Enter Alexis Jordan.

Aged just 19, the South Carolina native has has taken the UK by storm with her infectious brand of Dance/Pop. Indeed, the last 12 months have seen the vocalist amass two top ten singles (‘Happiness’ and ‘Good Girl’), as well a top ten album with her self-titled debut.

We caught up with the starlet, who is signed to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation, in London last week; chatting it up with her about many a topic including: her rise to prominence, plans to smash the US, her thoughts on non-singer’s judging shows such as the X Factor, Rihanna, Beyonce, her desire to date Chris Brown, and much more.

Hit ‘play’ on the video above and get to know Jordan’s big personality and even bigger voice – which she readily showcases (acapella) upon request!

Alexis Jordan’s latest single ‘Hush Hush’ is out now!

    IDK what it is with TGJ to have Rihanna brought up in every damn interview and majority, 98% of the time, the person your interviewing all has positive things to say.

    SAM, Just stay the f*** mad that your fav. Kelly Rowland can’t out sing her way to the top over Rihanna.

    Stay the f*** mad that Rihanna is successful and that Rihanna reign just won’t let up no time soon.

    she seems like a conceded b****! how can someone so young and new to the business already be so full of herself….not a good look! i love her CD and music but since watching this im very disappointed with her attitude! sometimes its better not to know the artist behind the music! she doesn’t even say thank you when the interviewer says her album is great! where is her mother……

  6. SipDatBoyz May 17, 2011

  16. MyBackFoot May 17, 2011

  18. ManDwn May 17, 2011

    Her desire to date Chris Brown……………LMAO….She needs to google(teyanna taylor’s voice) Rihanna

  19. Prince&Queen Bey May 17, 2011

    I Love her! She’s pretty, she has big voice, she’s down to earth,she’s talented. I will definitely be looking forward to hearing her album. I don’t see a conceited girl at all. I see a Confident girl and that’s a good thing.

  20. sabrina May 17, 2011

    A second album already!!!! Wow. Jay Z saw the dismal numbers and is moving on to the next. Lol

  21. antertain May 17, 2011

    Gave a good insight to her character.
    Sam u wrong for that Jason Derulo or Breezy question LOL. The way she didn’t even hesitate and buss out laughing was classic HAHAAAA.

    RiRi is the bench mark of having successful singles so you hardly have anyone disrespect her music hustle (goaty live sounds or not).
    Obviously Bee destroys her but RiRi defo has her lane.

    Back to Alexis im loving how she sung and did her.
    She’ll grow on her replies to certain q’s but in general this interview made me pay attention to her.

    Like Hapiness

  22. K May 17, 2011

    DEAD at my comment being held for moderation and not posted! Can’t take the truth, Sam?

  23. kevin May 17, 2011

    She looks like Crisette Michelle but oh Lord….someone needs to groom her for interviews, lol. It was almost like watching Beyonce give an interview at age 9.

    I think it’s funny that when asked to describe her music, she used colorful and loud…kinda like Rihanna. Another funny moment…when she said US listneners won’t settle for just anything but lists legendary acts as influences. Alrighty then.

    She’s young, so I’ll cut her some slack but I hope she does well. Good job Alexis…you’re mad talented and don’t take the critics too hard.

  24. Punto Punto May 17, 2011

    wells she s a pretty young lady…Wal marts Giving Back After Laying Off Over 35,000 People.. $1,400 Gift card – I Grab 3 of Them..Lmao

  25. Sal May 17, 2011


    Intro was noooiiice. Nice touch

  26. Christian May 17, 2011

    SO CUTE!!!! I might check her music out.

    GOOD BYE, Rihanna! (..pointing, waving, laughing savoring every delicious moment)

    I can’t say it was “our pleasure,” but it WAS….”real” (revealing/getting to the bottom of your fuckry, that is)! Nicki Minaj gives us a new “IT-Girl”, and Alexis Jordan has now given us a ‘proper example’ of talent!

    The ‘microphone and stage’ were never meant for “frauds and gimmickry..!” Playing “dress-up” while prancing about ‘to-and-fro’, while screeching, could ONLY last but for so long! So, in lieu of talent, you gave us sensationalism, rumor and outright-lies!

