Multi-award winning, multi-platinum selling and much loved global superstar, ?Cheryl?? is back and at her best as she announces the release of her highly anticipated new single ‘?Love Made Me Do It??’ - her first release since signing to ?3Beat/Universal??, marking a triumphant return after a four year break from the spotlight.
‘?Love Made Me Do It??’ is irreverently insistent, perfect pop that is classic Cheryl with a defiant twist. ?“??It’s something that anyone who’s been in love will be able to relate to in some way or another,” ?? ? says Cheryl. “It’s catchy and it’s fun. It’s not about one specific person or relationship, it’s more about me being the lover of love that I am. I just love love!”
The new single reunites Cheryl with former Girls Aloud bandmate and friend ?Nicola Roberts??, who co-wrote the track with Cheryl alongside her ‘Only Human’ collaborators The Invisible Men. The track is Cheryl at her most playful: ?”Oh my god, I’m such a sucker, I fall in love with every fucker,” ?? and showcases where Cheryl is at in her life right now - ?“Love made me do it... and I’d do it again”
Cheryl is at the start of a new chapter: a new mum, a new label, a new single, a new direction, which has been a year in the making. She has grown significantly as an artist and writer between each release, taking more control over her sound than ever before – something that shines through on ‘?Love Made Me Do It’??. ?The single signifies a new era in Cheryl's creative zenith, representing the artist she is, right here and right now.
This time around, Cheryl has been able to make music free from the pressures and constraints of a record label. There’s been ?“no A&R, no legal, no head of label, no one” ? she explains.? “??I just made the music from a really pure place, music simply for the love of it. I thought, if I don’t know what I’m doing by now, then I don’t know what I’m doing in this industry.”
Pop star, philanthropist and TV personality - Cheryl’s 16 years in music, television and fashion has seen her achieve huge commercial success and she is far from slowing down - ‘?Love Made Me Do It’?? almost makes you forget how long she left us wanting more.
