Aleksa Safiya was born Aleksandra Chhem on January 21, 1999. She continues to stir emotions and admiration from R&B fans worldwide. The singer has awed listeners with her angelic voice and daring lyrics. Her acting in the “Face 2 Face” and “Face 2 Face Pt. 2” music videos shows exactly how bold the youngster is. She has also released two albums, “Introspection” and “Miss Me When I’m Gone.” Despite her rising fame, she remains humble and addresses older females as “ma’am.”
Aleksa Safiya has made a name for herself on the American R&B scene. Born Aleksandra Chhem in Florida, the young singer possesses the talent needed to become as famous as Rihanna. Her Instagram followers affirmed her talent after she posted her 2019 freestyle video for the song ‘Face 2 Face.’
Her first recorded song was ‘Pretty Little Savage.’ Although it had the makings of a hit, it didn’t garner much attention. The artist later posted an Instagram video of herself freestyling ‘Face 2 Face’ in a car. In October 2019, she released the full song and got so many positive remarks that she decided to record a second part of the song two years later. In 2020, she released several singles, including ‘Help,’ and collaborated with Joseph Gaby on ‘Tik Tok.’ In 2021, she worked with Cirok Starr on ‘Hurt’ and released her debut album, “Introspection,” featuring ‘Face 2 Face Pt. 2,’ ‘Without You,’ ‘Know My Name,’ and ‘Cry To Me,’ among eight others. In 2022, she released another album titled “Miss Me When I’m Gone,” including ‘Understand Me,’ ‘Loyalty,’ ‘Insecure,’ and more.
Her songs primarily depict her personal experiences. In an exclusive interview with Haddie Djemal on First Coast News’ “Jax Jams,” she disclosed that losing her dad and cousin and other painful friendship experiences motivate her to write. In ‘Face 2 Face,’ she stresses the importance of physical contact between loved ones and said calls or texts don’t offer the same connection. In addition, most of her song titles carry sad or yearning titles. Early in her musical career, she was targeted by unidentified shooters while in a car with her manager. During the drive-and-shoot assault, their car was shot 30 times, and her manager was hit in the side. Fortunately, she was shaken but escaped unscathed.
