money to get 4x better results than they did with a certain lUKal singles artist ….. Again, congrats and good luck with her career! I’ll check out for her music soon but she looks so cute!!

    The song becomes more likable as it goes on. Not bad overall. If they get behind this, they might get a hit of out it.
