Alexandra Burke's best bits

I'll be honest, when it was announced that Alexandra Imelda Cecelia Ewan Burke's album had been recorded with the likes of Akon, Flo-Rida and Pharrell Williams, my hopes were not high. There's something a bit Ali G about UK artists who come back from the States singing about how they "got game" and imploring the audience to shake "dem" booties.

Thankfully, Alexandra has taken the Estelle / Sugababes route of combining R&B edginess with good old-fashioned pop chops. Her debut single, Bad Boys, is actually very good indeed. Here are the three best bits:

1) Ooh-weh, ooh-wah

2) With the alphabet, she only sings the crooked letters

3) Woooooooooo (Bad Boys)

And that's not even the chorus!!

You can presumably hear the full thing over on Youtube (youtube). But why not try imagining what it sounds like based on the clips above before clicking on the link... You might be pleasantly surprised.
