Samsung teams up with X-Factor judge Tulisa

tulisa-contostavlos-makeup Samsung today announces an exclusive collaboration with Tulisa Contostavlos, giving Phones 4u customers the chance to film a music video at an exclusive shoot with the singer. Customers who buy a phone from Samsung’s Galaxy Family (Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy Note or Galaxy Nexus) from Phones 4u from Friday 27th January, can enter an exclusive competition and be in with a chance of winning a ticket to the shoot.

Fresh from her stint as the winning judge on last year’s X-Factor, Tulisa will be working outside of N-Dubz whilst releasing solo material this year. Samsung and Phones 4u are offering the chance to be part of it all by inviting one hundred competition winners to attend an exclusive shoot with a friend, where they will use their new Samsung Galaxy phones to film Tulisa performing. The content will then be used to create an alternative music video which will support the promotion and release of Tulisa’s new single.

As well as entry into the competition, Phones 4u customers will also receive exclusive preview content from Tulisa’s upcoming solo career, including video footage, photographs and wallpapers. The promotion will be supported in-store at Phones 4u throughout the country, with Tulisa set to make a personal appearance at the best performing store.
