      I've had this song in my head all day when I've been out and about - I'm DYING to hear Cheryl's version on Monday!

      The lyrics get me slightly. :(

            Andre's vocals are AMAZING!
            Her vocals are not that good at all but I really hope she does the song its justice cause it's INCREDIBLE!! I really didn't expect this song to be this good and sounding this r&B!

            Song is on repeat, damn what a surprise!

              Some more confirmations:

              - This single will not feature Taio Cruz, or anyone else.
              - The video will have LOTS of dancing - male and female, with an urban feel.
              - Cheryl is releasing her album on the same day as Alexandra.

                I would NEVER have expected them to go head to head, especially since Alexandra was Cheryl's act on The X Factor. I wonder was this purposely planned.

                  Same! If I was Cheryl, I would change the release date before the backlash starts!
                  tell the others you've gone to sea...

                        As much as I love Cheryl and this song, there's no chance in hell Cheryl would win against Alexandra in the same week - she has over 300,000 pre-orders already, supposedly!

                        This must be a ploy to keep X-Factor viewers on the edge of their seats in hyping some type of 'rivalry' between them.

                                Popjustice review

                                How odd, but how brilliant to be reviewing a Cheryl Cole single. It feels wrong but surprisingly right.

                                So here's the thing to get out of the way: 'Fight For This Love' is not a Girls Aloud single. It's a fresh-sounding modern pop record, but it's not Girls Aloud. It's not supposed to be Girls Aloud. Brian Higgins has talked of Xenomania's big flashpoint at the start of the decade coming as a reaction to the R&B-styled pop tuneage that dominated the charts and was, at that point, 'the sound of pop'. 'Fight For This Love' is, if anything, almost an 'anti-Xenomania' record - Cheryl Colo's debut solo single is an R&B-styled pop tune. Most significantly, very importantly for Cheryl's first solo tune outside Girls Aloud (but also, from the way it sounds, quite unselfconsciously) 'Fight For This Love' is very definitely not just a Girls Aloud single with one person singing it.

                                Anyone thinking of doing a Shirley Valentine after hearing about Leona's new single (general idea: I'm not picking up your socks any more, I'm off) might have faith restored by 'Fight For This Love' with its belief that "anything that's worth having, sure enough worth fighting for, quitting's out of the question, when it gets tough gotta fight some more" and a fairly clear chorus message: "we gotta fight (fight), fight (fight) fight for this love". In spirit it's either a lot less or a lot more mature than the Leona track; either way it's ******* brilliant. It's one of those songs you can have on repeat for an hour and a half without getting bored.

                                One thing that hits you is - well, is this really what Cheryl sounds like? Vocally it's a big surprise. It's so usual to hear Cheryl through the Xenomania filter. As it turns out, she sounds really great - strong, confident, direct. Like a proper pop singer. We suppose being a member of a pop group for the best part of a decade should have been a fairly strong hint re the whole 'proper pop singer' thing but you know how it is with members of bands - they're just members of bands until, er, they're not any more. (This paragraph might need a bit of work - Ed)

                                Like some of the best pop tunes 'Fight For This Love' is a very simple affair without bells, whistles or kitchen sinks, but there's more going on than is initially obvious and the production's certainly a cut above. The song doesn't start with a big fanfare - it eases itself into view and suddenly Cheryl's singing and the song's started - and it ends not with a bang but with a gradual fade. It's a sleek, powerful production and while we were walking across a bridge yesterday evening it was unexpectedly this, not the Leona single, that we found rattling around in our head. GET THE CHAMPAGNE OUT POLYDOR, IT PASSES THE BRIDGE TEST.

                                Worst Line/Best Line
                                » "Every day ain't gonna be no picnic, love ain't no walk in the park" (outdoor pursuit double negativeometer explodes)
                                » "Just know that united we stand alone" (amazing)

                                The Best Four Motoring References In This Tune
                                » "Makes it hard to know which road to go down"
                                » "Is it better is it worse are we sitting in reverse?"
                                » "What I don't wanna do is crash"
                                » "We've been driving so fast we just need to slow down"

                                Additional Data
                                » There's a breakdown clap along bit after the middle eight. Oh yes.
                                » The middle eight is the best bit.
                                » This would be a good Whitney track - in fact at times there's a bit of a Whitneyish tone to Cheryl's voice.
                                » If this song was walking down the street, they - and by 'they' we mean general passers-by - would say 'hey sexy'. Sadly the street in question would be one outside a mental hospital following a large-scale breakout because in real life people in total control of their mental faculties do not pass people in the street and say 'hey sexy' to them.
                                » It's better than all Thom Yorke solo material ever.

                                    I'm so incredibly excited for this I only don't understand why Cheryl and Alexandra are releasing their debut album on the same day, very weird. I hope she pushes it back another week or something. That is honestly the last thing we need, a chart battle between them.

                                    And great to see she has the same director as Poker Face.

                                      I've never really been a fan of Ray Kay tbh, apart from the 'Beware Of The Dog' video, which I love.

                                      I just hope its an elaborate video, because the other stuff like 'Me and U' by Cassie are quite plain.

                                            She looks stunning. I'm already very excited for the single and album artwork.

                                            It still feels a bit surreal honestly, to see her without the girls.

                                              ^^^^ She's soooooooooo gorgeous *loves her even more*

                                              And I'm SO excited for this! OMG I can't wait to hear it!!

                                              Popjustice makes the song sound so exciting, I hope it's not a disappointment after reading that.

                                                That's not her surely is it!
                                                She looks so different from how she looks in X-Factor and other places. :-?
                                                It's a gorgeous promo shot non the less!

                                                  Argh, I can't take this any longer I NEED to hear the song/see the video.

                                                  I agree that it doesn't really look like Cheryl on first glance, but her photoshoots were supposedly really expensive so I think they are dolled up for perfection.

                                                  I've played the demo 80+ times on my iPod/iTunes.
