Amelia Lily is back! One of our faves from X Factor class of 2011, the big voiced rock chick released a handful of amazing, Xenomania (Girls Aloud, The Saturdays) produced singles before having her debut album unceremoniously shelved without explanation. However not to worry as she’s returned with a new record deal and a brand spanking new single for our listening pleasure. Hooray!
‘California’ is a sun-kissed, bouncy pop rock number with some naggingly catchy hooks, particularly the somewhat ridiculous “Cal – i – for – ni – a” and “Done -Dee – Done -Dee – Done” parts, but sometimes a pop song needs a silly lyric or two.
The track out on August 25th and Amelia is also set to bring out that long awaited album sometime in the autumn so watch this space…
We like a bit of Amelia Lily here at MP! Towers: She released a hattrick of three amazing singles – ‘You Bring Me Joy’, ‘Shut Up and Give Me Whatever You Got’ and ‘Party Over’ – but with the exception of her debut single, the follow up singles failed to set the charts alight, causing her ‘Be A Fighter’ album to be shelved indefinitely. Boo.
However, she DID say that she would recording a whole bunch of new tracks, and it seems she’s made good on that promise. The X Factor star recently posted up a video of herself on Instagram, recording vocals in the studio and generally having a good time.
So, could we finally be getting that long awaited debut album? We certainly hope so!
Amelia announced the news via her official Twitter account and assured fans that new material with her record company, pop juggernauts Xenomania, is “really exciting”. While we’re certainly disappointed that the album isn’t coming, new music is good news to us, and maye this second start will be exactly what Ms Lily needs to make a proper global popstar. POP BITS OUT.
Check out the video for Amelia Lily’s rather excellent ‘Party Over’ below.
Amelia Lily has gone all futuristic to help celebrate the launch of The Sims 3 Into The Future. We have never seen a pop star look this hot wearing clothes from 2113 since… erm… EVER!
Amelia Lily revealed that she was excited about the shoot, especially since she is is an avid Sims fan. The Sims 3 Into The Future allows players to switch between the present day and future and you don’t even need a DeLorean to do so!
Do you hear that? It’s the sound of another glorious Alarm Pop, helping you through the Tuesday blues.
Our latest Alarm Pop comes from X Factor alumni, pop princess and expert party planner, Amelia Lily. It’s a track called ‘Truth Or Dare’, which Girls Aloud’s Ten: The Hits Tour attendees would have heard live when Ms. Lily supported them at the beginning of the year.
‘Truth Or Dare’ is quite similar to the other material that Amelia has released with a strong ‘Shut Up (And Give Me Whatever You Got)’ vibe. It’s filled with toe-tapping beats and has reminded us just how much we miss A-Lilz pop/rock vocals.
It was originally intended to be released on her permanently delayed album, ‘Be A Fighter’. With the LP currently being reworked and improved, will ‘Truth Or Dare’ make it on to the album?
What do you think of the track? Would you like to hear it on ‘Be A Fighter’ or do you think Amelia needs to scrap the Xenomania tracks and go for a new sound?
POP BITS. The X Factor really is good at picking pop stars, isn’t it? Sometimes we feel like we don’t give Louis, Gary, Nicole, Sharon, Simon, Cheryl and Dannii the credit they deserve. After all, they did give us One Direction!
The tenth series of X Factor is drawing near and the musical geniuses behind the X Factor decided to throw together a little mash up for us all to enjoy. It features winners and runner-uppers from the hit TV Talent show including One Direction, Olly Murs, Little Mix, Cher Lloyd and even Shayne Ward! No sign of Matt Cardle though and it seems as though his management isn’t too happy about that.
Are your favourite X Factor contestants in the mash up? Or did they leave someone important out? *cough* Diana Vickers *cough*. POP BITS OUT.
Give the megamix a spin below and let us know what you think:
POP BITS. What with JLS splitting up, The Wanted setting the internet alight with their new track, Union J emerging from the recording studio with an ace new tune and One Direction being… well, One Direction, it really is a boy bands world in the big bad pop world out there. It’s hard for solo artists like poor Amelia Lily to even get a look in, never mind the news that the ‘You Bring Me Joy’ songstress’ album ‘Be A Fighter’ has been delayed yet again.
The album was at first meant to tickle our ear drums on the 21st of April but was then pushed back to May 20th and now the album has been moved all the way back to June 29th. The delays have us worried and we fear the worst, that ‘Be A Fighter’ might share the same fate as fellow Xenomania act Mini Viva’s debut album (i.e. it mightn’t even happen).
We hope that Amelia takes inspiration from her album title and fights to get it out there. We all need to get behind her and help make this album happen, after all it’s only fair after she helped us plan an awesome imaginary party. Let’s all say a prayer that the party isn’t over for Ms. Lily.
Listen to Amelia’s latest single ‘Party Over’ below. POP BITS OUT.

POP BITS. It’s all getting exciting for X-Factor graduate Amelia Lily. She’s three-for-three when it comes to amazing singles and has just released the video for third single ‘Party Over’. She’s been touring the country playing in front of thousands supporting Girls Aloud. All this from a girl who was never even supposed to be in the X-Factor finals.
The video sees the pink-haired starlet seemingly travelling through time both surveying the damage of a house party as well as engaging in the debauched anarchy getting in a pillow fight with a wolf and losing a bet that ends with her getting a tattoo. It’s fair to say a good time is had by all.
It’s been a crazy whirlwind for a girl who’s still only 18. Amelia said of her experience, “Only 15 months ago, I’d just finished my GCSEs and left school. A couple of months later, I was on the biggest television show going, got knocked out, came back, got to the final, came third, & got a record deal. Now I’ve released two singles, shot videos in Los Angeles, and recorded my first album!” The album, called ‘Be A Fighter’ will be released on April 24th and if the previous singles are anything to go by, it’ll be an absolute corker. POP BITS OUT.
