Once again enlisting in-house producer Abraham Poythress as well as FreekyNeekMusic, Alabama native Alexia Jayy declares she’s “Over And Done” on the follow up to her Boosie Badazz assisted re-release of “I Need A Man.” Detailing the mind state one develops after accepting the fact that your forever love is toxic and ending the relationship is the only way to begin the healing process, the latest single from the sultry singer/songwriter is the perfect precursor for a hot girl Summer.
In a exclusive press statement to Medium Creative Agency, Alexia reveals:
“I was in a relationship that was draining me and my go to is music when I’m in my feelings. I started hearing the words to the hook in my head. I took it to the studio, met up with Jay Lyriq, put the pieces together, and the rest is history!”
Raised in a small town called Irvington, music found Alexia very quickly. Her family has maintained long standing roots in the close knit quarters, which she describes as “super peaceful with a lot of cows, pigs, trees, crickets, frogs, and stars at night.” Her grandfather, Ben Dixon, became the first settler in the area. Owning and running sawmills, he donated land to the middle school, which now bears his name. Additionally, her family comprises the bulk of the congregation at the local community church where her uncle serves as pastor. At two-years-old, Alexia sang her first solo in church.
Growing up, her mother encouraged her to perform as much as possible. That encouragement and her raw talent resulted in winning the world-famous “Amateur Night” at The Apollo as well as talent shows in Washington, D.C., Hollywood, and beyond. At nine-years-old, she joined the local gospel group Grace and they released the Keith Bivens-directed visual for “Luke Warm,” which has now collected nearly 2M views.
Upon graduating from high school, she embraced R&B wholeheartedly. Inspired by the likes of Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, and Sam Cooke, she kept honing her voice. Following the birth of her son, she pursued this dream to the fullest and began sharing clips of her singing on social media. Among those clips, she shared an acapella performance of her original song “Who Raised You?.”
Shortly after sharing the video she was introduced to the masses by way of a repost on social media from Chris Brown. If that wasn’t enough to put critics on notice, studio sessions with Rico Love, a co-sign from Jazmin Sullivan, and winning Muni Long’s ‘Open Verse’ challenge which led to her singing backup for the Def Jam recording artist’s debut performance on The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon all followed.
