ALEXANDRA Burke proves she’s still got star quality – in a bikini.
The Brit singer flaunted her eye-catching physique in a two-piece while holidaying in Miami.
She teamed her stringy beachwear with a headscarf and a smile as she basked in the warm Floridian waters.
The former X Factor champ was in chipper spirits throughout her day at the seaside, indulging her inner child as she played in the waves.
At one point she perched on a lounger and showed off what appeared to be wrist piercings.
Resting a hand on her knee, the singer clearly sported pink and blue studs that bore a resemblance to the stick-on accessories popular among young girls.
It’s little surprise to see Alexandra back in the States – last October she announced she was working on an album for a US release.
She also revealed her follow-up to last year’s Heartbreak On Hold would hit shelves in 2013.
The star said she wanted to go back to the sound of her debut collection Overcome and promised fans an album full of “R&B bangers”.
No doubt her desire to get back to her roots has something to do with Heartbreak On Hold’s poor performance in the charts.
It peaked at 18 upon release in June, less than three years after Overcome shot straight to No1.
