It seems as though Cher Lloyd has put the haters behind her and decided to focus on her upcoming debut album. Speaking about the new record, currently slated for release in October, Cher promised fans of her music a "jukebox" of styles of music.

The X Factor star, who finished fourth on last year's show, told Music Week that her debut LP would contain a variety of music including ballads and uptempo dance tracks.

"My album is like a jukebox and I like to think I have a variety of music that will suit everyone," the 17-year-old told the industry magazine.

"There is a bit of pop, bit of rap, reggae and of course, the ballads. I didn’t want to make an album to suit a certain audience. I just want to share it with everyone," she added.


The youngster revealed she had teamed up with a number of stars for the album, saying: "I also collaborated with Busta Rhymes and Mike Posner on two of my tracks. I am a huge fan of both of their work so It was amazing that I got to work with them.

"It was so strange that I was in a studio with these big producers and they were working with me. I was so nervous at first. With RedOne I was just sitting there thinking, ‘is this actually happening?’ There were all these big dudes hanging around the studio which didn’t help the nerves either.

"But after 20 minutes they literally made me feel like part of the family. I knew I couldn’t be intimidated by them and wanted to show them what I’m made of too.”

Cher joked: "I think I did good for a 17-year-old girl from Malvern."

Cher releases her debut single 'Swagger Jagger' on July 31st.
