EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: ALITA’s ‘Watermelon Sugar’ Music Video

By  | 

Stage Right Secrets is thrilled to exclusively premiere ALITA’s “Watermelon Sugar” music video.

ALITA’s cover of Harry Styles’ hit is a breath of fresh air that you will have stuck in your head for days to come. The reimagined breezy summertime tune was recorded in her home studio while ALITA worked with her producer over FaceTime. She even filmed and edited the music video herself.

“That’s a really good thing that has come from social distancing – it’s required me to think outside whatever boxes I’ve constructed in my mind about my own creative limitations,” she admitted.

“This cover of ‘Watermelon Sugar’ has been a blast to work on – from reimagining the production, to creating a social distancing visual to accompany it,” she shared.

“People need to feel a sense of peace, nostalgia and joy in their lives right now and this song is carefree, happy, and sensual,” Alita continued. “It feels like summertime and sunshine, and I’ve had a ton of fun putting my own little spin on it. I hope my rendition gives people a few minutes to pause and take a deep breath in the midst of everything happening in the world, so we can continue to fight the good fight of justice.”

“I hope listeners feel empowered and confident in their skin! I hope they feel like laying in the grass, under the sun. I hope they feel like dancing around in their underwear. I hope they feel like kissing their lovers. I hope they smile!”
