"All Night Long" is a song performed by British singer Alexandra Burke taken from her debut studio album, Overcome (2009). The song was written and produced by production team, The Runaways (Rico Love, Jim Jonsin, Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello).[1] The single was remixed to feature rapper Pitbull and released as the album's fourth official single in 2010.

Background[edit]

For its release as the singer's third single from the album, it was remixed with new instruments and it now features vocals from Miami rapper Pitbull.[2] "All Night Long" also serves as the album's second European single.[3][4] The song was nominated for BRIT Award for Best British Single.[5]

Music video[edit]

According to a spread in Look magazine was shot in a Hertfordshire mansion in the UK. The video follows the theme of a pool-side party and amongst the back-up dancers it features circus performers as well as appearances from Pitbull who is featured on the single remix. In one scene Burke is seen with "a mohawk, bejewelled eye-lids and long legs in a leather jock-strap".[6] According to the Daily Mail she asked family and friends to help film the clip using 100 pocket video cameras.[7] The video was directed by Dale Resteghini aka RAGE and premiered on 27 April 2010 through Vevo.[8] Australian TV channel Channel 7 created a new music video for the song which used excerpts from the actual music video and some new parts from Australian dance troupe and winner of Season 4 of Australia's Got Talent, Justice Crew.

Live performances[edit]

Burke performed the new version (minus Pitbull's vocals) on the semi-final of Dancing on Ice on ITV1 on 21 March 2010.[9] and the National Lottery on 5 May 2010. She also performed on Hey Hey It's Saturday, an Australian television show, on 3 June 2010 to promote the single, and the release of the album there.

Reception[edit]

Robert Copsey from the entertainment website Digital Spy gave to the song 4 stars (out of 5) and says that: "Fortunately, the track - much like the video - is the very definition of a summer party stomper. Reswizzled with extra blips and beats from the album version, you'll barely have time to knock back your G&T before the urge to hit the dancefloor kicks in, largely thanks to a chorus that doesn't so much encourage you to raise your arms in the air as command it.".[10] "Fraser McAlpine" from BBC gave the song 5 stars (out of 5), saying that: "well it's just a brilliant song. It's sung brilliantly, with brilliant barking-angel harmonies and brilliant rumble-tum verses and brilliant cloudbustingly euphoric choruses. Alexandra sounds every inch the disco diva - by which I mean she sounds torn apart by the wonder of the emotions she is experiencing, even though lyrically, those emotions amount to nothing more than a simple description of meeting someone you fancy at a party.[11] That Grape Juice said that "I'm still waiting to hear that 'mind-blowing' track I just know Ms. Burke has in her to deliver." and BBC Newsround said that "Her voice is earthy and gravelly, and really cool on this single."
