It’s raining X Factor news these days with some highly anticipated releases coming up. A quick overview.
Marcus Collins, the runner up from this years contest is currently promoting his first single ”Seven Nation Army”, followed by his first album a good week later. Now when we reviewed the video a few weeks back we said we weren’t sure but thanks to radiostation Gaydar we have discovered the Cutmore Radio Edit of ‘Seven Nation Army’ which has given it much more punch and is right up our street. We hope it’s included on the EP, so we can buy it straight away. So check it out the video for your own verdict!
While Marcus is up for his very first single, the runner up of the X Factor in 2010, the lovely Rebecca Ferguson, released her album ‘Heaven’ back in December and is ready to release the 2nd cut ‘Too Good To Loose’. It’s without a doubt the track which will come closest to her rendition of ‘Sweet Dreams’ on the X Factor. The vocals of Rebecca are simply outstanding, absolutely pure class. Not quite the video expected of the song, but it fits it amazingly. If you haven’t got it on pre-order yet, or bought the album I suggest you do.
And while we’re at it, we also have news of X Factor 2009 runner up, Olly Murs who told us a few weeks ago, he’s releasing ‘Oh My Goodness’ as the 3rd cut from his second album already ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’. Mr Murs, who lost out on a Brit Award last week for ‘Song of the Year’, has now revealed the video for the jazzy swing-pop song which sees him making the Westfield Shopping Centre unsafe to find a girl he has laid his eyes on. Go Get’er Olly! Great vocals from Olly, and definately one of the highlights chosen for his new single, which will be out April, 1.
