‘Your Smile’ was written with a cool Southern California summer vibe, and is centered around a young girl’s captivating smile that is suddenly noticed by one of her friends, who is looking at her with a different appreciation for the very first time. Her admirer dreams of whisking her away for sandy toes and snow cones on the beach.
“Although ‘Your Smile’ has an element of a boy crushing on a girl, we were really going for more of how you can be friends with someone for the longest time, and all of a sudden realize how wonderful they are. The lyrics are about how she shouldn’t change a thing as she is fly just the way she is,” said Alexander. “It is fun, light and bursting full of summer!”
One of the UK’s top club DJs has done a House Remix of previous hit My Crew. My Crew (Tempo Elektrik Remix) – Tempo Elektrik’s music is supported on KISS FM UK, BBC Radio 1 and Capital Radio in the UK.
Due to the current COVID-19 filming restrictions in Los Angeles, the music video for ‘Your Smile’ was safely made with two of Alexander’s closest friends and one videographer.
The limited crew incorporated all of Malibu’s most gorgeous hotspots, and Alexander’s love for the ocean. Catching the odd wave that drifted by on camera, was a must for the rising star.
Recording his three songs at age twelve during the Los Angeles lockdown, AJ is releasing one song consecutively each month, ‘My Crew’, which released on 07.07, ‘Your Smile’ on 08.08 and next in line is ‘Up To You’ on 09.09. He has a further three records penned for later in the year as well as a special Holiday song.
