Chicago-born R&B/soul artist itoldLexi has today released her brand new single, the self-assured and sultry Get It Right. The track showcases Lexi’s captivating vocals and silky harmonies, which are complemented by the yearning lyrics. The outro hears Lexi at her most vulnerable, and perfectly encapsulates her dynamic range accompanied only by piano.

Lexi has said of the track, “For most, breakups are never clean cut and easy and this one is no different. Get It Right is a song about cheating, backsliding, third parties and lying. Imagine finding out your ex was cheating on you with an old friend, then circled back to try and win your heart back, but the entire time they were dating the new girl… the one they cheated with. It’s a circle conversation and an unwarranted love triangle highlighting that, whether we are together or not, we simply just cannot get it right.”

The London-based artist is also gearing up for not one, but two shows this month and next. Lexi will appear at Piano Smithfield in Farringdon on 14th July, for ‘Hot Vox presents: An Audience With: itoldLexi + support’. Here, she will not only perform but also be joined by her producer Ronavella, who will do a guided talk about Lexi’s songwriting process and some of the messaging in her music, tying in her experiences as a female Black artist in the music industry today.

Lexi’s passions go further than just music; she is an activist for civil rights, gender equality and black culture, which she explored through her academic research. She did so at both Berklee College of Music in Boston where she studied Professional Music with an emphasis on Songwriting, and more recently at the prestigious Institute of Contemporary Music Performance, where she got herMaster of Arts in Songwriting. Lexi was featured on National Public Radio (NPR) for advocating Black Lives Matter in her songs and collaborating with young artists around the world on social justice campaigns. More recently, Lexi was a featured panellist for the ‘F-List Conference’ in London, speaking on Black Feminism and how that influences her music and artistry.

2019 saw Lexi release her debut EP, With Love, Lexi. This was a big year for the singer, not only did she graduate from Berklee, she also released some of her most popular music to date, namely Just Breathe,  and Favorite Type. As a newly independent artist, Lexi’s most recent tracks include For You and Balance, which were both released earlier this year.
