LISTEN: Alex Bruce raps about her first brushes with puppy love in new single 'Yakap'

Alex Bruce may be a fire rapper, but she's also a 13-year-old girl who isn't immune to crushes – and that's what inspired her latest single, "Yakap."

The song is as pure as a teenage girl's first brushes with puppy love, with tender R&B beats softening Alex's rap verses, which are fierce as ever.

“'Yakap' is all about my crush,” shared the young rapper.

“I’m 13 turning 14 this Christmas, and like a normal teenager, I started to experience weird things like puppy love. So for me to express my feelings, I wrote a song about this person," she said.

The song is a collaboration between Alex, her dad who is currently based in Australia, and music producer Cursebox.

The song was written, recorded, and produced in just two weeks – and in between Alex's online classes.

"Sometimes it’s hard because I have online class and it’s still very different from homeschooling that I’m used to. I’m still adapting to this kind of set up, all of us are," shared Alex, who hails from Batangas City.

For someone so young, she's already released several songs, including her latest single "Go Crazy."

Alex has also performed at half-time shows for PBA games, and appeared in a music video for her hip-hop idol, Ruby Ibarra.
