Pixie Lott: Loads of new "content"

We mentioned hotly-tipped teen sensation Pixie Lott a couple of weeks ago and, while not exactly slating her, suggested that perhaps her Duffy-lite pop ditties were a touch opportunistic.

We were instantly inundated with (two) comments, protesting that Pixie has an amazing voice and a catchy single. These statements are hard to deny, but they also applied to Joss Stone two years ago, and look how that turned out.

Anyway, I actually managed to see the young hopeful record a Radio 2 session a couple of weeks ago and, to be completely honest, she's very good. And very tall.

Her debut single, Mama Do, is a surefire top 10 hit and the follow-up Gravity is a cracking ballad, even if it does crib from Bleeding Love a bit. But I was most impressed by Cry Me Out, a huge, string-drenched Philly soul groove which bears a slight resemblance to Alicia Keys' You Don't Know My Name and, creditably, does not suffer by that comparison.

Videos of the session, which featured the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, are up on the Radio 2 website until the end of the week, and audio versions are available on Pixie's official Youtube channel.

The video for Mama Do was also released last week (this train is really building up steam, isn't it?). Unlike Little Boots, Pixie at least has a go at the choreography…
