New Song: Alesha Dixon – ‘Drummer Boy’

Published: Friday 23rd Jul 2010 by Sam

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.

Hit or Miss?

    Can’t comment on the track as its taking like a minute to download 3 seconds of it, but don’t be mean to Alesha – she’s one of the nicest people you’re ever likely to meet in the music industry.

    The productions is pretty hot but the song itself – especially the melody – is AWFUL, which is such a shame! This could have been such a HUGE song :\ shame.

  30. Alex July 27, 2010

    This song is amazing!
    I agree with it being a grower, you deffinately need to listen to it a few times to really get a good feel of it, so dont write it off just yet! It really is a fab song!

    I heard lit last night and I didn’t care for it. Maybe it will have to grow on me, but I do like Alesha Dixon though. I’m from the states and I’m heard about four songs from her album and they were good. “Breathe Slow” is my favorite.

  32. SILLYMESS August 18, 2010

    I love the hook and the video fits in really well with the song. First time I heard it it sounded like a mess
