Alexis Jordan Brings Me Happiness

Ok, that might be an exaggeration but I am very partial to the teenager's debut single "Happiness" - or more specifically, the ridiculously cute Jump Smokers remix (below). The 18 year old diva first came to prominence on America's Got Talent and was recently signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation label. Beyoncé's husband doesn't have a great track record of unearthing talent - after all, he foisted Rihanna upon the world - but I'm down with Alexis. She has an amazing voice (check this out, Brandy almost cums in her jeans!) and she's already stated that her album is going to be full of upbeat pop music. That leads us to her debut single. "Happiness" was produced by Stargate and, in its original form, is a fairly typical example of their work. I like it but the Jump Smokers really bring the song to life by speeding it up for the dancefloor and emphasising the multitude of hooks. It's so cute and catchy. Just be careful because you'll have "I got to hurry hurry hurry now, quick quick quick" stuck in your head for weeks! Oh and if you like your dance music a little more progressive, give the amazing Deadmau5 remix a spin. Alexis recently filmed a video for "Happiness" and her album is scheduled for release later this year. So far, so good. What a relief to finally have a teen sensation that isn't a prostitute or bible bashing virgin.

STOP THE RIRI HATE!

Baby Jane said...

who cares about RiRi? I'm more furious at the Delta hate! Why is that sacrilegious image still your avatar? Delta will forever be an Australian beauty and icon. EIGHT number 1 singles! Six consecutive number 1 singles. YOU MAD?

The deluded Cultist Baby Jane failed to notice that "sob sob pit me.. I had CANCER!!!!!!!!!!!" only worked for so long - hence why DULLta is an international FLOP and will be lucky to have another (s)hit in Australia! The SLUT!

this other bint looks like a bad Ah-Leeah-Shah! from Mis-teeq-quah! tranny.

Tune! is it on itunes yet?

Baby Jane said...

@Me lol you are too funny.

Funny...but also incredibly ignorant. Delta revealed she had cancer AFTER those number 1s! They had nothing to do with her chart success. And I don't remember her ever using it to promote herself but even if she did, she had good reason for doing so. Delta may not be huge internationally but no Australian artists are, except for a rare few. She owns Australia and is definitely not a slut! Haters to the left!

Rihanna is SHIT!

And I'm not even going to wade into the A-dulta-ress debate. She's too vile to contemplate!

I hate Rihanna! She looks like a hammerhead shark! And she can't sing!

But this remix is HOT!

Okay...I didn't like this version when I heard it. But now that I've heard the original mix, I really like it. That's the danger of judging a song on a remix rather than the original.
