X Factor UK winner Matt Cardle and Spice Girl Melanie C sign Top 10 Single “Loving You” to Radikal Records (http://www.radikal.com). The track will be available on August 20th.
Matt Cardle first took the UK by storm in 2010 when he was crowned the winning contestant on Simon Cowell’s vocal competition show “X Factor.” One of a very elite group of male solo artists with a platinum-selling debut album, Cardle has sold over two million singles and albums combined, and has completed four sell-out UK tours in the past two years.
“Loving You” is the new single from Matt Cardle & Melanie C, co-produced by Cardle with Jamie Scott & Toby Smith (ex-Jamiroquai). The track features Cardle on guitar and drums and will be released world-wide on August 18th, with Radikal Records as the label for the US and Canada release date of August 20th.
Melanie C, better known as Sporty Spice to many, lends her gorgeous vocals to this very sexy duet. No stranger to collaboration, Melanie has been a feature artist on tracks with top artists such as Emma Bunton, TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Bryan Adams. For his song “Loving You,” Matt saw Melanie as a perfect musical partner.
“I met Melanie at the Isle of Wight Festival last year,” says Cardle. “I’m a big fan and I’ve always loved her voice. I had already started writing ‘Loving You,’ and I thought with a few changes it could work perfectly as a duet. I’m really thrilled with the song and I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
The steamy music video for “Loving You” has quickly gathered over half a million views on YouTube in just a few weeks, while the passionate interaction between Matt and Melanie on and off camera has be getting lots of tabloid and blog attention.
