DJ Fresh has revealed that he was “gutted” that his song with Girls Aloud ‘On The Metro’ wasn’t released as a single.
The producer, who co-helmed the song with group member Nicola Roberts, admitted he was annoyed when he discovered it wouldn’t be serviced as a single.
“I’m really gutted it didn’t get released, it’s so annoying,” he told Digital Spy. “It’s basically one of those things that’s decided by people that sit in record label offices and determine what we’re all going to hear on the radio every day.
“Who is it that gives these guys the power? They’re not always right.”
He added: “I’m not dissing anyone in particular with that track, but it’s amazing that one or two people in a boardroom determine what’s going to be released and what isn’t.”
Asked if he would work on any of the Girls Aloud members’ solo projects, he said: “I’d love to work with any of the Girls Aloud girls solo. I didn’t meet Nadine, but I’d love to as the others were all really sweet.
“For me, Nicola felt like the most driving force from a writing point of view, so doing something with her would be great.”
‘On The Metro’ featured on Girls Aloud’s greatest hits album Ten. Meanwhile DJ Fresh releases his new single ‘Earthquake’ on August 18.
On Saturday night, VIVA aired the first showing of The Hits Tour. This was a professional recording of how it will look on the DVD.
Unfortunately, they cut out 2 songs, Call Me Maybe and Beautiful Cause You Love Me. Hopefully these performances will be included in the DVD when it is released (no date set yet).
Nicola tweeted before the showing that she had been helping with the editing!

Today marks the 10th Anniversary that Girls Aloud were first formed on Popstars The Rivals. Im so proud that the girls are still together after all this time, and have gone through so much, as you can see in the video above.
