Jam of the Week: "Sirens" by Cher Lloyd

Chery Lloyd is back, bitches!

For those of you who don't know who Cher Lloyd is, flop a little harder. Then join the rest of the pop-literate world and understand that she was a runner up on the British version of The X Factor. (PS being a runner up is waaaay better than winning; case in point: One Direction.)

She made a splash two summers ago with "Want U Back", which you may remember as the song in which she grunts after every line. Well, she's used the time since that song's release to mature and cultivate a refreshingly more adult, but still super fun sound.

Enter "Sirens", a lovely ballad about a taxing love. It's rumored to be about her father. Kind of a downer, but beautiful nonetheless!

While both Want U Back and the Oath will always hold special places in my heart - mainly because they are deep-rooted into our friendship - I must say Sirens is probably the best Cher Lloyd song based on the actual music. Way to step it up Cher! Can't wait to see what she comes out with next.
