3 Words…To Save My Life

Cheryl Cole’s upcoming second single, 3 Words, premiered this morning on Chris Moyles’ BBC Radio 1 show. As a Will.I.Am produced track it’s unexpectedly and surprisingly brilliant.

Dubbed by Cheryl herself as the best song on her upcoming debut, 3 Words is a melancholic, mid-tempo piece of dance pop with a bit of an edge to it. Slightly experimental but at the same time it’s easy to recognise that it comes from the same place as tracks on The Black Eyed Peas latest album The E.N.D., particularly I Gotta Feeling. It wouldn’t sound out of place sat next to the latter, Missing You and Meet Me Halfway but judging from the clips of Cheryl’s debut album, it could sound out of place on there.

3 Words has the potential to be a huge hit for Cheryl. If clubs take to it like I Gotta Feeling, a number one is definitely in the bag.

Sugababes – “About A Girl” Music Video

The video for the debut single from Sugababes 4.0 About A Girl has been released following a rough edit which surfaced on the internet late last week. The final edit still features Amelle’s little “slip” at around 3:25 in the video (3:08 in the remix video). Below is the Sharp Boys Club Radio Edit using the final video edit:

While a good effort and idea, it wasn’t executed very well and comes across as slightly cheap and the actors (originally 3.0’s stunt doubles) could be mistaken for the Sugababes themselves by the casual viewer.
