Alexis Jordan - Happiness

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Stargate (Co-prod Deadmau5)
Album:
Untitled Debut

If you’re searching for Happiness, you’ve come to the right place. Believe it or not, the debut single from new Roc Star/Roc Nation/Columbia signee Alexis Jordan contains the key to a fulfilling life free of worry and care. OK, ok, I made that up (early April Fools!) but, in truth, the record does have a lot going for it. Over the driving, compulsively body-moving boardwork of heavyweight production duo Stargate, the 17-year-old, Colombian-born singer recounts how she walked out of a rocky relationship, only to realize just how much she’d been taking for granted and come right back to the man she’d left behind. Jordan’s smooth, likable vocals should leave few unimpressed, and the “Mm mm mm mm” hook seems expressly designed for maximum hummability. Could we have a hit on our hands? I’ll leave it to you, the readers to speculate. If this track succeeds in making you happy, keep it locked to you-know-where for the latest on this rising star’s debut studio album, which has yet to receive either a title or a solid release date from the label brass.
