Tallest Girl

Album: Do It For Love (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • A tribute to her boyfriend Azuka Ononye, this dance anthem finds Alesha Dixon proclaiming that she feels empowered by his love, and on top of the world. She said: "'Tallest Girl' is a dark but uplifting record that expresses love. There is no better feeling when the one you love makes you feel like you are the tallest girl in the world!"
  • When this song was released, the Brazilian Maria Feliciana dos Santos was the tallest girl in the world, standing at 7 feet 4.4 inches tall. Alesha Dixon, at 5 feet and 6.5 inches tall, has a long way to grow to live up to the song title.
  • For the video, Alesha Dixon morphed into powerful historic women, including a sword-wielding empress. She said: "The empress was the most fun as I got to play around with a sword! The purple wig was pretty out there but I think I managed to pull it off."
