Well-known for her trademark powerful performances and unique concepts, power rookie AleXa is back to showcase her stunning talents once more with the unveiling of “Villain”, the pre-release single of her upcoming 2nd mini-album.
On July 16, AleXa unveiled the pre-release single, “Villain”, to her upcoming mini-album DECOHERENCE. The new track highlights AleXa’s edgy and artistic sides while combining the elements of urban sounds and EDM trap.
The track was composed by 8PEX and Megan Lee, whose track record spans from EXO to Lee Hi. Hwang Sung Jin, the main producer of RBW Entertainment meanwhile, contributed to the Korean lyrics.
The dynamic and explosive range of ‘Villain’ only heightens AleXa’s artistry and further accentuates her visual and edgy artistic expression. It’s set to blow everyone off of their seats!

The MV for “Villain” further highlights her artistic side with an irresistible combo of her amazing acting skills as a crazy villain and perfectly choreographed dance breaks that add a dynamic edge to the MV directed by Zanybros.
As a continuation of the cinematic universe from her prior releases, the MV for “Villain” shows the continuation of AleXa’s battle against a mysterious foe. Furthermore, the music video serves as a hint to the storyline that will be featured in her upcoming album.
This chapter of AleXa’s multiverse storyline was made to showcase AleXa’s versatile talents and explores the complications of her character with a tribute to bad heroes. AleXa’s duality is what makes her a strong performer, and we hope the audience can enjoy her charismatic yet tough performance.”

AleXa is the first artist to debut under Zanybros, one of Korea’s largest production houses that have produced more than 1,300 MVs for top artists like BTS, EXO, MAMAMOO, and more. She’s also signed with ICM Partners, home to stars like Nicki Minaj and Khalid.
Although she already has a long list of amazing accomplishments including breaking into the Top 10 of Billboard‘s World Digital Song Sales chart in the first week of Bomb‘s release and making her highly-successful global debut with Do Or Die, she’s excited to share new kinds of duality through her 2nd mini-album and pre-release single.
We went all day all night, but the dark and light is what brings a new kind of duality to ‘Villain’. I absolutely love this song and all the teams that worked hard to make it happen.
She will be unveiling her debut performance of “Villain” during her first live concert CTRL + AleXA [ENTER] the AleXa Universe. Her concert, which will utilize everything from augmented reality to production technology to deliver a unique experience to her audience, will be held on July 18 in Korea.
