Alex Mali – “Start It Up” single
“I’m being honest, I don’t like to get my hopes up. Never liked to get my heart crushed. Tell me now if this is over. ‘Fore we start it up.” – lyrics
‘Start It Up’ tells an interesting tale of an honest young woman who loves hard, falls in-love even harder, and puts her trust in people too much. Therefore, before diving into deep waters with her new beau, she questions his intentions. Is he it for the long haul or just wants to hit and run? Later, she admits that she doesn’t want to play any games, or be a Gameboy or a temporary love toy.
Alex Mali, the self-proclaimed Green Queen, was raised with a rich heritage stemming from a Jamaican mother and a Trinidadian father. Her music takes listeners on a sonic voyage through emotional realms filled with relatable subject matters.
“Start It Up” is featured on her debut EP, entitled, “Sweet & Sour”.
