Name: Alex G.
Song: ”Die In Your Arms” by Justin Bieber
Why we’re obsessed: We’re dying for Alex G, who makes Justin Bieber’s new single “Die In Your Arms” one of her own with her soulful voice.
The beachy scenery in her music video adds a perfect romantic touch to this acoustic cover and has me wondering what JB will do with the original. Will it include the real Selena Gomez and him walking on the beach hand-in-hand (d’aw) or just another look-a -like?
Alex’s version is pretty dayam passionate and puts a nice female twist on the popstar’s track. She slows it down a whole lot, though we’re kind of missing the Jackson 5 element. Give it a listen and you’ll realize why Alex’s version received over 60,000 views in less than a week!
Watch it here:
Background: Singer/songwriter Alex G. hails from Colorado and started singing publicly just over a year ago. She covers mostly pop and Top 40 music and uploads it to her YouTube channel, which she started in 2010.
Think of T-Swift and Lady Antebellum, though she has a few original tracks as well. She has teamed up with fellow YouTube musician Tyler Ward, and even went on tour with him last fall. She’s definitely on my radar and I can’t wait to hear more!
