Call the Shots
"Call the Shots" is a song by British girl group Girls Aloud from their fourth studio album, Tangled Up. The song was written by Miranda Cooper, with inspiration from an article about the advance of women in business, and Brian Higgins, Tim Powell, Lisa Cowling, and Giselle Somerville also received songwriting credits. Originally intended to be released as a single for The Sound of Girls Aloud: The Greatest Hits, "Call the Shots" leaked online in September 2007, and was released as the second single from Tangled Up on 26 November 2007. Produced by Xenomania, the electropop and europop song showcases a more mature side from Girls Aloud, and received generally favourable reviews from music critics. In 2008, the song won the award for the Popjustice £20 Music Prize, an annual prize awarded by a panel of judges organised by music website Popjustice to the singer of the best British pop single of the past year. "Call the Shots" proved to be commercially successful upon its release, charting at number 3 on the UK Singles Chart, continuing the band's string of hits by becoming their sixteenth consecutive single to chart within the top ten, and being later certified Silver by the British Phonographic Industry. The song also peaked at number 9 on the Irish Singles Chart.
