Keri Hilson: "I Would Love To Write For Cher Lloyd"
EXCLUSIVE | Keri tells us she has a few ideas for The X Factor singer...
Lloyd famously performed Hilson's version of theSoulja Boy track, Turn My Swag On, at her audition for last year's The X Factor, leaving Keri heaping praise on the 17-year old, thanking her for making the song popular in the UK.
When we asked the Pretty Girl Rock singer about Cher, Hilson revealed: "I’ve never met Cher Lloyd but I attribute. I mean I thank her."
"I attribute the fact that Turn My Swag On, my version, charted here in the UK and other places in Europe actually because of the X Factor performance of my song."
The 28-year old R&B star continued: "She was like a sixteen year old (at the time of her audition) white girl, you know I was really, really, really flabbergasted over the fact that that was the song she chose to audition with. Great moment for her and for me as well. Thanks Cher Lloyd."
Keri also recalled the first moment she watched Lloyd's audition, explaining: "The first time I watched the video, I was in the studio and I kept getting tweets ‘Have you heard of Cher Lloyd? You should look at her cover of Turn My Swag On'."
"So I click on it and I was really, really, really surprised. She definitely had her own little sixteen year old swag going on. I was impressed."
The Knock You Down hitmaker then confessed that she can't wait to hear Cher's new material and hopes to pen a song for the XF star in the near future.
Keri admitted: "I’m very excited to hear her music. I really can’t imagine what her music would sound like. I would actually love to write for her though. I’ve got some ideas in my own head…"
