Afrotastic ‘X Factor’ star Fleur East is bringing ‘Sax’ to the US. We hope they’re ready!

Why hello Fleur with the afrotastically good hair (a.k.a she who can rock the squats onstage while wearing fishnets)…



Anyway moving swiftly on. So ya’ll remember when Fleur conquered the UK with her bold, brassy hit single ‘Sax’ last winter? Well in the last few months since then ‘Sax’ has gone on to be a smash hit all over the world, including  in Australia, Europe and South America. But you can’t achieve world domination without conquering the US so now Fleur’s wandering eyes have turned across the pond and she’s looking to kick off her assault on the US charts with a brand new sexy look.


In true Fleur style she is blasting out of the blocks all cylinders firing. She will be performing on the grand finale of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ (the US ‘Strictly Come Dancing’)! That means…

Lots of sassy handclaps with fleurtatious looks at the camera.

And plenty o shoop shoopin’.

Fleur with the good hair will also be performing on ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ which has had some stellar stars recently. Fleur will fit right in.

And it doesn’t stop there! The following Tuesday, Fleur will perform on ‘The Today Show’ as well. That’s a lotta saxy ‘Sax’.

But there’s plenty of Fleur to go around because she can divide and duplicate like bacteria (but in a much more fabulous way).

We LOVE it when British talent does well overseas, especially when they break the US ‘cos that ain’t no easy task, no sir. But she isn’t abandoning us because she will be back in the UK soon to announce a new UK single and play a series of summer gigs including ‘MTV Crashes’ and ‘V Festival’. Every day we love her more and more!

Remind yourselves of how catchy ‘Sax’ is by watching the vid here:
