Alexandra Burke is wasting no time drumming up buzz for her forthcoming album. Case, point, these new promotional snaps, which are dripping all sorts of diva.
The 24-year-old X Factor winner recently told That Grape Juice that she’s channelling a more soulful sound this go round, one she likens to “Whitney Houston-meets-Coldplay”. To bring her vision to life, the powerhouse vocalist has paired up with American mega-manger Kevin Liles and producers such as Rico Love as well as the maestro’s behind Drake’s material.
Needless to say, we can’t wait to see what Ms. Burke is cooking up — especially as it’ll dub as her US debut.
For now, though, peep more pics below…

Alexandra Burke is evolving.
After racking up multi-Platinum success with hits such as ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Bad Boys’, the London-bred beauty is embracing a more soulful sound on her hotly anticipated third studio album.
Fresh from rocking the stage at her US debut, we caught up with the singer who waxed all sorts of candid about a number of topics. Ever keen to the ask the questions you really want answers to, we quizzed Burke on breaking America, signing a management deal with Kevin Liles, and what this means for her eagerly awaited American “launch”. A wholly frank Alex also set the record straight on why she recently left her record label.
Confident, assertive, yet the same “Alexandra” the masses fell in love with, the 24-year-old not only knows the artist she wants to be, she’s grabbed the wheel and is steering herself there.
An insightful read awaits after the jump…

And it begins!
Alexandra Burke makes her eagerly awaited American debut tonight in New York City.
The Platinum-selling stage blazer will join Mary J Blige, Erykah Badu, Mary Mary, and Patti LaBelle at a commemorative concert, christened the Apollo Spring Gala, to honor Chaka Khan‘s 40-years in the music industry.
A perfectionist of a performer, Burke has called on Beyonce’s right-hand man Jaquel Knight to help piece together what we’re hearing will be a must-see showing.
It goes without saying that the high-profile slot is the best of launches for the 24-year-old who is -as many had hoped – embracing a more soulful sound for her 3rd studio album (which will dub as her US debut). The X Factor graduate recently relocated to the States after signing a mega-management deal with industry force Kevin Liles - the former Def Jam executive who propelled the careers of Jay-Z and Kanye West into the stratosphere. More recent years have seen Liles mould Trey Songz into the Urban force he is today. Needless to say, it seems he and his team are working their magic with our girl.
