Gravity

Album: Turn It Up (2009)
Charted: 20

Songfacts®:

  • This love song is the fourth single from the English teenage singer-songwriter Pixie Lott's debut album, Turn It Up. Norwegian songwriter Ina Wroldsen, who is responsible for many of The Saturdays' hits, co-penned the track. The other co-writers are the Danish duo of Jonas Jeberg & Cutfather (Kylie Minogue, Pussycat Dolls), and Danish-American Grammy and MTV Award-nominated pop music writer and producer Lucas Secon, who has worked with The Pussycat Dolls, Sugababes, and Sean Kingston amongst others.
  • "Every time I try to leave, you keep pulling me back like gravity." Even though she betrayed him, apparently. When she performed this song on the GMTV breakfast news programme at the time it was released, one of the presenters remarked, here comes Pixie Lott "with those gorgeous pins." Tough luck, sport, she was wearing trousers, although unlike that other blonde bombshell, Britney Spears, the stunning Miss Lott both writes her own material and sings it live rather than lip synch - no, she didn't write this one. This song is passable, but it is also purely commercial; those with a taste for true gravity should visit The Allman Brothers Band, or the charming Miss Runga. >>
