Alesha Dixon is back. The former Misteeq singer, whose last album ‘The Alesha Show’ was a major success, returns to the scene with fiery new single ‘Drummer Boy’ – the lead effort from her new LP ‘Unleashed’.
The track literally just premièred on BBC Radio 1. Take a listen below…
While everything from the song’s title to the production had the makings of a bonafide hit, this simply isn’t one.
As is often the case with Alesha, everything kinda comes across distinctly bargain-bin. Indeed, where the production needed to be pulsating, punchy, and potent, it noticeably lacked and was rather limp. Similarly, Dixon’s talk-singing vocals packed next-to-none of the sass nor ferociousness needed to sell a song of this nature. Disappointing.
