You can catch Lexxicon perform the new tracks live with two shows in Toronto at The Baby G on January 26 and February 23. See below for all details, watch the lyric video for Superstar here, and pre-order the album now.

“Written after my visit to New York last October, Superstar is the perfect track to play after you just got your post-secondary degree, passed your driver’s test, won the lottery or received Christmas money,” Lexxicon says. “It’s a high-energy track embracing being wild, outlandish and celebrating the youthful spirit. This track is club-ready and will get you dancing in no time.”

The song follows Lucky Luckya tribute to Lexxicon’s parents and their bond. “The song was inspired by my parents and their 26 years of marriage and just reflects on how special it is when you find that right person for you,” Lexxicon says of the Artafacts-produced track. “Love is not something to be taken for granted because each time you find it, it’s like winning the lottery. Finding a partner to appreciate you for all your flaws and strengths is the type of love I wish for everyone in the new year.”

Last month, Lexxicon shared a personal track called Lonely, sharing his experience with Crohn’s disease. “Many of us have certain experiences where no matter who is around us we still have to go through it alone. For me, it was begin diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and dealing with the hospital visits, medication changes, and multiple side effects. During that time was when I felt extremely alone and was the inspiration for this song. I just hope putting my feelings to music can help someone going through a similar situation.”

Bashment Trap House’s first single, Fatty Fatty, celebrating inclusion and body positivity. Produced by Kontrabandz, Fatty Fatty is about celebrating life, tying into the project’s overall theme around Lexxicon’s journey as a Jamaican/Canadian artist.
