Now that Leona Lewis has been certified a superstar, it is time for another “X-Factor” champ to shine! Alexandra Burke is the latest champ from Britian’s hit talent competition series, “The X-Factor,” and will be dropping a single very soon. Alexandra won her way into the hearts of Simon Cowell and hundreds of fans when she entered the competition and only gained more as time went on. During the finals of the show, she performed “Listen,” the hit song from Dreamgirls, with her favorite artist, Beyonce. Throughout the show, she made it known that Beyonce was one of her heroes and when the two singers met, Beyonce took a liking to her and offered her tips and coaching.
After winning the show, Alex headed to the U.S. to start on her debut album. She met and worked with the likes of Phantom Boyz, Akon, Pharrell, Red One, Stargate, and even Beyonce and hubby Jay-Z. The power couple met up with Alex many times to offer her help on her debut album. Beyonce even offered Alex a chance to open for her during her “I Am…” tour but due to scheduling conflicts, the match never happened.
Now, Alexandra is finally ready to show the world what she’s got. She recently signed a”six-figure deal” with Dolce & Gabbana and she also announced that her upcoming single will be titled “Bad Boys” and will feature rapper Flo Rida. Promotion for the singer has begun and two new very “Sasha Fierce” looking promo pictures for her new project have surfaced (see above).
Hopefully, Alexandra can see the same success as her predecessor Leona Lewis. But of course, only time will tell. We are wishing her the best of luck and will keep you updated once her single drops this Tuesday, August 25th.
