The Music Unlimited service is excited to kick off our new monthly spotlight, On the Rise, featuring up-and-coming artists who are making huge waves. Our October pick, Cher Lloyd, is one such artist that has blown us away with her massive summer smash “Want U Back” and her debut album, Sticks & Stones, which hit the service last week. All this month you can enjoy her Cher Lloyd – Aritst Picks Channel which can be found in the premium channels section. Her list includes some awesome tracks, including Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake & Eve.
Cher Lloyd created a stir on the 7th season of the UK version of The X Factor, finishing in 4th place. The experience worked in her favor though, as she was later signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco Music label and performed alongside other contestants on the following tour in 2011. Lloyd later tapped Lady Gaga’s producer to work on her debut album, which was released in the UK and has now hit the US through LA Reid’s Epic Records. Her influences are diverse (which you can hear in her Artist Picks Channel) as are the guest performances on the album, including Mike Posner and Carolina Liar. She has sold over a million singles and is only getting started!
We will have a lot more about Cher in the next few days. Discover what all the buzz is about and hear why she’s “on the rise!”
