Cheryl Cole has reportedly re-recorded a duet with Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am that was originally sung by X Factor reject Cher Lloyd. Who’s Swagger Jagging now?
The track was intended for Cher’s début album but was pulled by Will.i.am after Cheryl was ditched by Simon Cowell as a judge on The X Factor.
Cher’s album is being released on Cowell’s Syco label and the 18-year-old star said she is not bothered about the track being dropped claiming that ‘It wasn’t meant to be’.
A source close to Cheryl Cole said
Cheryl loved the song from the start and didn’t think twice about recording a version after she was sure it would not be appearing on Cher’s album. There is no love lost between the two so she couldn’t care less what anyone has to say about her being offered the song. It’s a great track, so much so that it is being considered as the lead single from Cheryl’s third album.
Cher Lloyd has been called the Primark version of Cheryl Cole amongst other things and she’s also been accused of stealing Cheryl’s style in the past. But it looks as if the tables have turned now with Chezza also working with producer RedOne, who worked on Cher’s forthcoming album.
What next? Will Cheryl shave off half her hair? In even better news Cher Lloyds Swagger Jagger is is on course to top the charts this weekend despite all the slating it’s recieved.
Who’s laughing now eh?
Was Cheryl wrong for stealing Cher’s track? Share your thoughts.
