Video: ALX – “Love On Top” (Acoustic)
The Naples, FL Riser and His Guitarist Climb Onto a Roof to Perform a Stripped-Down Version of a Highlight From ALX’s Debut EP The Fantasy
“Bursting with personality, the laid-back, fun effort proves that talent runs strong in the Fike genes, and we can’t wait for more from the promising young star.” – HillyDilly
“ALX’s sound is an engrossing fusion between pop and hip-hop, creating a sound and vibe all his own.” – Ones To Watch
Part of a flourishing Naples, FL music scene that also includes his brother Dominic Fike, ALX is one of his region’s most distinctive voices. Showing off his vocal chops in a stripped-down performance, ALX shares a video for “Love On Top” (Acoustic). Released in April, “Love On Top” is an impossibly catchy ode to domestic bliss, as ALX waxes rhapsodic about a lazy day with his bae: “Let’s spend some downtime baby/Keep me around like baby/Turn off your phone just for the night.” In the new video performance of “Love On Top,” ALX performs the song on a rooftop, accompanied only by the acoustic guitar stylings of his friend Ben Chandler, proving that ALX doesn’t need studio tricks to captivate with his inimitable voice. Rapidly approaching 1 million streams on Spotify, “Love On Top “is the lead single from The Fantasy, ALX’s debut EP, released in May.
Borrowing the taffy-like melodies and crunchy guitars of pop-punk, the shifting vocal rhythms of hip-hop, and the smoothness of R&B, ALX’s songs tell breezy relationship stories with a wry sense of humor. Along with “Love On Top,” the EP boasts highlights like “Misses, FL,” which earned over 320k views on its dreamy music video, and the rock-accented, sweetly romantic “Crash“ (600k YouTube views). With over 2 million total streams, The Fantasy EP is currently available for stream and purchase via Alamo Records.
A native of Naples, FL, ALX is an integral part of a thriving pop scene in his city, along with ripmattblack, Capi, and ALX’s brother Dominic Fike. Stay tuned for much more from ALX, including a new EP, in the coming weeks and months.

ALX is a singer/songwriter hailing from Naples, Florida, who is signed to Alamo Records. In the beachside town of Naples, ALX cut his teeth making music with his older brother, Dominic Fike, and other friends including Ben Chandler, ripmattblack, and Capi.
The younger Fike’s genre-blending, in-your-face pop sounds are an amalgamation of his love of artists such as Justin Timberlake and Mariah Carey, and a conscious ear for the cutting edge alternative rock and hip hop music being made by some of his long-time collaborators. With charm to burn and a one-of-one sense of humor, Alx captivates audiences with his hilarious social media presence and eye-popping tattoos, as a cherry-on-top of his incredible musical abilities.
ALX released his debut EP The Fantasy in May 2020 via Alamo Records..
