Alexa Cappelli – Someone Better

In her brand new single, rising pop singer-songwriter Alexa Cappelli opens up about moving on and letting someone go when the relationship is no longer working. The piano ballad, titled “Someone Better,” showcases Cappelli’s strong vocals and vulnerable side, something she is known for among her core fans and listeners. 

“I wish that this was easy / Don’t wanna believe it / And I wish I could be mad / But it’s not like you yelled at me / Or said something terribly wrong / I’ll keep the memories close / But I’m letting you go / There’s just no remedy / Watching our spark turn to smoke / We’ve got nothing to show / No, I can only hope / That you know that I know / I could never dream of someonе better than you / Just someonе better for me.”

“‘Someone Better’ is the realization that the relationship you’re in doesn’t fit the life you’re living for,” Cappelli says about her new single. “There’s nothing wrong with the other person, in fact, there’s really only good. But you know the future holds more growth and love for both of you apart, rather than together. Choosing yourself is way more difficult when you aren’t mad at this person who has only ever treated you right. But moving forward, there will be a day when you meet someone somewhere who does the same and is also growing in the same direction.”

Dubbed by MTV as a “voice of a generation,” Cappelli is starting a new journey in the music world having just signed with Arista Records last year. The southern California native had gotten her musical start on Season 14 of The Voice. She was on Team Kelly, but her journey got cut short during the Live Playoffs. She continued on to release her own music and attend college. However, she then decided to leave college early and focus on music full-time. Over the years, she’s released singles that amassed millions of streams and gained critical acclaim from publications, such as 1883 Magazine and Just Jared.

Her most notable singles include “Body Language,” “SAY SOMETHING,” “Whiplash,” and “Forbidden.” In 2022, she independently released her first EP titled Confused @ 22. Pop music fans were drawn to her raw and emotion-filled lyrics that speak about feelings and situations that are universal and many can relate to. It’s evident that Cappelli is wise beyond her years and not shy about opening up to her fans and listeners. It’s a trait that many artists strive for their whole careers, but Cappelli isn’t shying away from embracing it.
