Alesha Dixon Returns With New Single Ransom

Monday, 03 June 2024 Written by Jon Stickler

Alesha Dixon has released her first new single in nine years.

Ransom finds the British MC expanding on her R&B, garage and hip hop roots, fusing dancehall and reggae with a sample from Ini Kamoze's 1994 hit Here Comes The Hotstepper. Produced by Supa Dups, it arrives with a video shot on location in Port Antonio and Kingston, Jamaica, reflecting the singer's Jamaican heritage. She said:

"I'm not trying to play the game, I'm just doing me, and that feels really cool - that's where I’m at.

"I wanted a sample that was super familiar. Known and loved by all races, I wanted to fuse my commercial persona with my roots, the music I grew up on and still love that is such a big part of who I am. Being in Jamaica feels like home and it has both a spiritual calm as well as a bass line thumping around every corner!"

Dixon's most recent album is 2015's 'Do It For Love'.
