"Stay Awake"

"Changed the Way You Kiss Me" is a song by British recording artist Example from his third studio album, Playing in the Shadows. It was released on 5 June 2011 as the album's lead single, after it had premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record In The World' on 24 March 2011. The trance influenced song was written by Example with Michael Woods, who also produced it.[1] The song marks Example's first number one single in the United Kingdom. It sold over 115,000 copies in its first week, and stayed at number one for two weeks.[2]


Critical reception

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy Blog gave the song a positive review stating:

In a chart climate dominated with emotional balladry from Adele one minute and thumping feel-good club-pop from LMFAO the next, an artist can be forgiven for feeling a little confused about where the current music scene is headed and thus how to create a bona-fide hit that will send them straight to the top. That said, Fulham-born Example may just have the answer with this trailer from his forthcoming LP. 4/5 stars.[3]

Music video

A music video to accompany the release of the single "Changed the Way You Kiss Me" was first released on Youtube on 21 April 2011. The video lasts 3 minutes and 15 seconds long.[2] The video contains real fans from the street and was filmed in the Ministry of Sound club in London.

Chart performance

"Changed the Way You Kiss Me" saw great success in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number-one of 11 June - the first of Example's releases to achieve this feat - and remained at the top for two weeks. The single made its chart debut in Ireland on 9 June 2011, when it entered at number 6. On its second week on the chart, the single climbed a single place to number 5. On its fifth week, it reached number 3; marking Example's highest charting single in the country. With sales of 115,046, the single also topped the dance chart and independent chart. The song also charted in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Finland, Ireland, New Zealand, Slovakia, Switzerland and Poland. This marks Example's most successful single to date.
