Alexa Goddard - Marilyn
Already a huge hit, Alexa Goddard's 'Marilyn' now has a video and official release date - 17th August.
Her incredible debut single ‘Marilyn’ has wowed her fans with its irresistible hook and sing-a-long chorus, and now Alexa Goddard has unveiled the accompanying video. Shot on location in LA, the stunning video was directed by Hannah Lux Davis, who has previously crafted visuals for the likes of Ciara, Jason Derulo and Lil Wayne.
Written by new Roc Nation artist Romans and produced by the prolific global hit-makers Stargate, the hugely infectious ‘Marilyn’ is set to make Alexa the name on everyone’s lips this summer. She’s already achieved the impressive feat of selling out a show in two minutes – her recent headline gig at the Islington Academy went down a storm.
Ready-to-explode singers rarely come equipped with a resume as tight as Alexa’s. By age 14, this girl from the small English town of Yateley, Hampshire, was travelling across Europe recording early demos. She went on to become one of the ten most subscribed musicians in the history of YouTube in the UK with over 44 million views. Her popularity led to her selling over 250,000 singles independently and entering the UK Top 20. She signed to Roc Nation last year after executives noticed her independent releases storming the charts, and were so impressed that they promptly told the team to 'go get her'.
‘Marilyn’ is already causing a stir in the press, with the Daily Star declaring that “the purity of her voice is unfathomable” and The Sun simply exclaiming “crumbs, she can sing!” Elle magazine described her as having a “Mariah-esque vocal range,” and Fabulous magazine stated that “when someone gets JAY Z’s approval, you know they’re gonna be big. Popjustice called ‘Marilyn’ “proper pop and very excellent” and Female First said they “couldn't get enough of it”.
Alexa’s talent and seamless transition from girl-next-door to pop’s next rising star make her the girl to watch out for this year!
