Alex Bruce releases new bubbly, infectious jam, Yakap

11/03/2020 01:39:12 AM

Young emerging rapper Alex Bruce has recently released her new song, the infectious Tagalog-written “Yakap.”

The latest track boasts intricately laced with dreamy atmospherics and infectious beats charismatic enough to sweep listeners off their feet as this artist deals with her first-hand experience on puppy love and infatuation – a thematically fitting theme for her age. 
“Yakap is all about my crush,” the bubbly newcomer fondly shares the inspiration behind the urban jam. “Well, if you guys didn’t know, I’m 13 turning 14 this Christmas, and as a normal teenager, I started to experience weird things like puppy love. So for me to express my feelings, I wrote a song about this person.”
The song was a three-way collaboration with Alex Bruce, her dad, who is currently in Australia, and music producer Cursebox. The songwriting, recording, and production were done in a span of two weeks, with the involved heads brainstorming and working together through Zoom meetings to discuss matters related to the new track. Alex adds, “Sometimes it’s hard because I have an online class and it’s still very different from homeschooling that I’m used to. I’m still adapting to this kind of set up, all of us are.”

For what it’s worth, “Yakap” truly has the makings of another game-changing hit. It’s another testament to Alex Bruce’s incredibly compelling talent as a rapper, singer, and lyricist—a triple-threat that will surely go to places in the many years to come. Prior to penning the track, Bruce has been making a couple of slickly empowering produced anthems such as Pull It Off and Mind As A Weapon – both proven a million-view garnering songs. Not to mention, the 13-year old  rapper/songwriter has recently teamed up with global hitmaker August Rigo, whose songwriting and production credits include BTS’ “Black Swan” and Justin Bieber’s multi-platinum album, My World 2.0, for the trap banger “Go Crazy.” Certainly, there's a brighter future ahead for this feisty newcomer despite facing a challenging year for the country's music scene in general.
