Hi everyone, sorry for the lack of updates on the blog, I was away for three weeks due to a family illness. Back now and I’ve just seen Cheryl Cole’s new solo video. What do you make of it? Watch it here
The song is more slick R&B than bouncy Girls Aloud pop, and the lyrics seem to refer to the ups and downs of Cheryl’s relationship with Ashley Cole. When Cheryl sings lyrics such as: “Quitting is out of the question, when it gets tough we got to fight for more. We got to fight for this love,” she surely can’t help thinking of the tough time they went through in 2008 following accusations that Ashley was unfaithful.
Fight For This Love was written by a team of US/UK songwriters who penned Genie In A Bottle for Christina Aguilera, as well as hits for Natasha Bedingfield, Leona Lewis and Beyonce.
The track is released on October 19, just one week after Alexandra Burke’s new single, Bad Boys. Obviously Chezza mentored Alexandra to X Factor success, so I guess rumours that the pair will record a duet together were to be expected. According to Heat magazine, Simon Cowell supports the idea of a duet, probably because of all the money he knows he’ll make when the track goes to number one! If it happens, it won’t be until the middle of next year. But you won’t have to wait that long to see Cheryl perform solo – she’ll sing Fight For This Love on X Factor in mid-October.
