Fake - Alexander O'Neal

'Can I get some nasty bass?', asks Alexander O'Neal at the beginning of this track, an obvious reference to Janet Jackson's Nasty, a big hit for producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis a year earlier. Released in 1987, 'Fake' was Alexander O'Neal's first big hit worldwide, followed by Criticize. Both singles were taken from his album 'Hearsay', which was his most successful album, the only one to chart in many countries around the world.

His career continues to the present day. He is not only successful as a singer, but also appeared in various television programmes, most remarkably in The Weakest Link and Celebrity Big Brother in the UK.
