Alesha Dixon: Pop Music Is Back

Alesha Dixon has said that pop has overtaken indie as the dominant force in the music industry.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Dixon pointed to the success of pop acts such as Girls Aloud and Pink as an indication that the genre is in the middle of a resurgence.

"Around 2005, indie was dominating everything and radio stations weren't really supporting pop. Now it's had a huge surge again and it's become colourful with Girls Aloud, Pink and Adele," she said.

"It's a cycle. Things come around again so I wanted to write a pop record with broad strokes this time."
