As X Factor “moments” go, few can rival Fleur East’s breakout performance of ‘Uptown Funk.’ Smartly, then, she has cooked up her own take on the sound with the deliciously addictive ’Sax.’
Big, booming, and busy, the Electric cut (which was co-written by East) features funkified production and ample swagger to match.
Touted as a huge break-out hit, set off the explosive track after the jump…
Heavy on the metaphors, the track showcases a flirty Fleur in fine form as she throws down the gauntlet to a potential bae. The seismic saxophone rift is rich and sounds much fuller and more robust than those featured on some of this Summer’s big hits. A subtle, but positively impactful point of difference.
The pre-chorus sees the singer chant “baby, baby I’ve been waiting for someone to blow my mind”…and blow our minds she does.
A certified smash!
