Give the past eight years of Alesha Dixon
's career a dusting over and it's clear she's experienced more highs and lows than your average day out at Thorpe Park. However, over the past six months she's been unstoppable - largely because she's released exactly the right songs from her Alesha Show
album. Catching our attention with the novelty-ish 'The Boys Does Nothing'
, she followed it up by showcasing her thoughtful side on 'Breathe Slow'
. Now she's back and pulling her finest trick out from under her sleeve.
Just in time (hopefully) for summer, 'Let's Get Excited' is a perfect slice of exuberant pop that's sure to fill the dancefloor after a day spent lounging on the beach. With a ridiculously catchy chorus punctuated by a classic Dixon "hey hey hey", it's topped off with one of the year's most genius lyrics so far: "I'm so excited - I'm a detective I'm all over you." Just begging to be played at full volume across the land, this is further evidence that Alesha Dixon is fast becoming a bit of a national treasure.> Click here to read our review of Alesha Dixon's album
