New Music: Alexis Jordan f/ J. Cole – ‘Acid Rain’

Alexis Jordan and J. Cole

Alexis Jordan topped the dance charts in the U.S. and overseas with her debut single “Happiness.” Following the release of her 2011 album, the StarRoc artist (a collaboration between Jay-Z’s Roc Nation and hitmakers Stargate) pulls in some heavy-hitters for the first single from her sophomore album.

The 20-year-old songstress teams with her Roc Nation labelmate J. Cole on “Acid Rain,” produced by Stargate and written by Sia, the team behind Rihanna’s No. 1 single “Diamonds.”

The club anthem, which premiered on Norwegian website 730.no, features a pulsing electro rhythm and two fiery verses from Cole.

Report to the dance floor with Alexis’ triumphant tune.

    Girl is quite fresh.
    But I can’t see this denting the US charts. Good tune though. J.Cole’s verse off the beginning should be cut. Its not required.

    This sounds like Diamonds with a singer & worse production. Don’t like the beat at all. Why couldn’t Alexis have had Diamonds & Rihanna had this. Then I would have been ok with hating this & liking that.

    You can always tell when a record is a song Rihanna turned down, the vocal arrangement says Rihanna all day long.

    The beat a little reminds me the song Nicole Scherzinger ‘don’t hold your breath’, especially part of 0:39-1:05 and also in the second verse..

    Well, Ibrahim is on Twitter bitching about it … so apparently, they just jacked Cole’s verses from a previous song w/o his permission and sped them up. Then, Cole tweeted, “You know me better than that” before deleting it.
