The other day, I wrote about artists like Wynter Gordon who head overseas to countries where they’re appreciated. Alexis Jordan is a prime example of this. Despite displaying amazing talent and an arsenal of radio-friendly and dance hits, she hasn’t crossed over to the mainstream in North America. The same can’t be said for her in the UK. Jordan is doing so well there, she’s been tapped to tour with mega-huge UK boy band, JLS this summer.
Jordan first gained notice when she appeared on the first season of “America’s Got Talent“. Her debut single, “Happiness”, was a favorite of mine last summer. I have a feeling her new single, “Hush Hush” will be another summer anthem for me. The StarGate and Sandy Vee co-produced track has the potential to be her breakthrough hit. It’s radio-friendly with a catchy dance beat. From the second I heard it, I was obsessed. Check out the music video below.
Alexis Jordan “Hush Hush” Music Video
The music video is relatively simplistic with its theme. It’s just Jordan hanging out with her BFFs while singing and dancing around. That said, director Clifton Bell does a great job of capturing Jordan’s essence. A lot can be said for an artist’s true star quality when she’s able to captivate you without the bells and whistles found in most videos today. This is Alexis’ coming out party. Who knew girlfriend was such a fierce dancer? She’s so smoking hot, she reminds of early Janet Jackson. That’s a lot coming from this HUGE Janet fan.
What did you think of the video and song? I absolutely love it. “Hush Hush“, out of all her songs, has the biggest potential for global success. I really hope North American audiences warm up to Alexis Jordan soon. She is one of today’s most underrated upcoming singers.
