A sneak peak @ Roc Nation’s Alexis Jordan

Guest Blogger: Tina Hart

When you’ve got the backing of one Shawn Carter aka Jay-Z you’ve got to be pretty damn good at what you do, right? Well, little lady Alexis Jordan showcased her skills to a small crowd in London last night, proving why she’s worthy of her spot as one of few signings to the mogul’s entertainment company, Roc Nation, under its Star Roc division.

This talented 18-year-old has been writing songs and performing songs since she was 11, got to the semi-finals of the first season of America’s Got Talent at only 14, became a YouTube sensation by 16 and subsequently bagged herself the prestigious record deal she has today.

Last night Alexis graced the stage, glittery eyelids, red Beyoncé-ish hair, sexy/cool biker-style outfit and all, accompanied by backing dancers and a live band and broke out her strong singing voice on sassy pop song Good Girl.

Cranking up the attitude with a rock guitar sound was How You Like Me Now followed by the contrasting slower vibe on Say That to which she showed off her stunning vocal repertoire flawlessly.

Wrapping up the mini-gig was Alexis’ forthcoming debut UK release Happiness, an irresistibly catchy dance-pop ditty teamed with some neat dance moves, which after hitting the top of the dance chart in the ‘States, is bound to translate well over here and across Europe. With an obligatory acapella trill ending proceedings it was clear that this gifted Southern Belle has huge global-star potential.

Happiness is out October 17
