I highly doubt there will be a proper video, b-side, remix, or physical release, let alone promotion. Hope I'm wrong though

Even though it was simple, the whole reason era had the same concept. Version of has the album and then the singles. I don't think is a bad thing, just not cohesive.

I love this perfomance although I hope She doesn't consider this like the official video ... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:






Does this means that Hold On is also a single on G/S/A? :confused:


Currently it is not. Not available on itunes germany and also not on amazon

I have to say, I'm really getting into this song. I find myself singing it randomly ~ it sort of gets stuck in my head.

Today on Itunes Spain I found that at the moment Alex Francis has two songs:

- Make believe (Released march 03th)
- Hold on (Released march 17th)

I dont understand why two songs and two weeks of difference

Does anybody hear something different (album and radio edit), apart from the opening being shorter and the ending silence shorter too?

I can't believe Alex is releasing his own single at the same time (near enough) as the duet. This release just seems like a favour to give Alex a bit of exposure. There isn't any love or commitment in the release. Every time a single comes out Melanie goes silent and posts videos of herself working out. She should consider doing and exercise dvd and get the attention for that instead

Why do we think Melanie C does this duets?

I don't think it's the Company pressuring her? I mean she's in her own label, right?

And we've seen her with the likes of Natalie Imbruglia the All Saints girls, etc... she could do a higher profile duet

Because that was the contract with Sony Music:

You promote Alex Francis
I release a special edition from your album

Say what?! :dizzy:

Alex is NOT signed to Sony. He is an indie artist.

Melanie has already explained how she got to know him. Watch the Version of Me EPK or The Nightly Show interview from last week.

Thanks!! I'll watch that interview

But then that confirms it... (haven't seen the interview yet)... if she met him and was interested in him, why she didn't try for a duet with someone a Little bigger?

Obviously it's just conjecture whatever we say...

Well, for me it's never gonna be a worse choice than Dear Life, which for me was one of the least interesting songs on VOM :puke:

I'm a pretty nice song to listen to, even for people who have never hear of her. I think it's good for radio.

how is it worse than Anymore?

Hold On cover is very minimalistic but it's still more than just a writing
All these new singles covers are really poor though – but I'm glad the album cover is really good.
I don't like the rest of the album artwork much but the cover and the most important.

If VOM could be described as anything it would be the sound of a dud firework failing to explode.

Such great potential and it just fizzled out. I don't really get it.

Arrangements are a different in some part. The beat is different. Radio edit has a constant beat from the first "Hold On" to end. You can hear it with Alex verse. The beat is not there on the album version (no beat at all)

I saw some (UK) people on facebook asking why her new single isn't on her new album........ which is a very good point - it isn't like they're all going to check and see it was on the German edition.

Bit of a mess really... :shrug:
