THE transition from a group member to a solo career may prove daunting for many. However, singjay Alexx A-Game is more than equal to the task.

The former bass guitarist/vocalist of Di Blue Print band is looking to his upcoming single to give him that big break.

The track, Double, is scheduled for release on August 31. It features Canadian hip-hop artiste Tory Lanez.

“There is a deep thought process involved behind the inspiration for this song. I have shared the idea of struggling and hustling in this song for my fans,” said Alexx A-Game. “Double is for all the individuals out there,” who are trying to make a living out of the struggle.”

Produced by former group member Vern Hill, the song is on the singjay's Real and True imprint. It is however, available for pre-release on all major digital platforms.

Double has been getting a buzz and has been featured in The Source Magazine and Hip Hop Weekly.

“So far, I am very grateful to my fans for their overwhelming support,” he said.

Alexx A-Game (given name Alex Gallimore) hails from the parish of St Ann. He received his secondary education at William Knibb Memorial High in Falmouth.

He was a member of Di Blue Print band for two years. That band won the Global Battle of the Bands competition in The Scala in London in 2012, defeating 13 bands from various countries including England, Cyprus, Finland, Lebanon, Norway, The Bahamas, and Australia.

In addition to the singjay and Hill (on keyboards), Di Blue Print comprised drummer Kedron Kennedy, and Elton Brown on guitar and vocals. The group disbanded in 2014.

Alexx A-Game went solo the same year.

“I released A-Game Everyday mixtape in 2014 with a video. It was good, as people took me serious, making the transition from musician to artiste,” he told the Jamaica Observer's weekly Splash. “Being a musician has helped my music in terms of production and I'm no stranger to the stage.”

Alexx A-Game's other singles include I Know and Go Harder.
