Day Dream

Songfacts®:

  • This song from Alexandra Burke's NewRules EP finds the X Factor winner hitting out at her former boyfriend, footballer Jermaine Defoe. The singer ended her relationship with the England striker in 2012 after it was alleged he cheated on her with a model:

    "Millions of people and me, one.
    And I'm feeling I'm the last to know.
    Our private network we built became a best-seller show.
    What were you thinking at the time when you decided to sleep with her?
    It didn't stop there, this I know, 'cos the papers f--king told me so."

    Burke told The Mirror: "Working on this new material has been really emotional. I've opened up lyrically more than ever and talked about things I never thought I would. But I always write from the heart."
