New Video: Cher Lloyd – ‘Want U Back’ (US Version)

Published: Tuesday 1st May 2012 by Sam

It seems like it’s open season for Brit acts trying to break the US these days. For, following in the foot-steps of One Direction, The Wanted, and Emeli Sande, Cher Lloyd is the latest UK star attempting to realise the sought-after “American Dream”.

Having inked a lucrative Stateside deal with LA Reid‘s Epic Records, the 18 year old today lifted the lid on the video for her debut US single ‘Want U Back’.

Released as her third single back at home in February, the American audience are treated to an entirely new video. Check it out after the jump…

Solid. Whether it’ll help Ms. Lloyd break the seemingly “unbreakable” will be interesting to see.

In the meanwhile, peep her performance of the cut on That Grape Juice’s The Splash!

    Sorry, i disagree. As well as the annoying voice and facial expressions the other video was way more interesting than this. I also think that Ur Love would have been a better song to start with.

    It’s really weird they’re launching her in the US with a song that flopped in the UK (where she already had a massive audience because of The X Factor.) The song sounds a little better now though, did they tweak the production or is it just the power of a better video? Saying that, the video might be better but she would have been wise to lose the unbelievably annoying wide-eyed facial expression. Or at LEAST to have cut it down significantly.
    On the X Factor she showed some potential as a dancer as well, it’s weird that they didn’t utilize this a bit.
    Overall though she has been handled SO badly. To look at her X Factor audition then to look at her now is actually quite depressing. Shame on her and everyone involved with this unsatisfying campaign.

    This video is worse than the UK one, you have got to stop pulling those ugly faces Cher! This song was a total flop in the UK, what on earth makes them think it will crack the US for her? She is a below average singer with below average songs, the acoustic shows how poor a singer she really is. Syco have made her into a caricature of herself – and she has let them. We have really got to stop celebrating mediocrity in the UK, how on earth could this girl get a record contract when there are so many GOOD singers around with better images, oh yeah and no face pulling ;o)
