Cher Lloyd Signs to Jay-Z's Roc Nation?

Cher Lloyd, the finalist from UK’s singing competition The X Factor, is rumored to have signed with Jay-Z‘s record label Roc Nation.

Black Eyed Peas frontman performed with Cher on the show’s finals, and said he would sign her to his label. But no dice!

“Even though Cher didn’t do terrifically well in the X Factor finals, there’s been a hell of a lot of interest in her,” a source tells UK’s The Sun. “‘s backing only intensified the battle to get her signature. After weighing up the pros and cons, it was thought that the team at Roc Nation would be best placed to turn her dreams of stardom into a reality.”

DO YOU THINK Cher Lloyd really signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation?

    I personally HATE this wigga wanabe…. Im here in the UK and cringe big time when this clown refers to herself as a “Rapper”…

    She should stop bastardising the art form.

    What has she ever written? Her idea of rapping is to get on the mic and shout…. pull stupid ass faces and she thinks shes made it?

    When an artist of Eminems calibre struggled to make it (in the first instance) even with his jaw dropping rhyming skills multi syllables and structure in his arsenal. WHO THE HELL IS SHE TO THINK SHE HAS THE SKILLS TO MAKE IT AS A RAPPER?

    Give me a god damn break ….pleeeeeeeease. I just wish the record companies would just stay away from this crettin… She’s also supposed to have the mega tantrums and attitude to boot….

    I will leave you with this thought please youtube Ann Widdecombe, she is an old politician over here in the UK. She appeared in strictly come dancing….

    I say if Cher Lloyd is a rapper then Ann Widdecombe is a prima balarina!

  • sarah

    @Madhatter: please, pleaseeee don’t compare her with lauryn hill…just no, totally different level.
    But anyways, i lovedddd her singing voice, hated her rapping lol.

  • sarah

    alsoooo, loved her audition the best. she should have re-sung it in the final.

  • pradalicious


  • therocprince

    She’s dope! She definitely has the swag to do a blend of pop, and R&B music. Kind of like a more hip-hop version of JoJo.

  • Lisa

    cher is awesome

  • cf

    Cher is awesome…I loved every single song she sang on XFactor. I’m sure there was a race to sign her from top execs. I’m sure Simon are dying to. I think Cher would pick probably pick Jay Z though and he’d be the best choice. I can’t wait to hear more from her!

  • British

    She gave a good first audition – and no surprises Cheryl loved her – but she did pretty much nothing different throughout the whole series and that was the problem. She can sing, but no more than the average wannabe singer – when you compare her to properly talented people to have come out of the X Factor, she fails to make the cut.

    Oh and she needs to sort her eyebrows, facial expressions and general style. Horrendous.

  • rambo

    Do the contestants on x-factor not sign a year long contract so they can’t sign for another label until the year is up?

    Anyways that’s not important. What is important is she’s a horrible little creature. I would throw my sandwich maker at her face.. when it hot.

  • vanessa

    love her she is really unique

  • Julie

    Would be great!

  • kj

    hope this is for real!!!!!!!!

  • hdghg

    Love Cher and Cheryl..i hope this is true.

  • Lisa

    @amensister: CHERYL COLE IS AWESOME

  • Lisa

    @amensister: CHERYL COLE IS FABULOUS

  • No More

    @dondatta13 Um, I can’t imagine she would call herself a rapper. Jay-Z is looking for the next Rhianna. Rhianna is 22 and becoming old and decrepit and all. She meets the requirements: she is cute and she has “swag-’tude” in her blood.. She’s badass on those 4-inch pencil heels.Love her little pop at 1:48. A well placed pop is all you need nowadays.This is the only song by soulja boy on my ipod. Really random choice.

  • Karin

    Pfff, Cher AGAIN? How about giving the actual WINNER of X Factor some attention? Matt Cardle is his name and he’s an actual musician and a great down-to-earth good-looking guy, which is a LOT more than we can say from this Barbie girl (the make-up, those eye-brows, brrrrr)

  • dondatta13

    @NoMore …. I watched the show…. every week she refered to herself as a rapper…FACT, as did every article during and now after the show. Don’t believe me? Google her name and read …….

  • Olivia

    Stop getting so excited about this ‘news’

    She can’t sign for another label for a year after X Factor this is a known fact.

    This is just a PR stunt to try to increase her value.

    Don’t forget Lady Sovereign was signed to Def Jam for 2 years and ended up on Celebrity Big Brother.

    Now that CBB has ended Cher can only look forward to appearing on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.

    Whatever happened to reporting facts?

  • Why Hate ?

    She’s Actually Quite Good At Singing And Kind Of Rapping But With Jayz Help Im Sure She’ll Be Good.

  • lillie

    ohhh this made me laugh, big style.

    i was a huge fan of the x factor this year, and while sure this girl has talent. she dances around the stage while looking like a thunderbirds puppet. every backstage interview i saw was her so arrogant and big headed. it’s sad when there’s people from that show with actual talent and who can sing and because of simon and cheryl’s favouritism for this girl, they had to leave.

    and it is a known fact that she can’t sign a contract until after a year or something like that. unless she signs to syco, which doesn’t look like it’ll be happening seeing as simon has already signed one direction and rebecca ferguson.

    cher’s honestly, not that talented. i’ve got friends who sing on karaoke better than her, her performances were cringe-worthy at best and her rapping? she’s exactly like lady soverign, nothing new, nothing fresh and if jay-z does end up signing her, then i think it would be a total waste of his time.

    she’s nothing but a gypsy chav.

  • No More

    @dondatta13 Does she actually write rhymes? Ciara and Brandy rap as well, but luckily people advise them to keep it to a minimum. She’s cool though, she’s a shy corny little English girl, then when the music comes on she dominates the stage as a hood diva. People get a kick out of such transformations.
    Ciara 2005-2007
    Rhianna 2008-Now, (has beeen, hang it up, flat screen)
    Cheryl- Future

  • lalala

    she is a chav. if you’re from England. you know what i mean.

    Please do not make this girl a part of the music industry.

    She is awwffuuulllll hahah

  • Anon


    Please please put the tweezers down!

  • xMonica

    I don’t understand why some people are writing negative things about her.
    I think she’s very talented. She can sing, rap, dance and entertain. And she was really nice backstage! Ofcourse, she had her ups and downs, she’s only 17.
    I think Cher is amazing. Fan since the beginning!
