Alexandra To Work With Akon, Pharrell
When X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke signed a $3 Million US deal with Epic last month, it quickly became apparent that a ‘worldwide superstar’ is what label honchos are anticipating the 20 year old become. Therefore it comes as little surprise that some of the US biggest hitmakers have been drafted in for Burke’s debut LP (due November), in the form of Akon and Pharrell Williams:

Akon, super producer and international rapper has signed up to help produce Alexandra Burke’s debut album.

Only yesterday it was reported that Miss Burke would also be working alongside none other than N*E*R*D and The Neptunes front man Pharrell Williams.

Akon has already worked with Leona Lewis and told tabloid newspaper The Daily Star: “I’ve had calls to work with Alex and I’m going to do it. I love the X Factor and I love helping to break new artists.”

The newspaper claims that Alexandra is over the moon about working with Skateboard P “She can’t believe her luck. She’s a massive fan and thinks Pharrell will help her distance herself from Leona (Lewis) comparisons.”

With Pharrell onboard as well, the record label are basically making sure that Burke’s debut album is an international hit. {Source}

I’m definitely anticipating Alexandra’s debut. Her all-rounder nature has me genuinely excited as to what she and the enlisted producers will come up with.
