Get ready for your new favorite weirdo alt pop track: “Lemon” by SMITH. We’re talking Nintendo sound effects, industrial-sounding plugins, a mushroom trip of a music video and an oddly catchy nasally voice from the lead singer who hides both her face and her identity from fans. Lemon admits that in this song, “I am the LEMON.” Whoever she is, she sounds like a good time! This downtempo hit has a driving beat and a catchy hook that will stay in your head for hours. Guaranteed!
Grammy Nominated Artist/Producer/Writer SMITH is back with “LEMON” a catchy Alternative Pop single with an infectious hook that you’ll be singing all day. Already Top 50 at both Rhythmic and Top 40 Radio and with a TikTok campaign that’s going viral with 75+ million views, this “LEMON” is definitely sweet not bitter! When asked what inspired “LEMON” SMITH says, “In this song, I am the LEMON”.
With over 100 million streams worldwide, SMITH is coming off a career year that saw her nominated for a Grammy as a writer/producer on the Jack Harlow album as well as becoming the only female artist to EVER have a Billboard Top 40 charting song at Alternative Radio (SCAB) and Urban Radio (Poppin’ Them Tags).
Despite all her success, SMITH has NEVER revealed her face or her identity. SMITH says, “The simple truth is, I hate seeing myself. I don’t know why, not exactly. Maybe it’s a disorder of some kind. Maybe it’s society and what I’m told a woman is to look like. Maybe it’s that it feels a little vain to me. Maybe it’s that I’m too vein. Maybe it’s a fear of people. Maybe image is a game I’m not equipped to play or keep up with. Maybe I’m afraid it’ll take something from the art vs. add to it. Maybe it’s my past. Maybe it’s my programming. Maybe I’m messed up and tomorrow it’ll all be different. It’s hard to know what might happen. Hopefully I won’t be this afraid forever. I just do what I can. The most important thing is the music. I live in service of the songs.”
