Chinese-American Pop Artist ALEX SU Showcases the Rise & Fall of Love in New Single, “Jenga”

Fri Apr 09, 2021

Chinese American pop artist Alex Su stacks the building blocks of love with this, his new single “Jega”.

Drawing some 2012 The Weeknd vibes, he New Jersey-based Su takes audiences on a honeyed journey through the shaky ups and downs of a scenario many have been through: Deep in love, lacking control, carefully investing and building in a relationship… All just to see our efforts, heart, and ego tumble to the ground.

Love can be a playful yet dangerous game and, as the title provides in a clear, almost rough-hewn metaphor, Jenga (the game) is an obsessive and artful combination in concentration, soft movement, careful motions, and general unease. Not to mention, it often ends in a shocking, free-fall of disappointment.

“I love the game of Jenga and, one night, I found similarities between the game and toxic relationships,” he shares. “You keep pulling and hurting each other until the whole thing crumbles down.”
