New Song: Fleur East – ‘Sax’

image

Fleur East‘s much anticipated debut single, ‘Sax’ has hit the digital retailers on Friday and how is it? Find out after the jump.

YES! YES! and YES! Fleur has done it. The song is fresh, funky, huge and definitely dance floor ready. The anthem is laced with heavy synths and the incredible saxophone breakdown on the chorus. The lyrics are brilliant and the metaphor used makes the song ridiculously amazing.

The song sees the X Factor runner-up rap during the verses until the song builds up into a massive pre-chorus. The transition is just crazy. The brassy chorus just takes it to a whole new level. It is catchy and  it stucks in your mind. Although you can tell it is a sister to Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars’ smash hit, ‘Uptown Funk‘, but ‘Sax’ absolutely holds its own. This is one of the best debut singles ever to emerge from any X Factor alumni.

Currently, the song shot straight to top 5 on the UK iTunes Chart and she is set to perform it on the X Factor stage tonight. Hopefully, the performance will help the song generate sales even more. SMASH!!!

‘Sax’ is taken from Fleur East’s debut album, ‘Love, Sax and Flashbacks‘ set for release on the 4th December.

You can purchase your copy of ‘Sax‘ on iTunes or stream it on Spotify.

Fleur East Readies Debut Single

Sax

Finally. It is almost here. Fleur East has officially announced the title of her debut single, “Sax“. This comes after she was a runner-up to Ben Haenow on last year’s season of The X Factor UK.

The pop stunner will release the single under Syco Music, which is part of the Sony. The song has been produced by Electric (responsible for Little Mix recent smash,Black Magic”) and it will hit digital retailers on the 23 October.

When she was a contestant on the X Factor, the sassy singer performed Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ “Uptown Funk” and her performance rocked up to #1 on UK iTunes, making her the first contestant in history of the show to achieve such feat.

Normally, X Factor alums deliver with their debut singles and eventually smashing up the charts. I hope Fleur will enjoy the same fate as her X Factor predecessors. I personally think she will smash.

You can pre-order the single here.

Sax” serves as the first single taken off Fleur East‘s yet-to-be-titled debut album. In case you missed it, watch her “Uptown Funk” performance after the jump.

The Leona Lewis era is about to launch as details about her new effort have been revealed. The new Island Records artist is set to release her first album under her new label. The album cover surfaced and she looks stunning and you can tell she is in a better space now.

The LP is titled, ‘I AM’ and it will be preceded by the single, ‘Fire (Under My Feet)’.  The latter will hit digital stores on the 21st June. Leona held an intimate performance session in the UK where she belted five of her new songs and she got amazing reviews from Media. I must say, I am excited for this new project. It looks like Leona is not playing around. Let us see if the new label will bring Leona’s best to the world.

Is Rihanna’s #R8 Era Shaping Up To Be Good or Bad?

Ice

In January, the world witnessed the pop Princess officially launching her long-awaited 8th era. The latter was lead by the single ‘Four Five Seconds’ featuring rapper, Kanye West and Paul McCartney and knowing Rihanna’s past lead single catalog, this is very disappointing. At first, I thought the song is a grower, but it just doesn’t do it. I do admit that it charted well, but Rihanna’s leads smash charts left, right and centre. Unfortunately, this did not measure up to its predecessors.

The Umbrella-singer moved on and launched her second single, ‘B*tch Better Have My Money’ which I think its worse than the lead. It did smash the iTunes chart, ranking #1 in the US within minutes upon its release. But its no surprise because Rih can sell the hell out a single.

I am not sure which direction she is trying to take, but I am worried. I get that her recent singles are not ‘commercial’ but neither was ‘Rated R‘ but it had the most amazing songs ever to be recorded in her career. I hope she has amazing songs to release because these aren’t cutting the cookie. Check the songs out after the jump.
