Product Description

CD Description

Following on from the huge success of debut single "Happiness" which entered the UK charts at #3 and the US Dance Chart at #1, Alexis Jordan's debut self titled album is produced by Stargate--who she worked with on "Happiness" and who have previously worked with Rihanna, Beyonce and Ne-Yo. The album is packed full of anthemic and soon-to-be classic singles from 2011’s defining new pop voice.

BBC Review

Bubblegum pop isn’t an easy niche to fall into. If you lack charisma as a pop star, you’ll drop straight into the vortex set out by misers and cynics; while if you’re shy of submitting to the humour involved, you’ll be fed to the lions. Lyrically, there’s another hurdle – the all-consuming obsession of teen love can easily come off bereft of personality. And then there’s production, where there seems to be some urban legend that if it’s astounding – by virtue of its own aceness – it automatically discredits the singer at the helm of the music. It’s lucky for 18-year-old Alexis Jordan then, that her debut album proves a delight.

Instead of positioning her as another hyper-sexualised popstrel on the factory line, this album puts the former America’s Got Talent finalist forth as the person to breathe life into the silliness of a pubescent crush. It’s a wise decision too, as her lyrics are unbridled enough to melt an ice-cold heart – she sings about wanting to walk in high heels, and how she enjoys listening to her crush’s voice as he talks to her on the phone. While this may sound unbearably twee, it’s that very focus on a pure, single-minded crush that makes it; the mood and upbeat tempo of this album as a whole has all of the excitement of that very feeling.

Stargate’s production is typically clattery on Hush Hush, and it’s there that the strength and soul in her voice feels most empowering. Love Mist comes close to pushing proceedings over the edge with grimace-inducing reggae-lite beats, but the determined sass in Jordan’s vocal on High Road’s chorus duly emits that touchable sense of beatific innocence.

The approach to teen love is rudimentary, but that’s not meant as disrespect – this album is so caught up in that sense of gaiety that it transports the listener straight back to that very place, dancing around their bedroom with a dazed look in their eyes. It’s the same sweet stuff that made Shanice’s sole hit I Love Your Smile such a classic. Whether Jordan will trail off in the same short-lived fashion as her is a more long-term concern, but let’s not forget that Britney Spears sung about the object of her affections emailing her heart on her debut – and it didn’t do her music much damage in the long run.

After the surprise success of Happiness last year many wondered whether Alexis would become another 1 hit wonder but here she is with her own album which combines RnB, Dance and even reggae influences. She may not have won America's Got Talent but this album is actually pretty good

Happiness - 10/10 - Everybody knows this surprise hit with its mesmerising beat and impossibly catchy chorus
Good Girl - 10/10 - Not as instant as Happiness but still amazing with some swagger and style showing she's more than just a one hit wonder
How You Like Me Now? - 10/10 - a probable single with a great chorus and will probably be as big as her past singles
Say That - 10/10 - a slower song but still pretty amazing as it is different and showcases her raw talent
Love Mist - 9/10 - With reggae influences this isn't the best as its not as instant but is still pretty good
Habit - A very catchy song with a fantastic chorus which is one of the best and a hopeful single
Hush, Hush - 10/10 - Very clubby and very catchy and a fan favourite - a possible single?
The High Road - 10/10 - a song about celebrating being a woman with a chorus that would make Rihanna jealous
Shout, Shout - 10/10 - The surprise of the album as it samples the classic 'shout' to make a fantastic song which i want as a single as its my fave off the album
Laying Around - 10/10 - another slower song but still cool and laid back - anthemic
The Air That i Breathe - 9/10 - The only real ballad which is lacking something, almost as if she's holding back but is still a pretty good song

Overall a great debut and roll on the second record

After Alexis appeared on America's Got Talent aged 14, she began to post videos on YouTube and caught the attention of the major production team Stargate, and was later signed by Jay-Z to his RocNation label. I was surprised to learn that she's 19 - I thought she was a lot younger, but this is a good solid debut album that will make sure Alexis keeps her place in the R&B/Dance music industry for a good few years to come.

The album contains the 3 singles "Happiness", "Good Girl" and "Hush Hush" (released in May), all three of which are dancey R&B pop songs that will stick around for ages. "Habit" shows off the higher range of Alexis' voice; "High Road" is a mid-tempo tune with attitude; "How do you like me now?" is a slower R&B tune, "Laying Around" is an almost-ballad; "Love Mist" is another mid-tempo; "Say That" is slower; "Shout Shout" is definitely a candidate as a single, it's dancey and ballsy and really catchy; and "The Air that I Breathe" closes the album on a slow and soft note. It's a strong debut (if a little short), and it's nice to see a young female singer who doesn't have to rely on half-naked videos and profanity to gain fans (I'm not a prude - I just don't like hearing pre-teens singing about sex and the smell of it, Rihanna).

I Bought this album because i liked her new song Good Girl -thinking that the majority of the album would be very much like that, but boy was i shocked when i heard the album for the first time yesterday. I havent stopped listening to it!!! She is so amazingly brilliant. The album is produced mainly by stargate (Rihanna amoung others )and they have clearly worked their magic on this one, each track different from the next . Its certainly an upbeat album musically. The ballad at the end is most defintely the best song on the album in my opinion, but you will have to buy to make up your own mind , cannot wait for this girl to tour and work on new stuff, she will be huge and will certainly give the front runners in the game like Rihanna, Keri Hilson and Beyonce a run for their money. Even if you didnt like Happiness , i would still suggest listening to this album its sooo worth it. You will not be disappointed
Happiness 7/10
Good Girl 9/10
How you like me now 8/10
Say that 9.5/10
love mist 7/10
habit 8.5/10
hush hush 9.9/10
high road 8/10
shout 9/10
Laying around 10/10
The air that i breathe 11/10
I cannot rave about this album enough and well worth it in fact its underpriced in my opinion. Bring on the 2nd Album Alexis !!!!!
