Seven years after the birth of last album ‘Walk With Me’, reports of a new LP from Jamelia both confuse and excite fans who remain in the dark as to why it’s arrival has taken/is taking so long.
So, perhaps in an effort to remind the world of the voice that took 2003’s ‘Thankyou’ to Double Platinum status in the UK, the ‘No More‘ singer teased fans with a mini cover of the Frank Ocean classic, ‘Thinking About You’.
Get all the way into these pics of Ms. Alexandra Burke on her way to a leaving party thrown by and for supermodel Jourdan Dunn on Friday night.
Looking cuter than ever, Burke arrived at the party to bid Dunn adieu before she moves to New York for four months- rubbing shoulders with ‘See It In A Boy’s Eyes’ beauty Jamelia and ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ star Lauren Pope.”
Since splashing onto the scene, aged 18, with breakthrough single ‘Money’, there’s been no looking back for R&B belle Jamelia.
Easily one of the UK’s most successful Black female acts, the Birmingham-bred star has wracked-up an impressive catalogue of hits since her 2000 debut, ‘Drama’.
Indeed, each of her 3 studio albums – the last of which was released in 2007 – have spurned singles that are etched in Britain’s Urban history book.
Hailed by many as the UK’s answer to Beyonce (if not for her talent, then the length and breadth of her success), the singer’s most notable streak was ushered in with her 2004 mainstream breakthrough ‘Thank You’. Certified double Platinum and housing her biggest hits to date, the project – in many regards – is what cemented the 31 year old as an all-round Pop force.
So, for these reasons and much more, we salute Jamelia as one the Best of British.
