New Video: Cheryl Cole – ‘Ghetto Baby (Written By Lana Del Rey)’

Published: Tuesday 25th Dec 2012 by David

Cheryl Cole turns up the heat in her new video ‘Ghetto Baby’, unveiled this morning by ‘Hunger TV‘ this morning.

In support of the Lana Del Rey penned jam, the video- though not the ‘event’ we were hoping for- does make for an interesting watch but is unfortunately…a little forgettable.

Unfortunate, considering the song and its supporting album could have benefited from a grander video.

Check it out below…

For every GaGa, there must be a Laurieann.

Sure, though the clip isn’t horrible, it does stress Cheryl’s need for an in house Creative, tasked with making the most out songs that really deserve better. For in keeping it real, Ms. Cole’s released L’Oreal commercials better than this, when her status as the UK’s leading Pop Princess should see her churning out videos worthy of her budget and deserved popularity.

      • honeychildplease December 25, 2012

        HOney child merry Christmas, but this song is just off!!! The lyrics are hella weak, and her voice is all wrong for this track…It sounds like Nicole schreneger (however you spell that mess of a name) on a beyonce ghetto anthem track….HOT ASS MESS boo boo. it seems way too forced! enjoy the holidays hun…

  3. Monstarebel December 25, 2012

    uh WTF is a ghetto baby?? Blue ivy??

    Anyways the song is hot I personally love it…the video is ok I guess…she’s just so f****** gorgeous tho…Hope she becomes big in the US so I can see her more often xoxo

    • Teenage Dream (Beyonce’s Weave) December 25, 2012

      Me too, I wish she was huge in the US. She has everything it takes to be huge in the US.

  4. Alex December 25, 2012

    What an extremely poorly crafted video. Hence the fact that the lyrics to the song are resoundingly underwritten, this video just makes Cheryl look like an artist that has just released their debut single with a visual that has a $10 budget. The album itself has so much more potential. Fans would be more appreciative if ‘S*** Den A Mutha’ or ‘Girl In The Mirror’ had single treatment.

    • MONSTER-HIVE December 25, 2012

      U Must be obsessed with Beyoncé… Anyways, Buy UNAPOLOGETIC This is an emergency 😆

      • honeychildplease December 25, 2012

        The only emergency there will ever be for that alien forehead b**** is a dude going raw dog in that cochie!! Now rest!!

  7. Teenage Dream (Beyonce’s Weave) December 25, 2012

    OMG Cheryl Cole (The Queen of EU) has slayed my f****** life. It is too early for this slayage, I’m crying…

    This is f****** amazing, Cheryl Cole is just f****** gorgeous, I wish she had better taste in men but f*** she is a bloody Goddess. She is just stunning, classy and a rare beauty. I JUST LOVE HER.

    • Peter G December 25, 2012

      Queen of EU…Beyoncé Weave your funny, but get your head checked.

    So the Black Madonna is Floping in the Us ? Right ? 😆

      someone’s been reading the guardian!

    Sam after watching the Janet video I couldn’t agree anymore than I already did.

    After watching the Janet video Cheza’s looked cheaper than a packet of fries from tesco value Tulisas fridge!

  10. Merry Christmas B******!!!!! December 25, 2012

    The problem apart from the song being rubbish is it sounds like a Lana Del Ray song to the point that she sounds like she’s doing a cover… badly!
    Cheryl brought nothing new to the demo of this song apart from flat emotionless vocals.
    The video is clearly just to show off her man, but it also shows the fact that she is a sup par dancer with lots of camera shots giving okay visuals.

    Please Ms Burke come and snatch of this Loreal endorsed wig with songs, vocals and real executed dance moves…… Please.

    • Merry Christmas B******!!!!! December 25, 2012

      Oh, thanks for the Janet clip to flush the Cheryl crap from my eyes.

  11. Jeff December 25, 2012

    I agree. People can re arrow all they want.

  12. mildred beaver December 25, 2012

    I think the video is great . She excuted the video well. Tre and cheryl is perfect match for one another. I dont think she should be compare to beyonce because they are different individual. Cheryl deserve happiness and wish that her all of the happiness in the world, please cut her some slack. Cheryl dont worry about all of the haters out the. Why dont you all grow up, nothijhnjiiiiihihihihii

    • Jeff December 25, 2012

      Question. Why does she deserve to be happy more than anyone else? And why in 2012 are people still calling other people haters for having an opinion thats different from theirs?

  13. Lolax December 25, 2012

    Luv this song but Mechanics of the heart is better

  14. skintightjeans December 25, 2012

    Cheryl know she like that black wang. That’s ok girl…I do too.

  15. Hilly December 25, 2012

    I like the song , but I don’t know what the hell is a ghetto baby, the title sucks.
    The choreography is cool but the video is freaking cheap, maybe it’s the editing. she’s gorgeous though.

  16. Peter G December 25, 2012

    This girl loves her black sausage.

  17. Merry Christmas from Kelsnetwork December 25, 2012

    This video even looks cheaper than rita ora ‘s radioactive…… seems like everyone is copying kelly rowland ‘s shirtless male dancers move…

  18. lola December 27, 2012

    Lana Del Rey did a horrible job writing or help writing this track. I’m still trying to figure out why the hell she is praised by so many with her boring ass. Cheryl is so beautiful and has a nice figure, but her music sucks ass. WTF is a ghetto baby? LMFAO!
