New Song: Keisha Buchanan – ‘Gimmie Pressure’

Published: Thursday 24th Feb 2011 by Sam

Keisha Buchanan bites back on new promotional release ‘Gimmie Pressure’. The hard-hitting buzz single sees the ousted Sugababe singer make no secret about who she’s taking aim at (see: Amelle, Heidi, Jade).

Indeed lyrics include lines such as “you taking shots on my name, I’ll put it on ya”, and “you try to label me, I’m not gonna wear it. I’m the original, not no generic”.

Meow! Take a listen a listen after the jump…

Via PB:

Wow! Most certainly a compelling listen; one which re-ignites the buzz for Keisha’s long awaited solo debut on Island/Universal Music. For lyrically, ‘Pressure’ sees Buchanan’s underrated songwriting ability paired with a rousing, (at times) Dub-Step inspired beat – which in an era of uptempo songs saying not much of anything, makes this a winner and then some. Great track.

    So beyond weak.. Girl Jade Ewen alone can slay every chick in the damn group. Past and present..

    I like Keisha though, the song is just a little bold for that voice :-/

  6. bips February 24, 2011

    @justin all i have to say that if jade was all that, why did she felt the need as a solo artist to make part of a bandgirl ???? i’m askin cause i’m curious and i don’t get it!!!!

  11. Teflon Boy February 24, 2011

    Lol this is not Dubstep in any way, shape or form! and while we’re on the subject can everyone and their mama stop jumpin on the damn dub bandwagon.

    As for the song, if it wasn’t for the lyrics and their topical appeal it would be forgettable but kudos to Keisha for creating some drama for herself.

    Her pen is quite underrated but this is really good. DUBSTEP wasn’t apparent until the very end but that’s not enough to call this a dubstep track. Anyways… Way to go Keisha!

  13. MissKellyHUNNI February 24, 2011


    wait who is this again?!

    she is not KAY-UTE!

  14. RONALDMATTERS.COM February 24, 2011

    GREAT SONG!! Well-written and sang. BUUUUUUT this sounds like a demo to me…like she’s gonna actually come back and sing FOR REAL once they decide if this track is gonna make the album.

    She’s not singing hard enough to the beat, for me, in my opinion.

  15. let me breath February 24, 2011

    This is something ciara should of came with, she would of gave it more attitude, netherless keisha s done a brilliant job go girl!!!!

  16. DION-ISH February 24, 2011

    That is NOT Dubstep ….maybe a WEAK ass attempt, but NO Some people need to stay in there lanes!

    Sooo TIRED at everybody trying to hop on a trend, When it works for certain artist, it works…..not meant for others to try and mimic and denounce the genre

  17. sugababes February 24, 2011

    This song is great exactly heidi will regret this…. Keisha is the original and all the sugababes fans will folloew keisha. The new line up need to change their name.

  18. damnnnnnnnn February 24, 2011

    I really love it. It is about time we got someone with singing ability.

    9ice1! str8 BLOW!!!! WELCOME,! SHE JUST TURNED sugababes to bitterbabes

  22. Fatima February 24, 2011

    LOL, not dubstep. Keep digging your heels in with stupidity.

    Keisha’s Twitter said this was written two years ago when she was still in an angry place, and that she’s very upset about it being released. She said it will NOT be on the album. That said, I still like it.

  23. Kweli69j February 24, 2011

    love it bring on the album!

  24. Dev February 25, 2011

    Yawn…… is that the time already?

  25. Who’s Cedric? February 25, 2011

    This is not dubstep at all. But the beat goes hard, tune is not too bad at all! Keisha coming hard.

  26. Waddie G. February 26, 2011

    I like it, but it sounds dated…like 10 years ago.

  27. true February 26, 2011

    The song is good & catchy but it sounds like its not finished, I could hear tinie tempah on this I think it would blow because it’s got a passout /rihanna vibe to it.

  28. T February 26, 2011

    Why hating?
    sugababes werent that famous cause america got a weird taste of music kesha can have a number one hit but adele cant no adele is just getting in the charts while shes having allotta hits in the rest of the world they made hits just not in the usa

  29. Mary February 26, 2011

    it’s all over the place.

  30. Matty July 18, 2011

    SEE THIS IS GREAT! the original babes all had crazy different styles, listen to all their solo stuff, which made the orignal line up the best!! Generic is right Keisha! blow it up!!!
