"Listeners are reintroduced to a familiar sound from thirty years ago, as “Fantasy” begins with a drum synthesizer to lead the rhythmic groove behind the livening track. As the musical styles of 80s R&B and Hip-Hop are beginning to reemerge, “Fantasy” paves the way for new musical artists to reintroduce the popular musical sounds to a newer and younger generation. Throughout the song, Axel Jordan uses his sultry vocals and melodic flows to display the intimacy behind the lyrics of the song. Portrayed by a back-up vocalist, the female character responds to positive and romantic thoughts envisioned by the singer."
"The Bass and Piano-infused up-temp track “Shine” showcases Axle Jordan’s versatile vocal range comparable to the likes of Jason DeRulo, while entertaining listeners with the track’s rhythmic instrumentations reminiscent of R&B singer User. To display the emotional impact of the track’s chorus, Axel Jordan brings his vocals to the forefront while belting out lyrics based on an irreplaceable love. The instrumentations behind the track help to create a romantic story between the two subjects. During the introduction of “Shine”, the soothing sounds of the Piano, along with the singer’s gentle vocal approach, are used to create an intimate setting as the narrator confesses his admiration for his love interest. As the song continues, Axel Jordan’s vocals reach a climax as the momentum builds. As Axel Jordan’s vocals become more resonated, listeners are able to feel the emotional impact of the song."
"The New York native's release "Shine" is a joyful arrangement of R&B/pop-goodness that, let's face it, could be in a number of commercials or CW television shows. Than there is an almost opposite feel with "Fantasy" which holds a deep emphasize on beat. This song is sure to be a hit in the dance clubs. Considering Jordan is both a designer of clothes and a writer and performer of music, it is easy to see why he may follow in the footsteps of others in those categories such as Sean Combs and Kanye West (sans the rapping). Shine marks this internationally renowned model and dancer's second foray into the musical fold, having put out the well received single “Release Me” in 2013."
"New York native AxelJordan is an up and coming talented dude who has his name in many different facets of the entertainment industry. He has launched his clothing brand “SHANE By AxelJordan” which incorporates street style inspiration and a modern aesthetic for many different body types. On top of that, he released his debut album on iTunes called “Shine” which features the title track and other single out right now “Fantasy”, which he is in the midst of a big radio campaign for the album. With all this craziness, we were happy to get him to sit down and talk about his huge success and what he has going on for the future. Check it out."
"New York heartthrob, AxelJordan, said Dec. 9 in an exclusive interview that he's back in the studio, working hard on a Christmas-themed project. Despite his hectic touring schedule and extensive time in the studio, AxelJordan found a few moments to sit down and discuss what he's been working on this year, and what else is in store for him in the months ahead. Here's what he had to say ..."
"Axel really does a have a heart of gold! It was such a pleasure to have him on the show to talk about his career, new album and more!"
"Shine is the second new single from AxelJordan, and provides listeners with a wholly different sound than was broached during Fantasy. There is a dirty and sultry sound that will have listeners on the dance floor, with just a hint of the more emotive and intense vocals that have been a hallmark of previous AxelJordan singles. I feel that the track has greater crossover appeal than Fantasy, as AxelJordan’s vocal abilities are put to the test. The sheer range that he has in his singing showcases that there is substantial talent coming with each following line, while furthering the overall harmony and tenor of the track. The instrumental and vocal elements combine to create one of the most compelling and catchy tracks that we have covered this year; fans should keep their ear firmly to the great about AxelJordan."

"Fantasy is a high tempo track that works well in pop and R&B formats. A lively drum line, strong Jason Derulo meets Chris Brown vocal style, and a secondary female vocal that provides additional differentiation and complexity to the effort. The shuffling beat provided with this track stands as a bold, unique approach. The production is at a high enough quality that the effort could easily be played on radio rotation, while AxelJordan’s vocals are distinct enough that listeners can easily associate subsequent singles with him going forward."
