Single Review: Pixie Lott - Broken Arrow

Pixie Lott

Release date

11 October 2010

The style

Fans of Cry Me Out will love Pixie Lott's new single, Broken Arrow, another stormy heart-wrenching song. This emotional ballad about love and loss is the first single from Turn It Up Louder, a re-packaged version of her debut album.

The words

Pixie sings about trying to get over her ex, 'the piece that I'm missing'.

The woeful lyrics expose the pop princess' vulnerable side, and the soaring chorus showcases her powerful voice.

Will you still be humming it next week?

It isn't the catchiest of tunes, but it will definitely grow on you.

Will it make the charts?

Yes! It's quite different from her up-beat hits like 'Boys and Girls' and 'Mama Do', but it's sure to be a hit.
