Not only has the alternative/pop singer been both successful and busy with her performance schedule, but Martinez has also recently released the music video for her her catchy tune “Alphabet Boy,” which amassed over 1 million views in the first eight ours of its release. In the slightly disturbing but artistic video, the “Pity Party” singer continues with the dark, childhood themes of some of her other videos. Martinez begins singing the beginning sounds of the alphabet as soon as the pacifier is pulled from her mouth. From this opening scene, the childlike Martinez plays goes a little crazy, squirting a water gun at the camera, ripping and eating pages from a dictionary, waving and licking a large knife, and dancing on top of a miniature refrigerator.

“Alphabet Boy” is one of 13 tracks from Martinez’s debut studio album Cry Baby, which was released in August 2015 and includes hits “Pity Party,” “Dollhouse,” and “Mrs. Potato Head.”
