Alexandra Burke plotting ‘floor filler’ return to pop after Who Dares Wins success

Alexandra Burke is hoping to lift everyone’s spirits by unleashing new ‘floor-filling’ pop songs now that she’s fresh from her SAS: Who Dares Wins victory.

The 33-year-old singer’s last album was her 2018 record The Truth Is which was packed full of ballads and soulful tunes.

But Alex is said to be planning a return to her pop banger roots with a new album that she hopes will replicate her early success similar to when she unleashed tunes following her win on The X Factor in 2008.

The chart topping star has also drafted in hit music producers Dot Inc and Parx to create her new tunes – who previously worked with Sean Paul and Wes Nelson.

A source told The Sun: “Alexandra is back in the studio and feeling more inspired than ever.

“She performed all of her hits at Mighty Hoopla in London at the beginning of September and the reaction was so overwhelming that it has given her the push to make huge floor-filling pop songs again.

“The music is really upbeat and just about celebrating life, love and having a good time.

“Her creative juices are flowing and she feels like a brand new artist after winning SAS. She’s got a lot more to give. Life is exciting again for her and she’s back in her happy place.”

Alex has already been teasing fans with snippets of her new music on social media.

Taking to Instagram over the last week, she shared footage of herself hard at work making new music and wrote: “Album 4 studio sessions… I couldn’t be more excited!”

While on Twitter she wrote: “I’m reflecting and feeling so grateful. Feeling good in my own skin to be confident enough 2 make music that sparks nothing but JOY inside of me. Grateful for my team… they push me. I can’t wait for you all to hear what’s next.”

Alex hit the top of the charts three times previously – including her debut single Hallelujah in 2008, first original single Bad Boys in 2009, and her 2010 song Start Without You.

While her debut album, Overcome, also topped the album chart and sold over one million copies.

TV fans recently saw Alex win Channel 4 ’s brutal military training reality show Celebrity SAS: Who Wins Dares.

Alex was one of only three contestants to make it all the way to the final challenge and ultimately won the show.

Speaking to the Mirror earlier this month, Alex explained the toll the competition took on her – physically and mentally.

She said: “I was crying all the time. If I saw an advert for the Army, I had a panic attack. That side of it was really awful.

“I did get therapy. I wasn’t sleeping well at all. I always thought there was somebody outside waiting to attack me. So I got a bit paranoid.”
