Alexa exploded onto the UK pop scene with her super catchy debut single, ‘Marilyn’ impressing pretty much everyone. She’s just gone and announced that she’ll be opening the main stage at this year’s Wireless Festival on July 6 in London!
She’ll be sharing the stage with the likes of Bruno Mars, Outkast, Ellie Goulding, Robin Thicke and Sean Paul. No biggie…
New singers on the scene rarely come equipped with a CV as impressive as Alexa’s. By age 14, she was travelling across Europe recording early demos, and then went on to become one of the ten most subscribed musicians in the history of YouTube in the UK with over a whopping 44 million views!
Her popularity definitely did not stop there though – she sold 250,000 singles independently, thanks to the support she receives online. She signed to Roc Nation last year after executives viewed one of her videos on YouTube and were so impressed that they pretty swiftly told the Roc Nation team to ‘go get her’. (And so they should have! We can’t get enough of ‘Marilyn’)
What do you reckon? Can’t get that catchy little tune out your head? Us neither… Alexa is quite clearly the girl to watch out for this year! Will you be seeing her at Wireless this year?
