By popular demand, Dax has finally released the highly-anticipated music video for his country music crossover remix, “Dear Alcohol,” featuring Grammy-nominated recording artist Elle King. Directed by Logan Meis, the video is an up-close look at the road to sobriety, a transformative experience that’s freeing for both artist and audience.
“It was amazing to join forces with Elle King on this remix and tackle a problem millions are fighting in silence,” shares Dax. “The impact is touching lives and this visual adds depth to already powerful lyrics.”
As an independent artist, Dax has amassed over half a billion streams to date for the undeniably groundbreaking success of his catalog, which subsequently resulted in his partnership with RECORDS, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. “Dear Alcohol” featuring Elle King is a crooning, emotive track from the buzzing Canadian rapper that showcases his melodic delivery and introspective lyricism.
The shared vulnerability between Dax and Elle amounts to a record that sounds like none other: “As musicians, it’s our job to talk about all sides of life and I commend Dax for addressing this issue,” shares King. “I was honored to join him on this song to help shine a light for so many who are struggling.”
When Dax’s open-verse challenge for his viral song took social media by storm, Elle delivered a verse that revealed her inner world more fully and fearlessly than ever before. King also made history with the No.1 double-Platinum country hit “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).”
Over the years, Dax has released a pocket of steadily improving, increasingly popular singles. Everything that he does branches beyond the boundaries of playing it safe. However, a closer examination reveals that his immersive storytelling inspires larger conversations about love, personal growth, and everyday struggles.
Billboard charting artist Dax has made a name for himself in the music industry by creating his own lane of topic driven music that generates conversation. In 2018, Dax dropped his first project, It’s Different Now, which included tracks featuring O.T. Genasis and Futuristic. The album charted in the top 10 iTunes hip-hop charts. Following the success of his first album, Dax released his first breakout single, “She Cheated Again” which has over 20 million views on YouTube and over 5 million streams on Spotify. Dax continued his success with the release of his single, “Dear God,” which created impactful online traction and was trending in four different countries (U.S., Canada, India and the UK) on YouTube. That video has over 48 million views and over one million likes, making him the first independent artist ever to pull such a feat. His previous single JOKER hit 35 million views. Other hit singles include “My Heart Hurts” (16M views), “I Need a Break” (7M views), “Gotham”(7.1M views), “All Night Long” (7.3M views) and many more. In 2019, Dax headlined his own tour in both the US and Canada. Dax’s ultimate goal is to take meaningful lyrics and disguise them into his melodies. This is what drives his obsession to put something into the world that will last forever.
