Does Cher Lloyd Have What It Takes to Become a True Pop Princess?
- Birthday: July 28, 1993
- Birthplace: Worcestershire, England,
- Parents: Darren Lloyd and Dina Lloyd
- Net Worth: $3 million
- Label: Syco Music & Epic Records
She had substantial international success in 2011, and 2012 with the singles ‘Swagger Jagger’ and ‘Want U Back’. Both songs charted internationally garnering tons of radio airplay. Want U Back sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide but since then Lloyd has had a little trouble entering back on the radio garnering enough airtime. She’s currently signed to management with Simon Cowell and like most of the artist on Syco Music they got their start on Britain’s Got Talent on X Factor.
The former X Factor contestant was eliminated from the reality competition after placing fourth in 2010. After her stint on the show it was her sex appeal, edge and tough personality that helped her stand out in a mediocre pop world. Lloyd mixed Hip Hop, R&B and Alternative to create her signature pop sound helping her debut album “Sticks & Stones” peak in the top 10 in more than 5 countries including the States.
But since then she’s released her sophomore album “Sorry I’m Late”. The follow up to “Sticks & Stones” charted well at number 12 on Billboard 200 but sales were eerily lack luster. Despite mostly good reviews Cher Lloyd’s fans did not cop the album as fast as her debut. She recently went on a headlining tour in North America with Fifth Harmony opening up. The shows were completely sold out but not because of Lloyd but the Harmonizers who came out in droves to support Fifth Harmony. Almost 70% of ticket sales were made through Fifth Harmony’s official site FifthHarmonyOfficial.com. Is anyone still checking for Lloyd anymore?
So what does she have to do to get back on board? FANS PLEASE WEIGH IN and hopefully this will get enough traction and get the attention of LA Reid at Epic Records.
