Alexandra Burke has hit out at her footballer ex Jermain Defoe in her new single Day Dreams.
The 25-year-old former X Factor winner had a whirlwind romance with the footballer last year but it ended in heartbreak after a tabloid kiss and tell revealed he had cheated on her.
Alexandra sings in the new track: "Millions of people and me, one. And I'm feeling I'm the last to know. Our private network - we built became a best seller show. What were you thinking at the time when you decided to sleep with her? It didn't stop there, this I know, 'cause the papers f***ing told me so."
The 25-year-old singer also reveals she drowned her sorrows after her split from the 30-year-old.
The lyrics include: "I cried and I'm not ashamed to say so. Drank every day, lost my best friend but I replaced you with Merlot."
Alexandra told The Daily Mirror: "Working on this new material has been really emotional.
"I've opened up lyrically more than ever and talked about things I never thought I would. But I always write from the heart."
