First music video: Alicia G presents “Shake Down”
Country-pop singer-songwriter Alicia G unveils her brand new single/music video, “Shake Down”, on the heels of “Daisy Duke Two Step”.
Born and raised in upstate New York, Alicia G got her start on the national pageant circuit, spending a lot of time in the countryside, where she picked up her charming Southern accent. Later, when she started her career in music, she blended her passion for country with her New York roots in an infectious sound influenced by pop and hip-hop.
Speaking about her early days in music, Alicia G told CelebMix, “I come from a very musical background. My grandfather was in a 12 piece orchestra playing the piano and my dad got his way through college playing drums in a band. Between family musical training, classical piano lessons, singing lessons and classical opera lessons, I developed my love for music.
In 2015, Alicia G burst onto the scene with the release of “Pretty Girl”, her electro-pop hit. She followed with a string of hit singles. The AG Army, Alicia G’s three million fan base, was born from her arrival on the Bigo Live streaming app. Recently, Alicia G was signed as an influencer and started streaming live on Mico World as AliciaGWorld.
The video for “It’s Little But It Jiggles”, produced by Andrew Lane and released in 2020, went viral, racking up over 1.4 million views in just five days.
“Shake Down” opens with thick, shiny guitars over a mid-tempo beat brimming with a deep bassline. Alicia G’s voice, low and seductive, imbues the lyrics with delicious and inviting timbres.
“Old Chevy pickup on the road / Let my hair down, let it shine like gold / Got a hunk I wanna show off / Bad and Boujee is all I know.”
The video, shot at the Legacy Equestrian Center, shows Alicia G on horseback, followed by an outdoor barbecue with corn on the cob and fried chicken. Images of Alicia G with her horse, dancing and enjoying the company of friends give the visuals an enchanting feel and an idyllic glow.
Alicia G is on a roll! With “Shake Down” he simultaneously parades his luxurious, evocative voice and his charismatic presence.
