In a work slump right now? Welcome to #PlayTime, Grazia Daily's new music feature bringing you a different hot track every day of the week. From just-dropped music premieres to cool covers and throwback classics, its the new soundtrack to your afternoon.

Alexa Goddard is Hampshire born lass with an LA vibe, she also happens to be one of Roc Nation's latest signings. Alexa's just released the music video for debut single 'Marilyn' which shows her hanging out in the sunshine in frou-frou skirts and high-heeled converse. You can watch it here...
We asked Alexa to pick the soundtrack to her life… 

1. Song you always dance to and why

Whitney Houston - 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'. I just can't help it! It reminds me of being young and watching my Mum dance to it. Whenever this one comes on at a party or a wedding, I'm the first one on the floor! 

2. Song you get ready to and why

'Wannabe' by the Spice Girls. Growing up, I loved the Spice Girls… and when I'm getting my glam on, I love to listen to their music and pretend that I am one of them! For me 'Wannabe' is one that really gets me in the mood to party!

3. Song that you work out to...

'Paris' by Jay Z and Kanye West. I listen to this one on the treadmill. It gives me fire in my belly! I feel like I could run for days listening to this song. I just love the energy it has and the infectious synth sound in it and the way it builds, then breaks down. It's incredibly energetic and makes me feel energetic too!

4. Festival anthem...

'Hey Ya' by Outkast. I was lucky enough to open the main stage at Wireless Festival this year. After I'd performed, I stayed to watch all of the other acts and Outkast were one of the headliners – I've always loved this song, but to see them performing it live in London on a stage that I'd performed on a few hours earlier was mind-blowing! 

5. Song you hate...

'Axel F' by Crazy Frog because it's unbelievably irritating!

6. First song you fell in love...

En Vogue - 'Don't Let Go'. This was one of the first songs that I remember hearing and thinking 'I want to be a singer'. I absolutely loved it. When I was 8 years old, I'd perform it front of my mirror, with my TV remote as a microphone. The guitars riff gives me shivers - I still love it as much now as I did then and I've even got 'Don't Let Go' tattooed on my arm.

7.  Song that always makes you happy…

India Arie - 'A Beautiful Day'. This is such an uplifting song with a positive message. Whenever I'm feeling down, I put this song on and instantly it lifts me and makes me feel better. 

8.  Song you fall asleep to…

'Ave Maria' by Beyonce. The melody of the song is like a lullaby and Beyonce's vocals are so soft and relaxing. Although to be honest, I rarely listen to music at night – I'll usually fall asleep with the TV on!

9. Song you put on to impress people..

'Thug Passion' by 2Pac. People don't expect me to like gangsta rap– but I'd put this on to impress people because I know all of the words – I love Tupac!

10. Song that defines you...

Bobby McFerrin - 'Don't Worry, Be Happy'. Because it's fun, memorable, happy and makes you feel good!
