If we had all heard 'Dub On The Track' before 'Swagger Jagger', Cher Lloyd would probably not be quite as much of a laughing stock1.
It's still a bit on the posture-heavy, "I AM AMAZING HATERS BACK DOWN"
side of things — and that's a role Cher probably shouldn't be forced to
play out when the reality
is obviously so different — but it succeeds (where 'Swagger Jagger'
fails) because the chorus isn't a huge will-this-do atrocity that sounds like everyone just gave up.
Listen out for a surprise guest rap from Eoghan Quigg.
EDIT: This 'leak' has now been taken down so you will just have to imagine for yourself what a good Cher Lloyd song might sound like.
Usual disclaimers apply — if you don't like it you're a hater, if you're hating you're just jealous, if you're jealous that's because you're a hater, etc etc etc.
1 Yes we accept that she is principally a laughing stock to journalists, rofling Twitter onlookers and various other groups of people not really being targeted by this popmusicular campaign but you get the general idea.
