GALXARA – Jealous Of Myself
“An artist committed to fearless expression, GALXARA provides a refreshingly honest message of self-love atop a sci-fi-inspired beat for this latest song, and there’s an otherworldly music video to accompany, too.” – V MAGAZINE
Atlantic Records has announced the new single from GALXARA. “Jealous Of Myself” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services; the anthemic track, produced by Warren “Oak” Felder (Alessia Cara, Rihanna, Demi Lovato), is accompanied by a captivating official video, streaming now at YouTube HERE following its exclusive premiere earlier today via V Magazine.
GALXARA battles with the different sides of herself in the new “Jealous Of Myself” music video. She confronts FURY, MANIA, and VANITY- characters that represent exaggerated versions of the worst sides of herself. All of the emotions combine to create the real GALXARA, who is complex and continuously evolving. “I am in a constant battle and growth cycle of trying to be better and slowly chip away at each of those identities within me,” GALXARA explains. “It will probably take a lifetime but as long as I’m trying to be a better person every day and not let those ‘characters’ rule over me, then I win.”
Recently named by Idolator as one of “40 Artists To Watch In 2020,” GALXARA is also featured among the incredible female artists on BIRDS OF PREY: THE ALBUM, Atlantic Records’ star-studded, all-female musical companion to the blockbuster new film from Warner Bros. Pictures. “Sway With Me,” performed by Saweetie & GALXARA, is accompanied by a colorful companion video that has earned more than 5 million views via YouTube alone.
Along with its popular success, “Sway With Me” earned critical praise for GALXARA, prompting Billboard to rave, “GALXARA flaunts her badass vocals in the verses, as she tears up a street market and rides around in a yellow convertible. The tune is complete with a swanky chorus thanks to a sample from Dean Martin’s ‘Sway.’” MTV praised her as one of the next big pop stars, saying “GALXARA is ready for intergalactic pop domination. It’s her universe, we’re just living in it.” Perhaps Ones To Watch said it best: “Once GALXARA’s earth-shattering vocal enters, it’s easy to see that we are in the presence of greatness. As if Freddie Mercury and Bebe Rexha produced a vocal love child, the 19-year-old wunderkind riffs through the first verse with ease while stunning her listeners with her out-of-this-dimension vocal range and power.”
“Jealous Of Myself” follows GALXARA’s compelling debut single, “Waste My Youth,” co-written with Warren “Oak” Felder and Michael Pollack (Kelly Clarkson, Lizzo). The fantastical companion video, directed by NORTON (Danny Brown, Panic! At The Disco) and Dawid Krepski (Foster The People, Animal Collective), is streaming now via YouTube HERE. “Waste My Youth” sees GALXARA taking inspiration from such like-minded visionaries as Freddie Mercury and Lady Gaga, melding classic sounds with contemporary power. “Don’t you know my time’s like a million dollars? GALXARA sings on the opening line of her emotionally charged song, complete with a dynamic chorus and pulsating synths,” raved PAPER, adding, “In her celestial music video, GALXARA wears various sequined ensembles with geometric prints, blurring the lines of fantasy and reality. I want to waste my youth on you, she sings while incandescently glowing in outer space, transcending time as multi-colored crystals float around her.”
