Los Angeles-based Bubble Rockstress Alexa Villa kicked off her 2022 with her latest single, “Good Girl“. The track, which can be heard now below, is about defying gender norms and the societal rules placed on women and finding freedom, femininity and empowerment.
The accompanying music video for “Good Girl” is a nostalgic clip that fits perfectly with the song’s assertive punk rock edge and Alexa’s empowering vocals.
Of the song, she said, “I wrote ‘Good Girl’ about all the times I felt I was not taken seriously as a woman in my industry and in my relationships. I wrote it about all the times I’ve felt confused about my place in the world and the times I felt like I needed to hide. I wrote this song to redefine what a ‘Good Girl’ is. I’ve caught myself and I’ve seen so many of my friends, strong and beautiful women, altering themselves to fit inside the box that was created for us. Why do we have to wear pink, have the perfect body, or be quiet and look pretty to be feminine? And if we do live outside the box why do we as women then become stereotypes? I wrote this song at a time when I was frustrated and angry about the rules. Rules that were so clearly made to be broken. I don’t have to be anything but myself to be a woman. I wake up everyday and get to decide who I want to be. That’s what this song is about.”
