The nation’s sweetheart JOE McELDERRY returns to the airwaves to beat the January blues with his kiss-off hit, BABY HAD YOUR FUN. Taking cues from the almighty FLEETWOOD MAC, this new song brings country to disco, proving that McElderry has what it takes to build on his lockdown momentum and provide the fun-filled anthem we all need. BABY HAD YOUR FUN is out 22nd January 2021.
BABY HAD YOUR FUN is disco as you’ve never heard it before. McElderry’s mighty
vocal chords put him in good stead to steer this defiant kiss-off belter, which combines traditional disco beats with a western flair and a cheeky attitude. Written during lockdown with writing sessions spanning the globe – Sweden, the US, London and Sheffield included – this song is truly an example of what can be achieved when talents work together on a common goal. The video was filmed in Jade Thirwall’s Nightclub in South Shields and shows McElderry to be as confident on the dancefloor as he is behind the mic.
It’s also a complete departure from anything McElderry has turned his hand to before – a powerfully upbeat song marks a significant change from his ballads of yesteryear. Taking cues from the almighty FLEETWOOD MAC alongside disco queens such as DONNA SUMMER and CHAKA KHAN, this track promises to be a staple of nightclubs the world over – as soon as we can get out there!
Joe McElderry is a man of many talents. Not content with the £20,000 he raised for the Customs House and Acting for Others (the national Charity) in South Shields, McElderry has kept himself – and us – busy during lockdown with his Zoom interview series, Between Me and You. These chats included fellow stars Alexandra Burke, Jade Thirlwall, John Barrowman and Drag Race star Baga Chips. Joe was also asked to present his own radio show for Pride Radio over the Christmas period. The future Graham Norton has been performing zoom concerts from his living room, to a wide audience of over 15,000 in total, during the lockdowns- a larger capacity than The Royal Albert Hall.
2021 marks a new chapter in the era of Joe McElderry. With a killer track and a brand new attitude, this is the sort of popstar we could all learn a little from during times of adversity.
BABY HAD YOUR FUN is out 22nd January 2021.
