I’ve been excited about hearing new Alexandra Burke music since after I heard her rendition of “Hallelujah.” Wow. It has been well worth the wait, let me tell you that! I’ve only even heard a clip of the song and I’m already salivating at the thought of the full length release, music video, album/single artwork…this girl has super star potential written all over.
“Bad Boys” (out October 9th) will be the lead single off of Alexandra Burke’s debut album, due out October 26 in the UK. The single, featuring an appearance by Flo-Rida was produced by The Phantom Boyz has a little bit of everything…electro-pop, R&B, hip hop…I can’t wait for this one! Popjustice really loves the track, calling it “phenomenal,” and comparing it with Britney Spears’ “Womanizer.” I totally see the comparison, and I think it’s a good thing, personally.
I predict big things for the X-Factor winner. She could very well have released another ballad as her next single – I think a club-stomper was the right route for her. Signed to Epic in the U.S., there’s no word on what her first U.S. single will be or when we can expect it. Working with Burke on her debut album we have Stargate, The Freemasons, Andrea Martin, Pharrell Williams, Akon, Steve Mac among others. Sounds hot hot hot!
