The Daily Grind—Monday, December 20

By DJ Grind

Newcomer Alexis Jordan struck gold in 2010 with her chart-topping dance single, "Happiness." She's on the verge of another massive hit with "Good Girl"—a track that's been transformed into an arena-sized, hands-in-the-air club anthem by the legendary Freemasons.

Eighteen-year old Alexis seems poised to be America's next big pop star. She has real vocal talent, and her mixed Puerto Rican / African-American heritage gives her broad appeal. And, she's loved by the gays—and has performed at Pride and circuit events across the country. Personally, I'm a huge Alexis fan—I still go crazy whenever a DJ drops "Happiness" on the dance floor, I loved playing "Good Girl" at Fresh last night, and I expect even bigger things from her with a new album in 2011!
