Alison Gold (born May 9, 2002) is an American pop singer. She is best known for the single "Chinese Food".
Alison Gold was born in Fairfax, Virginia. In 2012, she began working with Patrice Wilson, with whom she has worked on all her songs to date. Her first single, "Skip Rope", was released as part of the musical duo Tweenchronic made up of Alison and another girl identified as "Stacey". Her first single as a solo artist, "Chinese Food", was written by Wilson; Gold stated that she "loved it right away" after Wilson demoed it for her, and recorded it soon after. Wilson raps on the chorus in an accent. The song became a viral hit, charting at number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 in November 2013 and reaching 14 million YouTube views by March 2014. The video for "Chinese Food" included images of Wilson dancing in a panda costume and dancers flanking Gold in (Japanese) geisha outfits. The song was criticized as having simplistic portrayals of other cultures. The Chicago Reader thought it remarkable that the song's "having bugged millions of people in an interestingly annoying way has earned [it] a spot, however small, in pop's history books." Patrice Wilson eventually removed the video from his channel in 2018, although it was later re-uploaded by others on YouTube.
She later went on to do another single with Patrice titled "ABCDEFG", which did not chart (this was also removed in 2018 by Patrice). The music video for her third and final single "Shush Up" portrayed Gold in a sexualized manner, depicting her as a criminal in jail, and at one point had her being executed in an electric chair. The official copy of the video was later removed from YouTube, and Gold has not released any new music since.
