Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Alexia - Lemonade

New York singer/songwriter Alexia drops quarantine summer anthem ‘Lemonade’ 

If there’s one positive side effect of the global quarantine, it’s that people have learned how to be creative in entertaining themselves. For New York Pop artist Alexia, that time alone has been enlightening, and her latest single “Lemonade” is a fun summer song that perfectly captures the joy she discovered while being alone over the past few months. 

The chill bedroom-Pop vibe of the song offers a commercial sound to the world underneath fun lyrics that encourages people to let go of their anxiety and embrace this unique time of life.  

“I had taken a huge break from music writing because of the external and internal pressures of following a certain career path that distracted me from creating music,” Alexia said. “This is the first song I wrote during that time, and it’s just about letting go and having fun. In the time we’re in, I think of lot of people are trying to figure out how to go on, and I found that focusing on myself and learning how to enjoy my own company was transformative. I found that I really want to dive into music again, and this song is special to me because it is the song that represents all of that. ‘Lemonade’ is a song that everyone can dance to – even if it’s no longer at bars, but in your own bedroom. It has lightness but also really focuses on the time we have gone through this summer, finding ourselves and not focusing on the external world to define us.” 

Alexia’s sound and style is something that can only be described as diverse. She’s either singing super lo-fi Pop, cool-girl Pop, or writing ballads or dance hits. She takes all of those different genres and turns them into her own kind of genre and signature sound. She said the next songs she plans to release will be much different in tone and vibe from “Lemonade” with hints of R&B mixed with classic Rock or Drake-like smooth vibes mixed with the brooding energy of someone like Billie Eilish.  

“I’m all about authenticity in the moment,” she said. “That helps me to be really genre-less. I don’t want to conform to a genre. I want to really evolve with the times and be completely transparent about my experience. I think I will always keep in mind a really strong melody, and I want my audience to know I’m putting my all into this. I really want to be a songwriter and get my name out. I love to collaborate, and if this opens doors for me to be able to work with other artists and be immersed in the art then that’s all I care about. I really believe in my natural ability as a songwriter and I just want to be myself and evolve as an artist.” 

Following “Lemonade,” Alexia said she plans on releasing another single she wrote during quarantine called “Growing Up.”
