One of Roc Nation’s newest recruits is high-energy singer, Alexis Jordan. The “Happiness” hitmaker tells reporters that what she loves most about working with boss Jay-Z is that he gives her the creative freedom to make her own decisions.
Naturally she relies on the music mogul for guidance and direction, but when it comes to the diva-in-training’s sound and image, she’s calling all the shots. Jordan recently spoke at the MTV Push in partnership with CK One party in London. While there she chatted with BANG Showbiz saying, “Jay-Z is amazing. It’s so great for me to have someone like him be so hands on with my project. He’s really awesome. He really lets me be the artist that I am and lets me make my own decisions.”
“I get to have a say in what I wear and what music I want to bring out and now it’s music that’s really fun and really kind of innocent, she added.
But Jordan warns that we haven’t seen every side of her just yet. “My music right now is a reflection of a little bit of who I am. I don’t think I could completely convey who I am in just one record so you’ll have to wait for the next one, and the one after that to find out more about me.”
As we anticipate the future growth of this breakout artist, she admits that fame is still relatively new to her. She recalls hearing her song on the radio: “I flipped out today because we were in the car this morning and my driver goes, ‘Do you guys want to hear some music?’ And he put the radio on and it was my song…My mom was flipping out, we were like ‘did you plan this?'”
Be on the lookout for Alexis Jordan as she rapidly climbs the charts!
