Alexandra Burke feeling daring
Alexandra Burke has exclusively told us that her next album will be 'more daring' than her debut.
The 'Start Without You' star spoke to us at last night's Dolce & Gabbana 'Dress Me Up' party in central London, where fashion bloggers and celebrities were give the chance to style the store's main window.
The former X Factor winner told us "I'm literally living in the studio right now and I hope to finish recording in the next two months. The album will definitely be more daring, with a different sound - it's dangerous, a little bit saucy and I'm taking my sound to a whole new level. Hopefully my fans will love it and if they don't, then I will just continue to make music that hopefully they all love."
Alexandra also revealed that she's planning some special collaborations for the new album "but they're all very much secret right now. I have a couple of people in mind and some very exciting high profile people, so watch this space is all I can say. But there will be a new single this Summer, yes. "
In fact the whole project is so secretive, Alexandra hasn't even played Simon Cowell all of the new material. She told us " I've been keeping some songs away from Simon and my label only because I want to surprise them all and hopefully he'll like what he hears."
And what about those X Factor rumours on both the UK and USA show? " I know a couple of things and it's all very exciting, that's all I can say and the truth won't be hidden for long, trust me."
And just before we let Alexandra enjoy the D&G party she also confirmed that she does indeed want to meet hip-hop star 50 Cent, after she tweeted about him on Thursday. " Ha! I just need to meet that man, I absolutely adore him. If I could marry that man I would, I think he's just amazing. Can you help me meet him?!"
So Mrs Curtis Jackson maybe...watch this space for more!
