Keri Hilson wants to write for Cher Lloyd

Keri Hilson has revealed that she would “love” to write a song for ‘X Factor’ star Cher Lloyd.

The teenage singer/rapper famously auditioned for ‘X Factor’ with Hilson’s version of Soulja Boy’s ‘ Turn My Swag On’, and Hilson thinks that Cher was responsible for the song becoming popular in the UK.

Speaking to MTV, Hilson said: "I attribute the fact that Turn My Swag On, my version, charted here in the UK and other places in Europe actually because of the 'X Factor' performance of my song."

The singer added "She was like a sixteen year old (at the time of her audition) white girl, you know I was really, really, really flabbergasted over the fact that that was the song she chose to audition with. Great moment for her and for me as well. Thanks Cher Lloyd."

Hilson also revealed that Cher could receive an even bigger thank-you in the form of a newly penned tune: "I’m very excited to hear her music,” she said. “I really can’t imagine what her music would sound like.  I would actually love to write for her though. I’ve got some ideas in my own head…"
