As a region once overshadowed by the power house areas like New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta & Miami, the DMV has of late become a hot bed of diverse and budding talent in the music scene. With legends like Dru Hill claiming the region, to artist like Chris Brown & Wale becoming international stars and house hold names, and now up and comers like Brian Nightingale (GrammyDavisJr), London Savoy & Lola Zoe to name a few making their mark , Maryland is looking to be a new go to spot for hip hop & RnB talent. Alex Jay is an RnB/Pop singer and Baltimore native that most definitely should be on your radar as I can expect the next project he releases as a follow up to 2016’s “Press Play” will set the tone for what’s to come from this young talented vocalist.
The 10 track project opens up with the Trap & B “Alot Of Thoughts” before seamlessly transitioning into the Motown feeling “Girlfriend” featuring Larry Birdz which makes a play on a sample from The Jackson 5’s hit “One More Chance” and closes with fan favorite “Don’t” which he also dropped a music video for. The project also features vocals by Dolle Taylor on “Outta My Way” & London Savoy on “Conversations” Although there weren’t many official music video’s released with the project Alex Jay was able to keep his many fans visually satisfied by releasing dozens of cover song video’s that he makes by fan request on his official youtube channel.
In an article with Vibes100 Alex Jay quotes, “As an artist I’m an “artist”.. I always try and learn as much as I can to get better..I always aim for different to give people that sound they need and what they’re not used to hearing.” Which is a sentiment he proves with his brand new single “You On You” that he released on July 12th 2017. We will be reaching out to Alex Jay for an exclusive interview and plan to bring you all the details on what he has coming next in the very near future.
