OK, America, I’ve gathered us all here today because there’s something special happening in the U.K. right now and it deserves our attention. ThinkStock A really good pop star, Fleur East, released a really great single, “Sax,” and we, collectively, need to get behind both. Simco Limited Some quick background: Fleur East is a two-time X Factor alum, who competed on the show’s second and eleventh seasons. The 28-year-old singer originally appeared as part of the girl group, Addictiv Ladies, but went solo after they were eliminated in 2005. After a couple of failed singles, she re-auditioned for the show alone in 2014 and went on to finish second. Now, she’s signed to Simon Cowell’s record label and prepping her debut album, Love, Sax and Flashbacks. Too often a really good pop star with a really great song surfaces in the U.K. and we, as Americans, choose not to pay attention. Ian Gavan / Anthony Harvey / Jason Merritt / Getty Images Sure, Ella Henderson’s “Ghost” did ~OK~ here and most Americans know what Rita Ora ~looks like~, but neither woman gets a fraction of the respect or attention they deserve. And Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (née Tweedy, formerly Cole)? We just straight-up dropped the ball with her. "Fight For This Love," "Parachute," and "Call My Name" all should've been huge hits here. This is not a fate we can let befall Fleur. Simco Ltd Not when "Sax" sounds like the better version of songs that we already love. ArianaGrandeVEVO / FleurSaxVEVO / MarkRonsonVEVO Real talk: “Sax” is the song Ariana Grande has been aspiring to for two years. So, my fellow Americans, in the interest of U.S.-U.K. relations, please listen to “Sax.” View this video on YouTube youtube.com And maybe enjoy Fleur’s covers of “Levels” and “Uptown Funk” while you’re at it. We’ve gotta make up for wasting all that tea somehow.
