Good Girl - Alexis Jordan |

Today is Thursday, which means I throw it back for a revisit, and it was obvious I was going to do another Alexis Jordan song because I may not get another chance; plus this song is another banger from her! This, along with "Happiness", may be extremely catchy, but they also become tiresome if you listen too often, this one especially - which might explain the moderate chart placements of this song compared to "Happiness". We won't talk about her follow-ups that just didn't do well at all. Watch Alexis Jordan be fierce in this choreographed dance performance music video of her second single "Good Girl", knocking out the dance sequences perfectly.

Alexis Jordan started off in America's Got Talent in the very first season. She made it to the semi-finals before being eliminated - she was just 14 years old. She then started uploading covers on YouTube, which caught the attention of Stargate and Jay-Z, and therefore kick-started her career in the music industry. However, in 2014, she was dropped from her label and her second studio album never surfaced; although, rumours state that she is set to make a return in the near-future, which I am certainly excited about. This song charted at number six in the UK, we practically loved her over here. It was written by Autumn Rowe, Mikkel S. Eriksen, Tor Erik Hermansen, Petr Brdičko, Sandy Wilhelm, Espen Lind, and Amund Björklund.

Directed by Erik White, the music video is mainly a performance piece with full-on dance choreography throughout. Some scenes look like there was a planned narrative, which may have got cut; instead, leaving us with snapshots of various scenes that doesn't relate all that much.

The dance sequences are on point throughout. There's a couple of main ones, mainly Alexis Jordan performing with her backup dancers. She's in-sync throughout, being confident and sassy whilst maintaining her "Good Girl" charm. There's also another scene where she's dancing with her on-screen love interest who is dancer Hefa Leone Tuita; they show the clear chemistry between them as they nail every dance step.

There are a few different characters that she portrays, from the everyday street woman to the high school geek, from professional dancer to the good girl princess. There's a lot going on but they've made it a good performance piece, it's just difficult to keep up with what's going on at times.
