AleXa Releases Single 'sick' Ahead of "sick of you" US Tour

Female powerhouse AleXa kicks off 2024 with the release of her highly anticipated single, "sick." This track marks a pivotal moment in AleXa's career, following her history-making performances at iHeart Radio's Jingle Ball as the first solo Korean artist in December.

Notably, AleXa exclusively performed "sick" during Jingle Ball and on The Kelly Clarkson Show before its official release date, offering a sneak peek into her new era of artistic expression. After selling out three fan-meeting stops during her first U.S. visit, AleXa has prepared a new and exciting performance, and she is ready to embark on another U.S. tour brought to you by Studio PAV this spring.

"sick" delves into the complexities of a toxic relationship, exploring the inner turmoil of one side lacking self-love while feeling undeserving of the seemingly perfect partner. AleXa poignantly expresses the universal struggle of being blinded by rose-tinted glasses while in love, being unable to fully embrace the love bestowed upon oneself due to low self-worth, creating an interesting narrative. Throughout the accompanying music video, AleXa is fighting this version of her boyfriend that she used to put on a pedestal. The climax of the video, where she metaphorically battles and "kills" the idealized version of her boyfriend, signifies her liberation from the toxic influence and her determination to move forward independently. "sick" thus serves as a poignant reminder of the strength inherent in self-discovery and the pursuit of healthy love.

Unlike any of her previous singles since her 2019 debut, "sick" sees AleXa embracing her early 2000's pop-punk roots, drawing inspiration from iconic artists like Avril Lavigne. This evolution in her sound reflects a bold and authentic exploration of her musical identity, setting the stage for what promises to be a remarkable chapter in her career. Speaking about this transformative phase, AleXa shares, "This era of my career feels like the most authentic version of myself. ‘sick’ is a departure from my previous releases, and I'm excited to share a side of me that is deeply connected to my pop-punk influences." As AleXa gears up for a year of continuous artistic exploration, "sick" serves as the inaugural release leading into a series of singles throughout 2024.
