Tipped to win last year’s X Factor from the very first start, kicked out off the competition in week 1, returning a few weeks before the final… it’s been a rather interesting and turbulent X Factor year for Middlesbrough-born Amelia Lily, but the ‘Comeback Kid’ is set for big things.
Not only did the singer land a record deal with Xenomenia (Known for many of Girls Aloud tracks) and record a duet with former mentor Kelly Rowland to start with, but over the weekend details concerning Amelia Lily’s debut single were unveiled.
‘You Bring Me Joy’ is without a doubt a huge step away from the tracks Lily performed on the X Factor. No offense to Kelly, but she did try to transform Lily into a mini-Xtina, Kelly Carkson or Pink. Xenomenia in that sense have wiped that slate clean as ‘You Bring Me Joy’ has that typical sound, known in many of the Girls Aloud produced songs, and while it took us a few listens to decide whether we liked it or not, the track grows with each listen and gives the singer a nice pop edge to kickstart her career.
‘You Bring Me Joy’ will be released on August 26.
