Parisalexa today shares her debut full-length project, 2 Real. Traversing the ups and downs of romance, celebrating her self-worth, body-image, her blackness, and more, the 21-year-old’s debut shines with springy ’90s era R&B bops, soulful ballads, and mid-’00s hip-hop inspired jams. “This project,” says Paris, “is an invitation to the listener, whoever they are, to be themselves and to celebrate themselves.” A radiant, intimate conversation about what’s really good, listen HERE.
With her impressive vocals and commanding presence, both on the mic and on the stage, Parisalexa, a.k.a. Paris Alexa Williams has garnered comparisons to legends like Monica, Brandy, and Faith Evans, as well as praise from DJ Booth, NPR Music, Genius, KEXP, HotNewHipHop, and more. Earlier this year, Paris joined Xavier Omar on tour and has also shared the stage with Ivy Sole, Blossom, Sango, and more.
In a city historically most recognized for its grunge and rock acts, Parisalexa stands at the fore of Seattle’s rapidly growing and diversifying hip hop and R&B scene. Her journey from regional sensation to nationally rising R&B star is now culminating with the release of 2 Real.
