This is gonna be a mess.
Sound's like some ratchet ghetto mess.
(I can't wait.)
I can't wait for this I love Tulisa.. She has amazing talent, been looking forward to this album all year!! Don't care what some of you take the piss out of her...watch this be successful more than some of your faves.. Nicola Roberts, check. Nadina, check. Little Boots, check. Robyn, check. Amelle etc etc.
I love that Diane Warren would help write a song called 'Bitch on Heels'.
I also love that Diane Warren, who's worked with the true legends in this game, would suddenly find herself working with Tulisa.
I really like Tulisa, but everything she's released as a solo artist has been complete crap. I have hope there will be at least one or two good songs on this album, though...
I like her too. And I was more than ready to stan for some proper urban R&B from her (or at least some better N-Dubz quality tracks). Because Uncle B was (and still is) a brilliant album. Yet she seems to be chasing her success rather than creating it.
She's on the biggest platform in the country and she's hiding behind a big dance track (which was great nonetheless) and some mediocre attempt at going "urban". Come on Tulisa, if anyone can spearhead some sort of UK urban success it's going to be you!
And yet her next single is going to be a big "Christmas-y ballad". Joy.
I didn't know Tulisa was the new Sweetheart...
Oh now come on. Even if you thought 'Young' was good, surely you should still recognise that it's just as rip-roaringly cheap and tacky as the rest of her campaign? Budget Calvin Harris.
That said I look forward to this album and hope it's just as much of a hot mess as it's currently shaping up to be.
I don't like her gangster popstar image. Young was good for about six days and then it got exceptionally tiring. I'll most likely look into the album but unless she does something super amazing, I most likely won't buy it... The cover is nice though.
But the song itself is not as rip-roaringly cheap and tacky as the rest of the campaign?
'Young' is amazing. Her rough vocals fit perfectly with the song theme and the breakdown has more of an organic, carefree quality than any robotic Calvin breakdown of the past year. It's no doubt come about as a result of the """"Calvin trend"""" but, whether intentional or not, it comes across as far more than a cheap knock-off of the sound.
I will however admit that the robotic "We are young" which opens and closes the song are perhaps the cheapest three seconds of sound I've heard all year.
I guess we just inherently disagree on this but I personally found 'Young' to the be the definition of cheap and tacky. Enjoyable, maybe, but the single most obvious grab for success she could possibly have made was to make a Calvin banger and that's exactly what she did, except she couldn't afford Calvin so she got some bargain basement producer in place of him.
Young is too much like those odd Eurotrash music videos found in cheap gay bars or dancing arcade machines where the singer - also oddly having just some obscure European first name as her artist name or it's some DJ - looks a little too much like some kind of porn star.
Not this Inna shade.
...but it's true?
I guess it's one of the perils of being on AATW. The home of Two Shoes, Flip & Fill and Blackout Crew. It certainly did Dannii no favours being with them either.
I just don't get the whole thing, she's on one of the biggest shows on TV, actually 'won' last year as well, yet doesn't seem capable of capitalising on it.
I do imagine that they thought the Cheryl formula would transfer onto her, the big difference is Girls Aloud and Cheryl already had a sizeable public profile before the show, X-Factor just amplified things. With Nicole coming across exceptionally well last night, I do worry she may steal a lot of thunder from Tulisa, especially if Nicole comes up with a decent track and obligatory performance.
She had a number one record earlier this year - yes, Live It Up might not have done that well in comparison, but not even Tulisa seemed to hope for a top five. Also, N-Dubz only ever had three top ten hits (five including their collaborations), despite two Platinum albums and a Gold one.
