It has been confirmed that next single to be lifted from Alexandra Burke‘s smash debut LP, ‘Overcome’, will be ‘The Silence’. The stirring ballad, which you can listen to below, was produced by hit-maker RedOne and is set for release March/April.

As one of the few songs that I out rightly love on Ms. Burke’s record, I’m glad it’s receiving the single treatment. Alex delivers a stunning vocal performance on this one; a performance which is sure to further solidify her status as one of most gifted acts to emerge in recent years. In any case; for those who’ve yet to hear it, check out the song below:

Hit or Miss?

    she’s got a good voice, hopefully, this will be successful.

  3. Melanie January 27, 2010

    Im confident this single is gonna be a smash!! Her live performances are even better, especially when she sang at The Paul O’Grady Show.

    Thanks goodness… i was starting to worry someone was purpously trying to sabotage her with those mediocre releases

  7. TRUTH January 27, 2010

    DAMN, HER VOICE STRAINS BADLY! SHE CANT HIT THOSE HUGE VIBRATTOS WITHOUT SCREAMING. YOU CAN TELL SHE HAD TO DO MANY TAKES ON THOSE NOTES. SORRY CANT SEE HER DOING THIS LIVE IN ONE SHOT. NEXT.

  8. ADE January 27, 2010

    that picture of her makes me laugh everytime i see it, and f****** hell her fore-arms look manly as hell!

  9. chelsie January 27, 2010

    Um, TRUTH, she has already done it LIVE and there were no takes. And nobody was ‘screaming’.

  10. Alex January 27, 2010

    Fantastic choice…this is the best song on that atrocious album of hers. All Night Long should be the 4th single

    I hate that photo, in fact I hate that whole photoshoot :-/ But I love this song, imo it’s the best on her album. Her fans have all been calling for this as the second single and I’m glad that she’s listen. Her album’s amazing, she’s amazing, what more can I say?

    Btw thanks for posting, good to see TGJ showing support for British talent!

    Her album is great fr a debut and it showcases her versatility well.I love the Silence and hope it is a worldwide hit for her.I think she felt very emotional in the studio when singing the song as it is abou her aunt. Thanks for posting some great Alex pieces-you are the best.Alex on the POG show below-brilliant.

  13. Darren January 27, 2010

    DAMN she is the ugliest girl in the entire entertainment world and has a mustache too. can’t yall find better pictures to post?

  14. Bedrock January 27, 2010

    WOW!!! VOCALS ARE CRAZY ON THIS ONE…I LOVE THIS SONG!!!

  15. Phil January 27, 2010

    Darren just because you hate what you see when you look in the mirror-try and have some class if that is at all possible.Alex is a beautiful Black women who conducts herself with grace and dignity maybe you should try it sometime.Beautiful song worldwide hit.

  16. S*** January 27, 2010

    It pretty good, It is a BIG SONG, It fits her Big Rhaspy Dark Voice But its really the Chorus thats Great. The song its self is borderline Mediocre. Some of the vocals are great though- Better than Whitney sounds now. Sounds a Bit Bland & Typical. & theres nothing really separating her from Leona… 3.9/5

    Respectively in Comparison, Russian Roulette is similar & is Better than this…

  17. Antertain January 28, 2010

    Bout bloody time…

    Now Alex can get her name out dere with a ballad..

    This had to be a single!!

    GREAT NEWS!

  18. Carlos January 28, 2010

    Why does she have hairy legs…. this sounds like a reject from the early 90’s that Mariah, Celine, Whitney, Shania, and Toni Braxton already did to death. This sound was boring then, and its boring now.

    @Truth, the Studio Version is nothing compared to How well she sounds when she’s not SICK! Or EMOTIONAL OVER SOMETHING BAD. You Need To Check Out Her Two European Smash hit Singles Bad Boys, And High Heels and then Check out her Live performances before any of you Judge. The Studio version of this song isn’t the best because it was recorded when her vocals were VerY Stressed, and that made it sound like a Hard Song TO sing. WHEN IN REALITY SHE BREEZES OVER THIS SONG! JUST WATCH THIS! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJeZSODcOLQ

    @Truth, the Studio Version is nothing compared to How well she sounds when she’s not SICK! Or EMOTIONAL OVER SOMETHING BAD. You Need To Check Out Her Two European Smash hit Singles Bad Boys, And High Heels and then Check out her Live performances before any of you Judge. The Studio version of this song isn’t the best because its widely known it was recorded when her vocals were Already Very Stressed, and that made it sound like a Hard Song TO sing. WHEN IN REALITY SHE BREEZES OVER THIS SONG WITH EASE! UNLESS YOUR WILLING TO ACTUALLY RESEARCH AND LISTEN TO HER BEST PERFORMANCES WHERE SHE ACTUALLY MURDERS THIS SONG AND SOUNDS LIKE SHE’S NOT EVEN TRYING IN DOING IT. THEN DON’T JUDGE UNTIL YOU KNOW THE “TRUTH” @TRUTH? OVER 50MILLION PEOPLE VOTED HER WINNER OF 2008 x FACTOR! HER ALBUM OVERCOME HAS JUST TOPPED THE U.K. CHARTS AND HER SINGLE HIGH HEELS IS NOW NUMBER 1 OVER THERE. SHE’S BEEN NOMINATED FOR A BRIT AWARD FOR HIGH HEELS, AND IS A STRONG CANDIDATE IN MANY EYES TO WIN BECAUSE OF HER CRISP VOCAL TALENT! I DON’T EVER CALL PEOPLE OUT ON MOST OF WHAT THEY SAY! BUT TRUST ME! YOU GUYS ARE MAKING A BIG MISTAKE IN JUDGING THIS GIRL FROM JUST THAT SONG. YOU’LL SEE! JUST WATCH THIS AND YOU’LL SEE WHAT THE BIG “DEAL IS”..

    I think it will reach no. 1 if we downloaded more because it is at no. 95 in the charts and we can buy it or download it to make it become a no. 1 single.
