As Cheryl Cole struggles to keep her latest album in the UK top twenty, the artist she mentored during her time on the X Factor, Cher Lloyd, is blowing up the Billboard charts in America.
Cher’s super-catchy new single “Want U Back” (not featuring Astro) climbed to No. 27 on the Hot 100 this week. It’s also currently sitting pretty at No. 5 on the US iTunes chart, and it’s garnering increasing radio play as it zooms up the official Top 40 airplay charts, which should result in a major jump on next week’s Hot 100.
Cher is set to promote the mega-smash with her first US TV performance when she takes the stage on America’s Got Talent later this month.
