Alexis Jordan (born April 7, 1992)[1] is an American singer and actress from Columbia, South Carolina. Jordan rose to fame as a contestant on the first season of America's Got Talent in 2006 at the age of 14. After being eliminated from the show, she began to upload cover songs to YouTube, which received millions of views. The exposure led Jordan to the attention of Norwegian production team Stargate and American rapper Jay Z, who both went on to sign her to their joint label, StarRoc.[2]
Her debut single, "Happiness", was released in September 2010, and reached number one in the Netherlands and Norway,[3] and also became a top-three hit in Australia and the United Kingdom. Jordan's debut self-titled album was released on February 25, 2011.[4]In October 2011, she confirmed via Twitter that she was working on her second studio album.[17] In November 2011, Jordan went to a recording studio in New York where she recorded with Stargate, she stated that the album is nearly completed.[18] In the same YouTube video uploaded by Jordan, she was asked what she was doing and she replied "Writing about different things 'cause I'm like all messed up cause I'm talking about girl power, then I'm talking about myself and how people don't really know me that well so they gonna get to know me in this song."[19]
On January 15, 2013, a new song titled "Acid Rain" leaked online. It was intended to serve as the lead cut from her second album.[20] "Acid Rain" samples Bingo Players‘ song “Rattle,” and is written by Sia Furler and produced by Stargate.[21] However it served only as a buzz single, as it was leaked in early 2013 and was never released on worldwide radios.[22] On December 28, 2013 Jordan released a new message on her Facebook page in which she confirms that the official lead single from her upcoming second studio album will be titled "Gone" and it will be released on March 1, 2014.[23] The official video was shot in late 2013.[24] Its official music video was premiered on February 28, 2014.[25]
As of 2015, the current status of Jordan's second studio album is unknown as she is no longer signed to Roc Nation and has been removed from the label's website.
