Absolute Artists On A-List

BBC Radio 2

A fantastic week at Radio 2 for Absolute’s roster, with 2 new additions to the A-List.

Hot off the heels of a fantastic performance on Britain’s Got Talent, Alesha Dixon returns with her brand new single “The Way We Are”, including an alternate version of the track featuring Alesha and her signature rapping, which was premiered on the show last night. Immediately after the performance, Alesha started trending on Twitter in the UK, with an overwhelming response from her notoriously passionate fan base. “The Way We Are” storms straight on to Radio 2’s A-List this week and marks the return of one of the UK’s most iconic pop stars.

Joining her on the A-List is Radio 2 favourite Nell Bryden, whose latest offering “Waves” features a guest appearance from Tom McRae, exclusive to the radio edit. Nell has recently been awarded the highly coveted “Album of the Week” from Radio 2, celebrating with a re-issue of her critically acclaimed album “Wayfarer”, featuring the single edit of “Waves”, alongside a reel of additional bonus tracks. This marks Nell’s 14th consecutive single to be added, cementing her status as one of Radio 2’s most consistently playlisted artist.

Alongside these great successes, Carolynne Poole maintains her status on the C-List with her catchy country/pop anthem “I Love You But Shut Up”. As Carolynne’s first single, she’s definitely residing in the “Ones to Watch” of 2015, with this only the beginning of what’s sure to be an exciting and successful year for her as an artist.
