Fired Up is the debut solo album by Alesha Dixon, former member of the girl band Mis-Teeq. The debut album was originally planned for release on 6 November 2006 on Polydor Records, following the second single, but was then postponed indefinitely. The album has spawned two singles; the UK #14 hit "Lipstick" and the UK #45 "Knockdown". "Fired Up" was released only in Japan. It includes remixes of "Knockdown" and "Lipstick" that were featured on the UK single releases of "Lipstick" and "Knockdown" (the K Gee Heat remix of "Knockdown" was sampled in the video for "Knockdown"). For the Japanese release, the tracks were put in a new order, a new photoshoot was done, the 2 remixes of the singles were added and a track called "Voodoo" was included. It was released in Thailand as well.[1]

The album was available to import from HMV.com, copies of the Japanese version were available from large HMV stores in the UK. Dixon exclusively sold Fired Up in the UK as merchandise on her tour, The Alesha Show, supporting the album of the same name.[2]
