  1. Knockdown

    "Knockdown" is the second single from Alesha Dixon, from her debut album Fired Up. The single was commercially released on 30 October 2006, having been made available for legal download the previous week. The song was written by Alesha and the Kent-based production team, Xenomania. Knockdown is Dixon's lowest charting single to date, peaking at number forty-five in the UK Singles Charts, and spending just four weeks in the charts. As a result of the single's failure, Alesha was dropped from Polydor Records. However, Alesha was signed to Asylum Records, where she has achieved further success under a new label.
