Ready for the next biggest movement in pop music? I PROMISE you will like this song and your emotions will run wild.

If you haven’t heard of Alex Young.. you’re behind! Not only is she the next hottest pop diva on the scene, but she’s a diva with a message. Her latest single, “Government Name”, did extremely well, garnering the #4 position on MTV Logo’s Pop charts and sustaining this position for over 6 weeks (it’s still there!). Now, Alex is back with a new single called “Something’s Coming”.

The first time I heard this song, I instantly got chills down my spine, and couldn’t get it out of my mind for weeks. With the deep crisis the world is in, there is a huge need for hope and a greater need for change. “Something’s Coming” is a message of both. We NEED to make a change in this world before something really tragic happens, like the tsunami in Japan or the earthquake in Haiti, to name a few. You MUST listen to this beautiful song – the instrumental is incredible, the lyrics are moving (to say the absolute LEAST), and AY’s vocals are beyond amazing. Truly touching.

Stay tuned for this soon-to-be-viral music video dropping very soon! I will post the download link with the video.

“Government Hooker” – Lady Gaga

Here is Lady Gaga’s new single (bad quality, but it’s all that’s been released so far) that she just debuted in Paris’s Mugler Fashion Show. I’m cuhrazy about this beat. Nuts for it. The song is alright. By the way… “Government Hooker”? Like Alex Young‘s “Government Name“? Did Gaga jack the title? Hmm.. Just kidding. But not really. But kidding. Seriously though…

P.S. What the crap is a government hooker?

EVENT REVIEW: Alex Young’s “Government Name” Music Video Release Party

Filed under: Concert, Event, Pop Music, R&B | Tags:

Last night (11/30) was Alex young’s “Government Name” music video release party in NYC. With music by celebrity DJ, DJ Fadelf, and guest appearances from Pizzi (of Mysto & Pizzi) and Taj Jackson amongst others, it was an all around AMAZING night. Alex performed her new hit single “Government Name” along with 2 other songs, “Light Refraction” and “Heart Stop”. She put on a spectacular show, looking absolutely stunning in her Sofistafunk Co. wardrobe, and received an all around jaw-dropping “WOW” response from the crowd. With fabulous visuals and beyond amazing choreography by Sheryl Murakami, the show was a hit to say the least.

The actual event space, 8 Bond Studio in NYC, was an incredible setting with a great vibe. The space was decked out in AY “Government Name” decorations front to back, with all staff sporting awesome “What’s your GOVERNMENT NAME?” T-shirts, as shown below. These shirts, where you can sign your name on them, will be available for purchase shortly on Alex Young’s website www.alexyoungmusic.com. I recommend buying one…

If you haven’t seen Alex’s new music video “Government Name”, you’re behind the times! Check it out ASAP:

Alex Young and friends

“Government Name”

So I apologize for not posting the past couple of days, but I have been on set for Alex Young’s new music video for “Government Name”. It was my first music video shoot, and I was completely stunned the whole day. Between the ridiculously high-tech cameras, the size of the production crew, the outfits and glamor, the dancing, the energy, and more, I was like a little kid in a candy store. I was in awe of Alex’s talent – a 2pm-4:30am shoot, with non-stop choreography and shooting, the girl was an animal, and never once complained or showed an ounce of being worn down, but was rather quite the opposite. At around 3:30am, when a part of me wanted to die, I was sitting down watching her completely destroy a dance scene like it was early afternoon and she just had 6 Redbulls. She never ceases to amaze me and I cannot wait to see the finished product. I will definitely be posting the video when it is finished going through post-production – look for me, I’m an extra! I’m positive that the viewers will be just as stunned as I was by the beauty, energy, choreography, wardrobe, and everything else about this video. It was soooo much fun to be there and watch the whole thing unfold. Plus, the male leads were HOT. Can’t complain! I could never endure what AY did yesterday – the incredible life of an artist. I am way too lazy. If you’re not listening to “Government Name” yet, WHO ARE YOU!? Get on that shet.
