Cher Llloyd spent her 18th birthday yesterday throwing an album listening party for her fans in a south London studio.

The X Factor reject wore a black mini-dress, Louboutin stilettos and tailored black jacket, showing the world that she is a little girl no more.

Lloyd’s new album features tracks with Tinchy Stryder, Mike Poisner, Busta Rhymes, Dot Rotten and Ghetts so it can’t be all that bad. Speaking about the album the Swagger Jagger singer said

Are you as excited as we are over Cher Llloyd’s new album? Ahem.
