Watch: Cher Lloyd ft Astro – Want U Back

The original album version of Cher Lloyd’s ‘Want U Back’ from Sticks + Stones was probably my favourite radio-pop tune of 2011, so I was delighted to hear it was getting a proper release as a single. It’s twenty million times better than that ‘Swagger Jagger’ nonsense (although that was a catchy tune). In order to appeal to the American market, the single features a guest rap from X Factor USA sensation Astro, who doesn’t add to much to the track, but he doesn’t take away from it’s brilliance either.

The single comes out Friday in the UK and Ireland. And they even left in the helicopter bit at the end!
