Celeb Secrets: Can you tell us what inspired your new song “Break a Bottle,” and the story behind the track?
Lexxi Saal: The inspiration for “Break a Bottle” came from me wanting to write a dance song inclusive to every one who like me wants to have a good time. It was important for me to incorporate a fresh way to express my thoughts.
Celeb Secrets: How would you describe your sound, and the vibe you want to put out there with your music?

Lexxi Saal: When it comes to some classics, I love Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse, and Elvis. Some current artists that inspire me are Adele, Macklemore, Tom Misch, Sia, James Arthur, and Elle King.
Celeb Secrets: Have you ever picked up any advice or inspiration from the artists you’ve gotten to work with so far in your career?
Lexxi Saal: More of an example than advice, is working hard and being driven, fierce and relentless. If you don’t hustle, no one’s gonna hustle for you.
Celeb Secrets: If you could go back and give your younger self some advice or encouragement, what do you think you would say?
Lexxi Saal: Growing up and finding your place can be very hard, especially today with many social pressures. But once you’ve grown into your skin and learned to love it, it’s the skin you’re supposed to be in no matter what.
Celeb Secrets: What do you think younger you would think about your current projects?
Lexxi Saal: Younger me would be proud of the growth as an artist through each of my current projects, and my choice to choose to graduate Berkley College of Music. She would be excited and cheering me on with every step of my journey.
Celeb Secrets: Who are your top 3 most-played artists or songs on your playlist right now?
Lexxi Saal: When I’m chilling, Dua Lipa. When I’m at the gym, Drake. And car ride playlists consist of Julia Michaels, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, and Macklemore.
Celeb Secrets: For Celeb Secrets, would you be able to spill a fun secret about yourself, perhaps something tied to creating “Break a Bottle”?
Lexxi Saal: I could not wait for my 21st birthday in March so I could release this song so “Cheers To Us Lets Break A Bottle!”
