Cher Lloyd Is ‘Activated’ on Chilled-Out New Single
A new era of Cher Lloyd music has officially been "Activated."
Today (July 21), the former X Factor UK contestant released her new single — her first since 2014 — on Rolling Stone. The track, called "Activated," serves as a noticeable lane shift from the feisty artist's previous swagged-out bubblegum style, and is miles removed from the bratty, glossy tween pop of her 2012 jealousy anthem, "Want U Back."
"When I do the damn thing just watch me / I'm charged up / I'm getting activated," Cher sings on the mid-tempo new single, a chilled out, hip hop-lite jam that contains a wobbly synth-line reminiscent of the one in the Ying Yang Twins' "Wait (The Whisper Song)." (Yeah, you know the one.)
Cher Lloyd is currently working on her third studio album.
