Betty Boo – Get Me To The Weekend

Around 1990, Hey DJ/I Can’t Dance (To That Music You’re Playing) by The Beatmasters feat. Betty Boo, and the singer’s solo singles Doin’ The Do and Where Are You Baby? added a little colour and fun to the airwaves. They were all included on her debut album Boomania, which reached the Top 5 in her home country Great-Britain. Its 1992 follow-up Grrr! It’s Betty Boo failed to match this success (or even come close), and she left the spotlights.

In 2006, she briefly re-emerged as half of the duoΒ WigwamΒ withΒ Blur’s Alex James. However, after one self-titled single, the act disappeared. In the years after, she made a few guest appearances and composed songs forΒ Sophie Ellis-BextorΒ andΒ Paloma Faith, among others. But only now Betty Boo (born Alison Clarkson) releases her first solo music since 1992.

Just like her earlier output, Get Me To The Weekend is another perfect pop song, based around a universal sentiment. It might come just in time for a much-needed party season. Catchy as hell, the song is simply irresistible. Not in the least because of the recognizable sample from The Human League’s Love Action. Boo says about the track: β€œThe muse came back out of nowhere during lockdown and I have made the record I should have made when I was 25.”
