Girls Aloud - Something New

The fab five are back together, and their new track, the official Children In Need single, is a real tune. The girls - Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Sarah Harding - share singing duties on a catchy chorus and hooks including: “We’re the leaders of the pack, and you better watch your back.”

Rudimental Feat. John Newman and Alex Clare - Not Giving In

The follow-up single to Feel The Love is another great track from the Hackney quartet, made up of songwriters and producers Piers Agget, Kesi Dryden, Amir Amor and DJ Locksmith. It starts off with John Newman’s haunting vocals, before the crescendo of a thumping beat and Clare on guest vocals.

Alicia Keys - Girl On Fire

Featuring Nicki Minaj with her trademark rap on the Inferno remix, Alicia Keys shows she’s back with a vengeance. The title track from her upcoming fifth album Girl On Fire is a feisty tune from the sultry songstress and is a tantalising taster of what’s to come.
