X Factor's Tulisa films music video for her debut solo single 'We Are You'

Tulisa Contostavlos (X Factor)

X Factor Tulisa Contostavlos has seemingly been on a constant holiday since last year's show finished, finally getting down to some actual work this weekend as she filmed her first ever music video.

The N-Dubz star has gone solo, and spent today continuing to relax on a Miami beach in a fitting swimsuit as she filmed the promo for her first ever single "We Are You".

The track, to be released later this spring, will be the first to be taken from the singer's currently untitled debut solo album.

Tulisa has spent nearly two months in the states finishing off the album, working with producers who have been behind some of 2011's biggest hits, including Rihanna and Katy Perry's song writers.

But in a somewhat awkward twist, We Are You was actually produced by Tulisa's ex boyfriend and N-Dubz bandmate Richard ‘Fazer’ Rawson.

The 23-year-old had planned to release music last year, but said she didn't want her songs to be dependent on the X Factor, and refused the opportunity to perform live on the show.

However with the star expected back on the panel this year, we'd be surprised if Tulisa can say no again in the autumn!
