Alexis Jordan pairs up with her Roc Nation labelmate J. Cole for a new single called ‘Acid Rain’. The track was produced by Stargate and written by Sia, the same team behind Rihanna’s #1 smash hit, ‘Diamonds’. Sharp-eared fans will also notice that the EDM number samples Dutch DJ duo Bingo Players‘ ‘Rattle’.
The high-powered dancefloor filler is packed with trancy synthesisers, and emphasises a regretful relationship, one that she likens to soured weather. The 20-year-old is mostly known for her UK hit ‘Happiness’, so it’s not surprising she’s catering to a generic sound that they will eat up over there. Verdict: Messy, but very euro-savvy!
