Teen Music Insider has the inside scoop. British singer-songwriter Alexander James Rodriguez has released a blue-sky and fun-packed California anthem.

The new pop song is set to dominate the summertime airwaves. The Venice Beach sun-drenched track was written by the teen based on his own experiences since spending time in Los Angeles, and it’s hot!

“Lyrically ‘California’ is all about my favorite things to do in Los Angeles, and the State of California. I have fully embraced all things Cali from my favorite footwear Vans and skateboarding to surfing on Sundays,” said Rodriguez. “I love to get outside and explore and have been so lucky to experience the drive from Venice Beach to San Francisco, with the breathtaking views of the Big Sur and the salty air on the ferry to Alcatraz. I wanted this song to be a celebration of all things Cali. From star-spotting along the Hollywood Walk of Fame to its amazing outdoor experiences.”

The music video for California was filmed in Venice Beach, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Boulevard, and the Hollywood Sign. The teen also selected some of his favorite California tourist spots to incorporate including Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Big Sur, and other noticeable landmarks.
