Everything was going so well for Pixie Lott following the success of her debut album Turn It Up which sold over 855,000 copies in the UK alone and spawned 6 singles. In 2011 she returned strong with number 1 hit All About Tonight taken from her second album Young Foolish Happy. Then things seemed to fall apart when the next two singles – What Do You Take Me For? and Kiss The Stars – just about scraped into the Top 10. Young Foolish Happy only managed Gold certification and sold a fraction of her debut.
After two years out of the limelight Pixie is back fighting with new single Nasty. If the song sounds familiar it’s because it was originally recorded by Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green for Burlesque but was never officially released due to copyright issues. After much fighting from hr legal team, Pixie has managed to get all the clearances she needs and is releasing the track as the first single from her forthcoming self-titled album.
Nasty is funky, sample-laden, uptempo pop track that shows the feistier side of Pixie’s personality. One issue is that whilst Pixie has an amazing voice, it’s not as powerful as Christina’s so anyone who is familiar with the original version may feel this one lacks somewhat. Accompanied by a raunchy video, Nasty should remind people that Pixie is a formidable popstar and she does the song justice to our ears.
Will it be a number one smash? We doubt it but it’s a decent return from the popstar who keeps threatening to be one of the biggest female artists in the UK. She’s got a fantastic voice and Nasty has made us interested in what Pixie is going to serve up next.
