London-bred beauty Eliza Doolittle is following her huge summer smash ‘Pack Up‘ with third single ‘Rollerblades‘.
The summary song doesn’t come out in the UK until the rather autumnal date of October 18th,bit backwards i know? but you can watch the video and pretend it’s still sunny outside or pray its sunny even? Your choice.
Strangely though, there’s not a pair of roller blades to be found in Eliza Doolittle’s newly premiered music video for “Rollerblades.” What we do see is the 22-year-old Londoner taking a leisurely bike ride through New York “as you do” whilst being haunted and reminded by a ghost of a past relationship.
You can check out the new video from Eliza below…I love this track ,it’s a lovely “summery” tune which shows off her soulful and versatile vocals. In fact im probably loving everything Eliza is putting out there right now , she has this feel good attitude to her songs , her songs always contain that lovely little freshness and fun nature! I’m sure Rollerblade could be a hit. I hope it is! Good luck to her..
‘Rollerblades’ is released as a single October 18.
‘Green Light’ is the London-based grime collective’s second track to reach the top of the UK charts, after their previous release ‘Good Times’ achieved the same feat back in April.
‘Love The Way You Lie’, meanwhile, remains at two for a second consecutive week, despite initially outselling Roll Deep in the midweek charts.
Last week’s number one, ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’ by Flo Rida and David Guetta, slides two spots to three, with another former chart-topper, Ne-Yo’s ‘Beautiful Monster’, right behind them at five.
The Saturdays, who were once on course to top the charts with ‘Missing You’, settle into the lower half of the top 10 this week after falling four places from three to seven.
Elsewhere in the chart, Chase & Status rack up the second-highest new entry of the week with ‘Let You Go’ landing at 11, while Inna’s ‘Amazing’ is another high-charting new arrival at 14.

It’s like Eliza Doolittle was born to make music that’s perfect for summer. With the weather turning a little nicer this upbeat number has been unleashed to the world, proving Doolittle’s worth as the happy-go-lucky artist who formally bought us ‘Skinny Jeans’. The number called “Pack Up” reached number 11 in the charts , which Eliza was happy with!
Check out this lil interview where Eliza talks about her debut album , what her plans for her summer and what she likes to do in her spare time!!!!
Hey… Eliza how are you today? I am super dooper thanks, how are you ?
Yes im good thankyou ; First of all.. your single “Pack Up” is currently out now and recieving rave reviews. Tell us a bit about the single? ; It’s about being carefree and trying not to worry about the smaller things in life that we doo worry about sometimes. Like what people think about us or making money. There are lots of horrible things happening in the world and I think most of us, me included forget that sometimes.
For those who arent familiar Describe Eliza Doolittle to them? ; Best thing to doo to find out more about me is listen to my music and check out my blog I suppose. – find it a weird thing to describe myself ! I’m the one with the curly hair !
Whats your expectations for the track?
I don’t have any expectations. I always hope for the best I can doo !Last i heard youre just outside the top 10..
Would you be happy with a top ten chart position?
Of course I would be ! That would be amazing !
Your album is also set for release soon? When is the album release date and could you give us a lil taster of what we can expect from the album… (its bound to be amazing)
Ah thank you ! It is out now !!! Am so happy ! I think ‘pack up’ and ‘skinny genes’, my singles, represent the album well as it is very summery. Lots of thoughtful and some hidden messages in my songs ..you have to hear it really !
You’re set to feature on several tours this summer… Are you excited for these tours?
Yes ! I’ve got lots of festivals coming up which I’m looking forward to like Secret Garden, V fest and Bestival. Also am supporting Paloma Faith in November so really looking forward to that. our guitarists are friends so am hoping for some jam sessions !
Who have been your major influences in your music?
I listen to a lot of different music and I like to think that it all influences me sub-consciously. I love Stevie Wonder to Jeff Buckley to Destiny’s Child to Radiohead to Steely Dan to Vampire Weekend to the Beach Boys …hopefully it’s all whirling round in my brain and influencing me someway !
What does Eliza herself like to do her in her spare time outside of music?
I love football, not so much playing it although I doo give it a go ! I’m a huge Arsenal fan. I also really love poker and I play with my friends. – love going out dancing and seeing live music. All sorts x
Finally whats your favourite song at the moment? Janelle Monae – Tightrope!!!
