Her album, Overcome, which is being released on October 19th, is one that I am counting down days for. In fact, I’ve been waiting for the album since she won X-Factor a year ago.
“Overcome” is going to be one of the biggest selling albums in the UK. There are so many great people that are involved in the writing and production, including: Pharell Williams, Akon, Taio Cruz, The Freemasons, Ne-Yo, Madcon, Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic. As previously mentioned, Alexandra Burke is a huge fan of Beyonce and they did a duet on the X-Factor finale, well, it turns out the Beyonce is also a fan and wanted to do a duet, but didn’t happen due to scheduling conflicts. Yup, Alexandra is that amazing!
Alexandra Burke signed a 5 album record deal in the US. Her debut album was initially set to be released in May, but Alexandra and the record company decided to wait and take more time to create a great album of quality instead of a mediocre and rushed album. Alexandra’s debut album will be released in the US in 2010. She also has a deal to model clothes from Dolce & Gabbana. She is going to be big. MASSIVE! And she deserves it!
The album, “Overcome” will no doubt be massive. The lead single, “Bad Boys” is Pop/RnB at its best. It is already a hit on the radio and will make a big impact on the charts when it is released as a single on the 12th of October. I am hooked on this song; I have not been able to get it out of my head, seriously. It has been on repeat for the last few days.
I love the beat; it makes me want to be on a dance floor, or alone in my car singing and dancing to my own delight. We know Alexandra can sing covers, but with this song, she proves that she can sing a hit of her own. I’m not too keen on Flo Rida, but Alexandra makes his “rap” tolerable.
