Big News - Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke, Esmee Denters crossover to other major markets

Esmee Denters, Alexandra Burke, and Pixie Lott are on their way to the US. Pixie's debut Turn It Up sees a release of 26th January in Canada, and 16th February in the US. Pixie's Mama Do and Boys And Girls have all been chart-toppers in her native country, while Cry Me Out has been a silent success, so far peaking at #12, but whether she can replicate this success in the US remains to be seen, but we all love Pixie, don't we?

Justin Timberlake's protege Esmee Denters was found on YouTube when she started posting videos of covers and was soon an Internet phenomenon. Tiberlake himself discovered her talent when she covered his hit song What Goes Around.../...Comes Around and was quickly signed to Tiberlake's label Tenman Records. Esmee has found much success in her native country Netherlands, and her debut album Outta Here will finally be released in the US and the UK. In the US, her album will be released on January 12th and 11th in the UK. In the UK, Esmee has found a bit more success. Debut single Outta Here hit the Top 10 while it hasn't charted in the US yet despite being released to radio.

Winner of the 5th season of Simon Cowell's reality television show The X Factor in the UK, Alexandra Burke has had a massive career so far, nabbing 2 UK #1 singles, UK #1 album, and is set to continue that success with the second official single from Overcome, called Broken Heels. Alexandra's album does not have an official release date in the US yet, but it will be released next year under Epic Records. Alexandra could very well be the next Leona Lewis, who won her season during the X Factor.
