“Magic” is Alexander’s tribute to life after a long battle out of drug problems. The song was written when Alexander came across a blog about a serious illness.
The girl openly shared about her life, although it could be extremely difficult at times. Like many other readers, Alexander found comfort and strength in the blog, and decided to write the song as a tribute to the girl.
After the MGP victory in 2018, Alexander continues to explore dance music, inspired by his favourite Jamiroquai but also by new stars such as the Norwegian popstar Sigrid.
The lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic has inspired Alexander to produce the music himself.
Since March, Alexander has been sitting in his home studio from morning to night, with a desire to constantly evolve.
