Cheryl Cole’s solo career has got off to a flying start.
And perhaps now hoping to emulate the success of superstars Mariah Carey and Beyonce Knowles, Cheryl has ditched her street dance gear for a gown fit for a diva along with suitably styled big hair.
In her debut solo video for Fight For This Love, Cheryl Cole tried to show a new, edgy fashion sense with her military chic.
But as she teams up with Black Eyed Peas rapper Will.I.Am for the atmospheric love song 3 Words, the X Factor judge is sporting a more feminine look.
The net result is, sorry to say it, very regal but a bit on the dull side.
In a sneak peek of the new video, Cheryl is seen looking wistfully into the distance in a slinky floor-length black dress with brown hair extensions cascading over her shoulders.
Hopefully, there is a bit more action in the rest of the video.
Although the title song from her number one album has already charted at No. 26 on downloads alone, the track will be officially released as a single on December 21 – meaning Cheryl could have the first number one of 2010.
3 Words tells the story of a couple who socialise separately and are both approached by members of the opposite sex.
Despite the other person showing a romantic interest in them, both Cheryl and Will.I.Am declare they are happily in love with their soulmate.
