Alesha Dixon Toughens Up For Second Album

Alesha Dixon is feeling feisty as the countdown starts to her second album.

With her single Radio out on 28th November and album The Entertainer out on 29th November, Alesha’s been gigging around the country wearing outfits that are Strictly Sensational. At a party in central London’s Cafe De Paris nightclub, the singer wowed in a sexy all black outfit, which had a dominatrix vibe.

After admitting to feeling upset about luke-warm reviews to her performance as a judge on Strictly Come Dancing, she’s letting out her anger in her lyrics with songs like Baddest Chick and Take Control.

And Very can reveal there is some MC-ing on the new album.

“I’m very happy about the MC-ing again,” the former Mis-Teeqsinger said. “We’ve always done it when we’ve done live shows, but I and my record label felt I should get away from that with the first album. I wanted to show people I could sing, not just spit.”

However, when it comes to her love life, 32-year-old Alesha is not so happy.

“I work so much that when I do get time off I like to catch up with my friends and family who I never get to see,” she revealed. “I can’t remember the last time I went on a date.”

When she’s not making music or on TV, Alesha still finds time to do charity work.

She’s the face of the Variety club’s Gold Hearts Appeal and recently unveiled a 53m high projection on Battersea Power Station to launch the new and exclusive design for this year’s appeal badge.

When we complimented Alesha on the racy red dress that she models for the badge, she said ‘It’s a bit overwhelming seeing yourself projected on such a gigantic building – but I’m honoured to play a part in helping thousands of young people’.

The 32-year-old is also helping people of all ages get inspiration for party wear.  Leggings are great value and on trend for winter, especially ones with detail like the Love Label mesh panel leggings

Show off a flirty side with some South lace panel trim jersey leggings

Or shine through the crowds with some new Rare sequin leggings

Top it off with a Love Label split sleeve jersey dress

The BBC judge would get a 10 out of 10 for fashion – let’s hope her new album is equally well received.
