Here are two exclusive outtakes from Alexandra’s photo shoot session with 4Music that was taken during her appearance on their “Chart Champions” show.
Alexandra hosted the Top 20 chart champions who have reigned supreme with their massive selling tunes. Who took home the gold prize in the countdown? Be sure to catch re-runs of the show on Freeview, 18, Sky 360, Virgin 330.
Stephanie Faleo of Chart Show TV caught up with Alexandra recently to discuss the latest single “Elephant”, more album news and Alex’s big plans to break into The USA market. There’s even talk of tour dates being released very soon.
Alexandra Burke’s single “Elephant” ft. DJ Erick Morillo has officially debuted on the UK singles charts at Number 3. The single came behind Nicki Minaj’s “Starships” and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know”.
However, the single is NUMBER 1 on the official dance charts.
We are so extremely proud of Alexandra at this moment. Everything happens for a reason and this is no exception.
AB performed the single live at Radio 1′s Chart Show with Reggie Yates as well and we’ve added the first photos from her visit. Keep checking back for the live performance (video).
Alex visited the official charts studios in London on March 15th where she spoke about her current NO.2 position in the official midweeks charts, the general sound of the new album, her biggest influences for the album and lots more.
“I’ve been out of the game for a year and a half recording [my] second album and to come back and for [Elephant] to be at Number 2 at this stage is a really big achievement,” she said. “I’m really grateful to all of those who have supported me, but most of all my amazing fans who go so hard for me, it’s unreal!”
“It’s very nerve racking, I’m very nervous full stop!,” she said. “But my mum always says to me ‘having nerves shows that you care’, so I guess I’ll worry the day that the nerves go away! Now? I want them to stay, right here in my heart.”
To find out where she ends up on the charts (hopefully that NO.1 slot) – tune in to Radio 1′s “Official Chart Show” on Sunday, March 18th at 7pm!
AB is back with Yahoo! OMG! for another week of “Chart Chat” where she sums up the weekly album and single sales. Who were this weeks biggest sellers? Who made music headlines? Make sure you read all she had to say below:
Hey everyone it’s Alex here again for another round up for this week’s Chart Chat with Yahoo omg!
So, unless you were sitting underneath a rock somewhere over the last week, then you would have noticed one of the biggest events in the music industry took place last week – The Brits 2012!
I went along and it was a truly glittering affair, and there were so many familiar faces in one room it was brilliant to see everyone having fun and enjoying what we all love most – the music.
Needless to say, these events have a huge affect on the singles and albums chart and you only have to look at how the charts have reacted this week to realise the power of the whole event!
If you look at the Top 10 albums sales this week there have been some huge jumps numbers-wise for a lot of artists who were at The Brits. Adele jumped straight back up to the No.1 spot (will anyone ever manage to take the crown from her – this woman is unstoppable!), Emeli Sande and Ed Sheeran are keeping up appearances in the Top 3, and artists such as Coldplay jumped up four places. The Florence and The Machine album ‘Ceremonials’ had a massive leap and jumped up 14 places so I bet they had a few drinks to celebrate! It makes me proud to be a UK artist when we have so much great British music flying the flag!
Adele, Ed, Coldplay and Florence all performed on the night and the performances were all great – just goes to show how much people really feed off a live performance. There’s nothing better than going to see your fave artist on a big stage and having a dance with all your girls! People totally feed off the buzz. I must admit I really enjoyed Ed’s performance – it was just really simple and him down to a T. You couldn’t move for chatter about The Brits on Twitter and Facebook that evening and my whole timeline was full of people commenting on the outfits, who looked the best, whose performance was the best and so on.
Aside from all the Brit’s contenders there haven’t been a huge amount of new entries, aside from one notable one which was Gym Class Heroes feat. Neon Hitch ‘Ass Back Home’ in at No.9. I haven’t seen or heard much about these guys for a while so this was one that caught my attention. I’ll be intrigued to see how this does over the next few weeks.
And of course save the best until last – the No.1 record this week is my FAVOURITE song at the moment; Gotye with ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’. I know I waxed lyrical about this track last week but I just can’t get enough of it! It’s so good! Hopefully it will still be up there flying the flag when next week comes!
