Cheryl - Call My Name (Single Review)

Capital FM were the lucky ones to première the comeback single from Cheryl Cole. Having formerly dropped her ex-husband Ashley Cole’s surname, she wants to now be known as Cheryl.

'Call My Name' is the first single to be taken from Cheryl‘s third studio album ‘A Million Lights‘. This single is the first piece of new material to be released since the Geordie singer’s last single ‘The
Flood‘ in January 2011. It is rumoured that Cheryl has been working with Lana Del Ray, Eminem, Will.i.am, Alex Da Kid and Jim Beanz.

The single aired on Friday morning (20th April) and fans immediately took to Twitter to congratulate the star. DJ Calvin Harris produced the track in what Cheryl‘s soldiers are calling their ‘summer anthem’ of 2012. If you have heard Cheryl‘s last two albums, then this single clearly indicates a different direction in music as a solo artist and as part of Girls Aloud.

Since being played on Capital FM, Cheryl‘s new single has received mixed reviews from critics, however her army of fans took to Twitter showing their support. The star herself tweeted: ‘I have butterflies’ before the song was aired. Fellow celebrities Rochelle from The Saturdays and Gary Barlow given their seal of approval for the track.

Personally I love the track and think it fits in perfectly with the current music being released at the moment. I think listeners may be shocked if they listen to the track and don’t release that it is Cheryl singing, as a lot of people are expecting her to stick to her pop roots from previous singles. This is a really good direction for Cheryl and will hopefully win her more fans.

This track shows just how far the nation's Princess has come from her debut solo single ‘Fight For This Life’. It has also shown how much Cheryl has grown musically. I certainly can’t wait to hear the album!

The video for the single is due for release on 2nd May 2012.
