Introducing Alexis Jordan & Her Single 'Happiness'

Alexis Jordan is the newest artist on Jay-Z‘s label Roc Nation. She was born in Columbia, South Carolina, her father’s Puerto Rican heritage and her mother’s African American, Native American and European ancestry.

On the 17-year-old’s first single “Happiness,” she belts out a dance song about self-joy and empowerment over Stargate’s up-tempo track. You can download it for free at!

“I want to be really positive, no cussing, none of that,” says Alexis. “I’m a young artist and I want to be a role model. A lot of songs are upbeat, and some are ballads. There’s a little bit of that country vibe in it, and a little bit of that reggae vibe. My album really has everything.”

Watch Alexis’ intro video below!!! You can also follow her on Twitter @alexisjordan!

Good or her. kids need more role models like this young lady and Taylor Swift. Many young singers are so trashy now.

..jay-z has an eye (ear) for talent. rhianna, ne-yo, j-cole.. this girl unlike so many professionals out now can actually sing. she was on america’s got talent, and she killed numerous songs on youtube. her beyonce halo cover was… impressive. she actually sounds and looks a little like beyonce also. just a little.

Poor Rihanna. It was around this age Jay-Z started paying attention to her too. I like Alexis. I remember first seeing her on America’s Got Talent and she was REALLY good.

Her talent seems like it will be lasting and doesn’t need to be sexed up to be listened to.

I wish her luck! :) She seems really sweet and has such talent. I hope she gets the success that she deserves. Who knows, she might even give Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna a run for their money. lol

STFU annoying Charice fans. Go cluck somewhere else like more relevant like the tonnes of obsessive shrines out there. This girl is cute and has way more talent & charisma than that ugly troll.

@…I n F a m o u s l y C o o l: She looks like a young Beyonce. Very similar to Beyonce when she was a teenager imo. If you look up pics of Beyonce when Destiny’s Child’s first album came out you can see for yourself!

daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn she is soooooooooo hot ; )

Uhm, pretty sure Stargate did not produce ‘Happiness’ unless they and Deadmau5 are suddenly the same act. Check yo sources. The instrumental was originally called ‘Brazil (2nd Edit)’. Anyway, all of stargate’s **** is step, clap, step…step-clap like Irreplaceable.

She deserves what she is getting.That is obvious.

Ya you are absolutely right but the thing is that everyone doesn’t think in that way.

Wow great article! extremely informative and to the point.

Absolutely awesome tune and a very inspirational singer! What a great role model! Very positive! Love it! x
