If there’s one thing Cher Lloyd has perfected since popping onto the music scene after appearing on The X Factor it’s creating catchy tunes that refuse to leave your head. No, we’re not complaining and we’re happy to report her latest single, “I Wish,” is no different.
Teaming with rapper T.I, “I Wish” is all about how sometimes — okay, a lot of the times — girls wish they had what other girls if only to catch the eye of their crush. From wanting to wake up with a “butt and a rack” to slapping on a pair of sneakers rather than getting all dolled-up, this song is an anthem for the everyday down-to-earth girl.
“I think a lot of girls struggle with body image or get pissed off because the prettier girl with everything gets the guy. You want all of the things you think that other girl has,” Cher recently said. “That’s not fair, and I think I should challenge that with the song….That’s what I really want my fans to connect with. I’ve always said, ‘If you can’t take me as I am, don’t take me at all because I will not change for anyone.’”
And this is how I feel about that entire quote:
Four for you, Cher Lloyd! You go, Cher Lloyd!
