Brooklyn born singer-songwriter Alex Mali has gained popularity among fans with her signature green hair and unique brand of R&B. In 2016, the half Trinidadian, half Jamaican artist splashed on to the scene after her track ‘Phenom’ went viral. In 2019 Alex released her debut highly-anticipated EP ‘Sweet & Sour’ and has since made appearances at the VFiles NYFW SS19 Runway Show alongside Lil Kim at the Barclays Center and the BET Awards Sprite Commercials. Her latest track, ‘Problem’ stays true to her distinctive, arty brand of Alternative R&B.
The track begins with a funky bass chord which is quickly joined by soft sounds of Alex panting and a deep bassline. Mali’s lax vocals and soft yet edgy melodies create a sound that is minimal but overflowing with spunk. The visuals for the track are equally as artistic as it displays a close up of Mali’s luscious lips and eyes through a spotlight accentuated against a black background.
