Official music video for the track Elephant by Alexandra Burke feat. Erick Morillo.
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke returns to dance provocatively around a warehouse in the video for her comeback single Elephant, which features renowned house DJ Eric Morillo. Alexandra is dressed to kill in a leather jacket, with black bra and incredibly tight hot pants! The 23-year-old seems to be enjoying herself as she parties with a group of friends. As the bass drops the party hits fever pitch, and Alexandra Burke and company jump into trolleys and let off many fire extinguishers. However the carnival atmosphere is more than dampened as Burke's metaphorical elephant enters the party. The true test of an X Factor winner's staying power is usually the success of their second album, so it's unsurprising that Alexandra Burke has waited this long to release the lead single for her new album. It features a 90s house style thumping chorus which comes fresh from DJ Erick Morillo’s decks. Alexandra Imelda Cecelia Ewen Burke was born on 25 August 1988.
