As Alexandra Burke continues to ready her debut LP ‘Overcome’ for its US debut, a re-worked track from the recording sessions has surfaced in the form of ‘All Night Long’. Originally featured on the UK version of the Platinum album, the breezy up-tempo – which was written and produced by Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Sam Watters, and Louis Biancaniello – now features rapper Pitbull, and boasts tweaked vocals from Burke herself.
For those who enjoyed Chris Brown’s ‘Forever’, this will likely be considered a winner. Indeed, its catchy hook and fusion of Pop, Urban, and Dance should ensure its mass appeal, as well as radio success should it receive the single treatment.
That said, I’m still waiting to hear that ‘mind-blowing’ track I just know Ms. Burke has in her to deliver. ‘The Silence’ and ‘Nothing But The Girl’ aside, her material thus far has left much to be desired; with her saving grace being her undeniable vocal prowess and live performances. One can only hope the US version of ‘Overcome’ serves up the hotness…
