Léa Cristina Lexa Araújo da Fonseca[1] (born February 22, 1995), better known by her stage name Lexa, is a Brazilian singer, songwriter and dancer. In September 2015, Lexa released her debut studio album, titled Disponível. Five singles were released from this album.

Biography[edit]

Léa Cristina Araujo da Fonseca, known professionally as Lexa, was born in the city of Rio de Janeiro on February 22, 1995 to music producer Darlin Ferrattry. The stage name "Lexa" was created by adding an 'x' to her birth-name, Léa as a tribute to Brazilian presenter Xuxa Meneghel.[2]

Career[edit]

2014–present: Disponível[edit]

Lexa's first single, Posso Ser, was released in December 2014. The song was featured on Brazil Hot 100 Airplay Top 30 singles. The extended play (EP) contains three new tracks in addition to the 2014 single. The same EP was re-released in April 2015 and also included the bonus track "Delete". Later that year Lexa launched a second song,"Parra de Marra" whose music video was released the following month.

Disponível, Lexa's debut album, launched on September 18, 2015 under the Som Livre label. The album consists of thirteen tracks and includes compositions from Naldo Benny, Umberto Tavares, Batutinha and the artist herself. The title track, "Disponível"[3] was released the same month as the first single. On December 12, 2015, Lexa began the Disponível Tour with a debut show in Rio de Janeiro.

Management[edit]

Lexa formerly partnered with Kamilla Fialho, of K2l, in launching her career. The partnership ended, with Lexa choosing to leave the company. A suit was later filed by Fialho concerning the right to use the name "Lexa" after Araújo's departure.[4] The dispute was settled out of court, with both parties reported as satisfied with the outcome. Lexa was reported in May, 2016, as having joined the Mallupy Entertainment group, owned by Netto Maluppy and Thiago Basso.[2]

Personal life[edit]

Lexa has been dating rapper MC Guimê since December 2015.[5] They became engaged in 2017.
