About Alex Young
It doesn't take a crystal ball to foresee the bright future of Alex Young. There's a reason this pop star has crashed the charts, and now she's about to "Crash This Party."
It's hard to believe Young started out as a regular on "Sesame Street," especially now that she's all grown up and being compared to some of the top female artists in the world like Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Mary J. Blige. That kind of company is rare, especially at a time when that particular group of women are standing as the cream of the crop in the industry.
Young not only wedged her way into a rather crowded pop scene, she kicked open the door while opening for Cee Lo Green at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida back in 2012. She next moved WBLS Summer Stage show in New York City, and has been turning heads at every live appearance.
Fueled by the success of early releases like "Don't Play With Me" and "Government Name," Young rolled out "Crash This Party" in November 2013. The song features legendary Fatman Scoop and went viral in the weeks following its initial release thanks to a booming baseline and lyrics like "Drop it! Lock it! Pop It! Throw It! Tell the DJs to turn it up!" Fans not only feel the beat, they've experienced it around the world thanks to Young's International Club Tour that stopped in London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Japan (among many other places).
You can hear two tracks – "Shut Up & Pucker Up" and "Euphoria" -- from Young's next album by visiting her website at alexyoungmusic.com.