    Some 6-Million watched, that now infamous, 20/20 interview of yours; 6-Million sympathetic souls who you somehow couldn’t convert to ‘Rated-R sales.’ I will NEVER understand how someone could squander such an opportunity – you’re a ‘world-class failure’, Rihanna..!!

    Alexis Jordan givens us a ‘glimpse of the future’ – a future WITHOUT YOU, Rihanna..

    Bring it on, Alexis…(bring it on..)

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!!
    P.S. — I’m now anticipating Teyanna Taylor to leverage her “new-found big-screen shine” into ‘music gold’..!!

    She’s great!

    Funny and talented.

    DID I SAY S*** YET?

  30. Jules May 17, 2011

    My god people giver her a DAMN break…. There’s a line between cocky and confident and Alexis is just confident. She’s living her dream. If she was conceited I’m sure her answers would have been a lot different. What I got from the interview is that she’s humble yet comfortable with herself. She’s outgoing, open enough to answer the questions truthfully, and she didn’t hesitate when asked to sing for the interview. She was nothing but classy, but you can’t forget that she’s still new to the business. Don’t knock her for not acting like your faves… she’s a different person. She’s still processing what’s going on in her life, but there’s nothing wrong with being proud of your accomplishments. She was age-appropriate, had fun with the interview, and didn’t shade anyone (saying you’d date Chris Brown isn’t shading Jason). Grow up and stop with the ignorant hatred.

  31. Garfield May 17, 2011

    Oh wow I like her a lot. I think she’ll get better in interviews. I dont like Rihanna but even I know she wont bring down Rihanna from where she is. Rihanna has established herself and has made a huge fanbase here in the US and even bigger overseas. If Britney can last as long as she has I think Rihanna can do the same. No shade just the truth

  32. DION_ISH May 17, 2011

    All I want to say is SAM needs to find some more questions to ask because these are getting quit boring….. Like Really, then the NERVE of him to ask someone Rihanna vs. Beyonce Ummm TOO DIFFERENT artist and fields sweetie. More Like Rihanna vs. Gaga or Beyonce vs. Alicia Keys.

  33. CAROL May 17, 2011

    Funny after the follow on twitter, Jay brings out the big guns. Rihanna’s replacement. LMFAO. Jay is mad and now he is going to make this chick a superstar. I’m hearing that she is doing very well overseas already

  34. JAMES May 17, 2011

    This young lady speaks very well. She has natural beauty and she can really sing.

  35. Esther_minajfan May 17, 2011

    I’m a huge fan. I think she’s really nice.

  36. Kisses. May 17, 2011

    Loved the interview 🙂

  37. Aaliyah May 17, 2011

    Cute girl. Reminds me of Rihanna. Seems like she is from some island… Anyway, I like her already. Looking forward to the second album.

  38. mobwife May 17, 2011

    LOL…Rihanna better watch her back! This chick is BADDD!! She is pretty! She is bright! She is TRULY TALENTED! Her voice is pleasant and strong. If the music industry stops pushing all of this “dead weight” and “noise makers” on to the public, maybe a pretty girl with a good voice like Alexis could get some attention in the states!

    Which would you rather date Jason DUH- HELL – NO or young, fly, and s***?? Her answer with a giggle was PRICELESS! 🙂

  39. UGh May 17, 2011

    she seems like such a nice girl. koodos for her not answering that Beyonce , Rihanna question although we know she picked Beyonce in her mind.

  40. mobwife May 17, 2011

    I can’t believe that ppl are complaining about the “quiz” questions Sam asked!?!? TGJ always asks similar questions when they interview ppl! Besides per what some delusional ppl seem to believe, Rihanna is a DIVA and an ICON blah, blah, blah so why wouldn’t he compare the so called new “Queen” to the TRUE QUEEN? I’m just saying…LOL 🙂

  41. oops May 17, 2011

    did rihanna already do the loud colorful out going thing


  42. Jayye May 24, 2011

    too bad thats her real hair hater smh look at her yt videos if youre in doubt people always have something so bad to say
