Single: All Night Long - Alexandra Burke ft Pitbull

Alexandra Burke

Release date

9 May 2010

The style

How does she do it? Alexandra Burke has belted out another pop-dance classic.

This is a really catchy tune which will be filling dancefloors everywhere.

Her voice is earthy and gravelly, and really cool on this single.

And she looks amazing. There's a touch of Lady Gaga about her outfits... one is an off-the-shoulder black leotard with a big, puffy sleeve.

Don't forget to check out her incredible eyeshadow - it looks like it's made of real silver flakes.

There's also a rap towards the end from Pitbull who features on this track.

The words

'Heyyyy, ohhhhh, heyyyy, ohhhh.

'All night, all night, all night, all night,' she chants at the start. And you know you're in for a stonking good pop tune.

The song is basically about Alexandra being in a club with her man, and her favourite song comes on. And she doesn't want the song to end because they're having such a great time together.

'As long as I see the strobe lights, I'm dancing all night long. When we're together baby, I'm feeling alright, you got me all night long,' she sings.

Will you still be humming it next week?

Yes, the chorus is insanely catchy.

It's pretty much as addictive as Bad Boys was - and that was one catchy song!

Will it make the charts?

It would be a crime if this song didn't make the top three.

But we reckon there's a good chance this could be Alexandra's third number one.

Be warned though - you won't be able to get it out of your head for days...
