Cher Lloyd: The Next Carly Rae Jepsen?

by at . Comments

Cher Lloyd's new song "Want U Back" is drawing comparisons to Carly Rae Jepsen's smash hit "Call Me Maybe" with its infectiously bubbly beats.

While Cher, 19, is British, she and the Canadian Carly Rae both got their musical starts on reality shows (X Factor and Canadian Idol, respectively).

Carly Rae holds the #1 spot on the pop chart and has inspired more Call Me Maybe covers than we can count. Safe to say it's the song of the summer.

Cher's "Want U Back" is up to #12 and climbing, though. 

In order to boost its popularity, Lloyd will be releasing a bonus version with Snoop Dogg (sorry, Snoop Lion) on her new album Sticks + Stones.

What do you think of Cher Lloyd's track? Hit material?

MJ changed MUSIC proeid. People call him the King of Pop what do you think Pop stands for? POPULAR Music in other words, he changed music that is enjoyed by the majority of people the most POPULAR music. He shouldn't be tied down to one genre because so many artists of every genre can be inspired by him. I see Rock artists from Country artists from RnB to Soul to Rap artists every kind being inspired by him. I don't think there will ever be anyone like him again.
