Introducing New Pop Face: Alesha Dixon

Not exactly new. She's the hottest chick in the now-defunct Mis-Teeq. She was that hot dancer in an N.E.R.D. music video 'She Likes To Move'. She isn't very well-known in the US as she is in the UK. And now she's ready to fly solo. Her upcoming debut album, entitled 'Fired Up','s got a handful of slick pop producers on the list, including Richard X and Xenomania. Any album that's got a track or two produced by those two will get my attention. Her first single 'Lipstick' was leaked this week, and in my opinion, it's a delicious slice of icy frosty pop. I expected something like urban r&b/ hip-hop, but the song turned out to be a danceable pop-rock club banger, with a killer riff. Some portions of the song are a little weak, but the hooks are quite addictive. It's got an energy and vibe that reminds me of Nelly Furtado's 'Maneater'.
So I'm looking forward to this album. She may not have a very long career, but so far so good. The British sure knows how to make good pop.
