Alesha Dixon Biography
Dixon's career began in 1999, when she met Sabrina Washington as they joined Dance Attic (a popular dance class school in West London), and the both of them became a duo. In 2000, when both Dixon and Washington were auditioning, they met with Su-Elise Nash, and formed a trio. Soon, they were signed to Telstar Records with the addition of a new member, Zena McNally, and they became the popular Garage/R&B girl band, Mis-Teeq. However, right after the release of their debut single "Why?", Zena McNally had left the band to pursue her own solo career.
They went on as just a trio, and released their debut album. In 2001, they released their first album, Lickin' On Both Sides featuring hits such as "All I Want", "One Night Stand", "B With Me" and "Roll On / This Is How We Do It". In 2003, they released their second album, Eye Candy featuring hits such as "Scandalous" (a song that they are most famous for), "Can't Get It Back" and "Style". Following the two albums, they toured the United States in 2004 and released their American debut album Mis-Teeq, a compilation of the two albums released in Europe and Asia. At the same time, Dixon also appeared as a dancer in the music video for N*E*R 's single "She Wants To Move", from their second album Fly or Die.
In 2005, Mis-Teeq made a decision to separate, each to pursue a solo career. They released Greatest Hits that contained all of the hits they released on both audio and video. The last song they recorded together was "Shoo Shoo Baby", a song that was released for the Disney animated film Valiant.
Dixon has spent the last year preparing her solo debut album, Fired Up. She releases her first debut single "Lipstick" in August 2006, the music video has made its premiere on MTV UK in the second to last week of July. This will be featured on the debut album due October 2006, which she has collaborated with producers including Richard X, Xenomania, Johnny Douglas, Estelle, and Paul Eppe.
