3 Words…To Save My Life

Cheryl Cole’s upcoming second single, 3 Words, premiered this morning on Chris Moyles’ BBC Radio 1 show. As a Will.I.Am produced track it’s unexpectedly and surprisingly brilliant.

Dubbed by Cheryl herself as the best song on her upcoming debut, 3 Words is a melancholic, mid-tempo piece of dance pop with a bit of an edge to it. Slightly experimental but at the same time it’s easy to recognise that it comes from the same place as tracks on The Black Eyed Peas latest album The E.N.D., particularly I Gotta Feeling. It wouldn’t sound out of place sat next to the latter, Missing You and Meet Me Halfway but judging from the clips of Cheryl’s debut album, it could sound out of place on there.

3 Words has the potential to be a huge hit for Cheryl. If clubs take to it like I Gotta Feeling, a number one is definitely in the bag.
