New Music: Alex 242 f/ Eve – ‘Let ‘Em Know’

Alex 242 and Eve

Eve touches down with jet-setting verses on newcomer Alex 242’s debut single “Let ‘Em Know.” The Bahamian singer stays fly over the bass-heavy ladies’ anthem produced by Dallas Austin, who signed her to his label Rowdy Entertainment/Interscope.

The island gal, born Alex Christie, explained how she got her name. “[242 is] my area code,” she said. “I’m proud of it and I grew up there… I want everyone to know I’m from the Bahamas.”

She cites Lady Gaga, M.I.A., and Gwen Stefani among her influences. “My album is fused heavily with island music, pop laced with dubstep, and a little urban flare,” she shared.

    I don’t know what ya’ll was listening to but this song is straight garbage. I did enjoy EVE’s rap verse . . . maybe Dallas should just produce a song for Eve.

    It’s a catchy song, but not my cup of tea. She’s beautiful! I think this song is a great pick as a debut single. It represents her style! And, of course, it’s very empowering for young girls and women.

    I dont see it making top 70 on the billboards. Not a strong chick or club song if that’s what they were going for, probably a song for a 6hr road trip when I’m already out of it and the radio is just playing for playing sake.

    Average voice but beautiful face…anyway America doesnt need another island girl we’re satisfied with Rhianna, this isn’t no sing your way to a green card fiasco… that sh8t is already played out

    definitely love that another island gyal is getting her shine and I love the island flare but I’m not really feeling the song. I don’t see it being a hit and I don’t really think this is a good first single. Eve definitely did her thing and made the song better but this isn’t single material.
