The Fader named the track on of “10 Songs You Need In Your Life”, Nylon listed is as the “Best Music Releases of the Week”, and Refinery29 said “their ears are very into Lexie.” Building off of this hight, today, Lexie releases her biggest track yet, “Nada”, complete with video.

She is preparing to release her global debut project via 88rising at the top of 2019. Earlier this summer, Lexie Liu announced her signing to 88rising with the worldwide release of “Like A Mercedes”.
