Ahead of her return to The X Factor stage this weekend, Fleur East has finally released her debut single for the world to hear. And it’s EXCELLENT. Sax, which you may have already heard a snippet of in the new Asda Christmas campaign, is a high-energy, brassy track with all the sass you might expect from the woman who last year made Uptown Funk a thing before it was even released. It features trumpets, a pounding baseline and of course that saxy riff which, reminding us of early Beyonce, is disgustingly catchy. Many fans have preached that Fleur would be the real winner of last year’s show and whilst actual victor Ben Haenow is sitting pretty with his new single Second Hand Heart, Sax is only just whetting fans’ appetite for her upcoming album Love, Sax and Flashbacks, out on December 4.
Fleur will be performing on X Factor’s results show tomorrow at 8pm. Listen to the track below:
