The ruthlessness by some of y'all

Alexandra's EP #NewRules loses half of it's tracks as Daydream, Fix You and Leave A Message leave us at 46, 47 and 49. Josh shows his true bitchy colours as he rates every track a 00.0 and Bal showcases us a curious case of mindless stanning as he gives Leave A Message an 8.

Daydream and Fix you arn't as bad as people are making it out to be. Surely the whole EP was an embarrasment, but Day Dream is lyrically quite good (Slay that cheating bast*rd gurl) and Fix You is an amazing cover. None are good enough to be in Alex's top 40 tho and she should step up her game for album #3.

In #48 is the biggest embarassment yet imo. Not that it's absolutely horrific. Alexandra's vocal are good on Where Do Hearts Go?, but it's the cheesy lyrics, the demoish production and the fact that this stalled at #231 on iTunes on release and probably made about 10p for charity, what makes it so bad. The embarrassment was real when Alexandra released this, received a major backlash from her "true fans" and caused a lot of drama within the stanbase, which I shall not adress.

"Haters to the left" in the centre what is this craziness Tim heehee.gif

No losses there at all. Where Do Hearts Go? is the kind of thing you wouldn't even expect to come out of a Poundland record label. So cheap sounding and just a non-song. Leave a Message is iconic though *_*

So our next bunch sees yet another charity single leave. Everybody Hurts was released after the Hati eathquak that destroyed the whole entire country and being the saint she is, Alexandra signed up to help and even went there herself as part of Helping Hati. The song reached #1 and sold 453.000 copies in its first week. The highest for a UK charity single in the 21st century. It charted in various countries all over the world, including Australia (yass Alex, get that Aussie top 30), Germany, Italy and Sweden.

Also leaving us are Seduce You and Try, both track from #NewRules. Secude You was deemed the best of a bad bunch, but has since been removed from Soundcloud, leaving fans to speculate if she was intending to use it for her album, but that dream was crushed when we found out the beat was used in another song I can't remember.
Try is just plain bad, can't help it. Josh once again showcases his vile intentions with all them 00's.

Christmas Time ends the journey at #42. Released as part of an EP called "Christmas Gift" on Christmas Day, it was a pleasant surprise. Alexandra teased the gift for quite a while and the song didn't embarrass us. However it's cheesy lyrics rubbed many the wrong way.

Just missing out on the top 40 is our first Heartbreak On Hold track, What Money Can't Buy. It is the only ballad on the track, which makes it seem like it was stuck on the behind just because Alex wanted it to. Alexandra wrote it when she was younger, but the song itself is just bad. Even I hate it and have deleted it from my iTunes.

OMG.com screaming at that first section

I'll have you know my "stanning" for 'Leave A Message" is purely ironic, promise!!

She really lost it with that EP. Like to the point where it's so bad, it's actually quite endearing (and I love her for it).

'What Money Can't Buy' is BAD. Especially coming after the incredible 'Sitting On Top Of The World' on the album.

Is 'Bounty Hunter' the highest from '#newrules' then?? Slaying as it should be.

WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE?! DAYLIGHT ROBBERY IS ONE OF THE BEST TRACK ON HEARTBREAK ON HOLD AND YOU ALLOWED IT TO FINISH #36?! GURL BYE DONE WITH Y"ALL!

One a more serious note, Alexandra's most annoying song ever Love You That Much ends the day just inside the top 40. One of the biggest duds of a not so perfect (but still incredibly good) pop album. Everything about it just annoys me.

Bounty Hunter wins the award for the highest track from #NewRules. I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing, but let's keep it positive people! Bounty Hunter is often refered to as one of the best tracks and the one that has potential for an actual album track! Besides the cringeworthy parent talk at the start, it's actually really good!

Bonus track from Heartbreak On Hold, Devil In Me is up next at #38. The track right was a bonus track, but I'd have preferred it to be left off and replaced by Shots For The DJ (feat. Pitbull) or More, both are considerably better. More however only did a little better ending at #37. THe dancepop song shits on your faves discography, so shame on y'all.

Both Draper and Davidson are serving us a class in "How to piss of Tim 101". With a 0 to Daylight Robbery, a -1 to More and a 9 to Devil In Me, these 2 know how to rub me the wrong way. Get it together guys!

Leaving us at #35 and #34 are 2 leaked tracks, Fear Of Flying and Light Of A Dreamer.
Both tracks leaked as part of a massive leak on SyCo's side, in which various Leona and Alexandra tracks leaked, when Alexandra was preparing for the release of Overcome and Bad Boys. Both are excellent tracks and could've replaced a fair few tracks on her albums (What Happens On The Dancefloor anyone?!). Trust ScenesofSixCrimes to mark them low tho...

Silent Night at #33 was first performed by Alexandra on The X Factor: The Final, as part of her 4 song bid to win the contest. SInce then fans ahd been asking for a studio recording of it and Alexandra finally decided to grant our wish. Alexandra's lush vocals were amazing on this track, altho I'm still no fan of the song itself, but each to their own I guess.

I can't believe I'm about to introduce this song to the stage, but at #32 we find This Love Will Survive. HOW?! It's just so good and definately one of my favourites from Alexandra's 2nd album! Y'all need Jesus.
The next song however, I shall not weep for. Bury Me (6 Feet Under) ends at #31 and deservedly so. Bury Me is good, but a complete dud on a perfect pop album. It's just so much worse than the rest of Overcome.
