Celeb Secrets: Can you tell us how the idea for “She Got It” started, and how the song all came together?

Celeb Secrets: How do you feel this song represents where your sound is right now, and where you hope to take it in the future?

Alex Angelo: My sound right now is older. I just turned 18 and wanted my music to reflect my age. I wanted it to be upbeat and fun. The concept is light and upbeat and that’s what I wanted to create and intend on creating in the near future.

Celeb Secrets: How do you think longtime fans will react as they hear this song from you?

Alex Angelo: I feel like my long-term Fangelos will welcome the new song and hear the growth in my voice and songwriting.

Celeb Secrets: How would you say your music has evolved over the years as you’ve grown up with it?

Alex Angelo: I started making my own music at a very young age of 12. I did a lot of covers before venturing into original music. Things have improved and evolved over the years with both my sound and songwriting. I am proud of all the music I put out. My music reflects where I’m at in my life both good and bad. I hope to continue to grow and get better as I get older.

Celeb Secrets: Do you remember who or what first sparked your interest in music?

Alex Angelo: I got into music through dance. I went to a workshop for the Cleveland Cavaliers when I was 7 years old. I didn’t know it was an actual audition. I ended up making the dance team and fell in love with dance. I learned very quickly. My love for dance then translated into DJ’ing and then singing. As I got older, I then began to write my own music and produce as well.

Celeb Secrets: For Celeb Secrets, would you be able to share a fun secret about the “She Got It” recording process – or the upcoming music video?

Alex Angelo: The video was made at a nightclub in Cincinnati, Ohio. There’s a reference to a Mercedes in the song and so we borrowed a family friend’s car for the video.
