Cher Lloyd, 'Oath' (Feat. Becky G) -- New Song


Along with the American release of her debut album 'Sticks & Stones' Cher Lloyd has released her second U.S. single 'Oath.' 'Oath' was produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut and features young upcoming rapper Becky G.

Cher Lloyd is well known for her breakout hit single 'Want U Back.' This song contains the edge and emotion in Lloyd's voice that was featured in the first single, but takes it a step further with Karmin-like sing-rap verses, behind another catchy dance-pop beat. Becky G, who also helped write the song, provides her own strong vocal rapping on the track behind a synth-pop, upbeat rift. It is likely the song will be as radio-friendly as its predecessor. The track is one of the most positive songs on the album, as Lloyd sings about an 'oath' to a friend, who she'll always be there for. She says in the song, "You need a hand, and I'm right there besides you/you in the dark, I'll be the bright light to guide you."

The American version of 'Sticks & Stones' includes appearances by Busta Ryhmes and Carolina Liar. The album itself differs from the UK version, which was a top five record. You can check out the new single right now on AOL Radio's New Pop First.
