Alexandra Burke To 'Overcome' On Debut LP
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke has revealed that her debut album will be titled ‘Overcome’. Now set for release on October 19th, the singer will now avoid a chart-showdown with mentor Cheryl Cole’s debut solo LP, which hits stores October 26th – the same day Alex was to release hers. {Source}
And the award for worst ‘I won a reality TV talent show’ album title goes to….(!) With Alex herself confirming in the very same interview that the album will feature just 3 ballads, I’m struggling to understand the logic of the record being named after a such a cliche ballad (which ‘surfaced’ months ago). This especially with all signs pointing to the LP being an uptempo, danceable affair (see: ‘Bad Boys’). But really, where is the correlation? Here’s hoping, silly title aside, the album actually delivers. Despite numerous plays I’m still on the fence as to my take on ‘Bad Boys’ – it’s either marginally passable, and at best a grower, or completely awful. Anyway…
Your thoughts?

    What in the world is her management thinking? She just stepped in the game, she doesn't have a story yet. Like michelle had sort of a cheesy name as well (unexpected) but it really was unexpected what she came with!

    With this name it looks like she's making a comeback … and for the love of Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel (LOL) they could have at least named it ''i overcame'' or something like the overcome doesn't even sound right.

    I wish her the best of luck nonetheless…
