Pixie Lott’s first album ‘Turn It Up’ is the first step towards her star status, with collaborations with Red One (Lady Gaga, ‘Just Dance’) and prestigious song writers like Ruth Ann Cunningham and Toby Gad (‘If I Were A Boy’ and ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’). The songs on her debut album range in her genre, stretching from upbeat pop princess to soulful Alicia Keys inspired ballads. These upbeat, head turning songs depict the fun, youthful and magnetic person she is and creates an image of a pretty, blonde bopping around her bedroom singing into the mirror.
Songs on this album include the well-known singles ‘Mama Do’, ‘Boys And Girls’ and ‘Cry Me Out’ which became huge hits in Britain and America due to the youthful and sexy-fun of her music videos and lyrics. Her lyrics are written in the perspective of a teenage girl reflecting on boys, crushed dreams, heart breaks and love. ‘Mama Do’ is a tale of a girl sneaking out of the house without her parents’ knowledge to meet a boy and ‘Cry Me Out’ is a song telling someone ‘It’s time to get over yourself’ and accept the blame. Songs like these create a strong connection between fans and Pixie due to her relatable lyrics and bubbly beats.
She is still a young and growing artist with influences like Mariah Carey and Alicia Keys, and with contracts with Mercury Records in the UK and Interscope in America Pixie has a bright future ahead of her. She is definitely an artist to listen out for, especially with future collaborations with noteworthy artists like Jason Derulo. Her new album ‘Turn It Up Louder’ was released on 10th October 2010.
