Diego based Pop/Soul vocalist and songwriter Danielle Alexa
releases the video for "Spin In Circles" featuring Laganja
Estranja and Gia Gunn of RuPaul's Drag Race.
Shot in La Jolla, California, the 23-year-old out artist transforms
into a drag king before a night out on the town with her girlfriends.
It's an endeavor that tackles the concept of gender. As with
her video cohorts, Alexa wants to show the world she has an
unashamed, strong sense of self. The support of her friends
allows her to harness the courage to reflect that visually.
"I wanted to make a fun and thought provoking video for 'Spin
In Circles,'" Alexa tells Billboard.
"The video illustrates coming to terms with one's self in a
deep haze of smoke. It is about fluidity being acceptable, and
one's ability to be themselves."
"Laganja Estranja and Gia Gunn are two of my favorite people
from RuPaul's Drag Race. They have the courage to be
absolutely fabulous, and I was so happy that they wanted to
take part in my new video."
brings a tool kit laden with melodic and memorable soul pop
hooks encased in hi-level musicianship. Influenced by classic
Motown era talent including Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross as
well as artists like Chaka Khan, The Gap Band, and New Edition,
Alexa connects with music that evokes emotion through both tone
and lyrics. Her melody driven sound conveys an array of feelings
from upbeat and pop to insightful and heavy.
"Spin In Circles" follows Alexa's debut single, "Daydreams."
