Viral pop singer Logan Alexandra is back with her latest single “Obsessed With You” and we’re not lying when we say it’s her better release again.
The Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter has been making waves on the internet since her 2019 debut, and she’s about to go viral again thanks to her new track. “Obsessed With You” is one of Logan’s strongest releases to date, featuring his soulful vocals over a modern pop sound that showcases Logan’s signature tone.
“[‘Obsessed With You’] is fun, danceable and quirky. It’s a sonic re-imagining of how I feel when I think of my partner,” Logan told Celeb Secrets in an exclusive interview.
“My then-boyfriend, who is now my fiancé, inspired these lyrics. My fiancé and I have been together for six years and I am constantly amazed that after all this time we are still obsessed with each other. other. So ‘Obsessed With You’ was written and ready to take on the world. I hope listeners will relate to this song in different ways. For some, it may not be a partner they’re obsessed with, so they interpret the song in a different way.
For the music video, which is also out now, Alexandra brings a darker element to the song that will take you into a world of mystery that will make you feel like you’re in your own mini thriller. If you ask us, this is one of her most compelling visuals she’s ever released.
“I wanted to take the idea of being ‘obsessed’ and turn it into a more creepy undertone,” she says of the concept for the video. “We were inspired by ‘Get Out’ and ‘Wanda Vision…'”
“Music videos bring a song to life, and in this case, they give the song a whole new meaning.”
The talented artist is no stranger to going viral as her music and mash-ups have racked up millions of views on TikTok and YouTube. She even teamed up with Piper Rockelle, who appeared in some of Logan’s videos.

Celebrity Secrets: Hey Logan! Congratulations on “Obsessed With You”. We love this song and you sound great. What was the inspiration behind it? What do you hope listeners take away?
Logan Alexandra: “I wrote this song in April 2020. I had just finished listening to Dua Lipa’s ‘Future Nostalgia’ album and I was so inspired. I sat down at my piano and started writing “Obsessed With You” and within an hour the song was done. It started with the bass line, then the chords, and the melody came out of me like the song was already written. Finally came the lyrics My then-boyfriend who is now my fiancé inspired these lyrics. My fiancé and I have been together for six years and I am constantly amazed that after all this time we are still obsessed with each other. other. So Obsessed With You was written and ready to take on the world. I hope listeners will relate to this song in different ways. For some, it might not be a partner they’re obsessed with, so they perform the song in a different way. This song is fun, danceable and quirky and is a re-imagining sound ation of how I feel when I think of my partner. I want my listeners to feel that and relate to that emotion in their own way.
CS: You posted on Instagram that it’s the best song you’ve ever written. Did you know while writing it that it would be so special? How has your writing process evolved over the years?
THE“I knew immediately after finishing this song that it was special. That feeling was confirmed when everyone I showed it to said ‘this is your best song yet.’ wrote this song on my own and i was so sure of it that when it came time to show the song to others i was afraid of being rejected i knew this song was special but if they don’t like it no, my opinion can change. I stopped those fears and thoughts and showed almost everyone I know. It’s different for me. I usually like to keep my songs private until they’re released, but the more people who listened with positive comments, the more I was assured that this song was something special.
CS: If you could write a song for another artist, who would it be? Which artist would you like to write with for your own project?
THE: “I would love to write for Selena Gomez. A lot of her songs are original and unique, probably because she has one of my favorite songwriters on her team. Julia Michaels. Working with them would be a dream. For my own projects, I would love to collaborate with Taylor Swift. She is a huge inspiration to me and the reason why I started writing my own music. Working with her or even meeting her would be a looping moment for me. .
CS: Of course, we have to talk about this clip! This is our favorite video you posted. How involved were you in the creation and where did you draw inspiration from?
THE: “I’m so glad this clip is your favorite! I wanted to take the idea of being ‘obsessed’ and turn it into a scarier shade. My original idea was: there’s a guy I’m around town spying with binoculars, hiding behind a newspaper, and I set up a whole commission of inquiry, trying to figure out how to make him mine, I ended up brewing a potion to make him fall in love with me , and it works, but the love is short-lived as the video ends with a new obsession. I pitched this idea to the director, Josh Belveal, and with a few tweaks to the script, he created what is now the video “Obsessed With You”. It was inspired by the movie “Get Out” and “Wanda Vision”. A sitcom feeling mixed with horror. I loved the idea and we ran with it. The creation of music videos is one of my favorite parts of making music. I like to be as involved as possible, but e n the same time, I’ve been working with the same team for years now and I trust them with everything. Music videos bring a song to life and, in this case, give the song a whole new meaning.
CS: Lastly, since we’re Celeb Secrets, can you share any secret fun moments from the music video shoot?
THE“For the outdoor picnic scene in the music video, the set designer texted me asking if I had a cricket set she could use. Somehow, I read ‘cricket’ as ‘crochet’ and brought yarn, knitting needles and anything to do with ‘crochet’ I showed up confidently with a bag of crochet stuff and I realized that I misunderstood the text and that she needed ‘cricket’ the game and not ‘hook!’ We laughed about it for a long time. Always read your texts carefully!”
