“Girl Of The Year” is a bright-sounding dream pop track, with warm synths and grooves, out now (October 26) from pop siren ALLIE X. The song appears on her upcoming SUPER SUNSET project.
“It gets to the heart of how it feels to be making your way in the entertainment industry,” says ALLIE X. “It comes from the point of view of an aspiring artist singing to an executive who will hopefully make her dreams come true.”Right from the start, she already understands that even if she makes it, it will only be temporary. There will always be ‘someone younger’ or ‘with longer hair.’ The lyrics sit somewhere between a romantic relationship and a professional one. The track has a timeless, nostalgic sound where the vaporwave influences can be most clearly heard as on of all the songs on Super Sunset.”
X sings, “I’m nothing to ya. That’s what you like. I’m just a battery to keep you energized. If you see me coming, pretend that I’m the only one. I like your lies. If you see me coming, you better show me you’re in love. I like your lies.”

Born Alexandra Hughes, the Toronto native who now calls Los Angeles home emerged on the scene as something of a mystery and ever since has been peeling back the layers, revealing more about herself. The singer/songwriter’s first two projects CollXtion I (2015) & CollXtion II were critically lauded, supercharged pop records that explored the world of X–a place that provides a sanctuary for those unresolved fragments of self, those parts of you that still don’t feel whole or fulfilled. X is the possibility of anything, an identity you can take on while you find your truth. “I’m not an obvious pick,” she says of her rising star thus far. “I’ve always had to find hidden roads to be understood.” Along the way, she has garnered the support from fellow female musical outsiders as Katy Perry, Grimes and Tove Lo as well with her passionate LGBTQ-identifying fans.
