You may be asking yourself why UK songstress Cheryl Cole has come to the defense of Chris Brown, and publicly declared that we should all forgive him for the whole Rihanna incident three years ago. But while you’re pondering that, Cole herself is questioning “why do I love you so much” on her new song “Love Killer”. (Not to be confused, mind you, with Joe Jonas‘ “Love Slayer”.)
“Baby, baby, you’re like the worst drug, but you’re a buzz killer / you’re a love killer, I’m in love with the love killer,” the singer laments atop squiggly synths, a squelching bass and a dubstep beat. Oh, Cheryl — life is so complex.
So far it’s not been confirmed whether or not “Love Killer” will appear on Cole’s upcoming album A Million Lights (out in the UK on June 18). Lead single “Call My Name”, which was produced by Calvin Harris, is due to hit iTunes a week before her third album drops.
As for the new song, we never really pictured Cheryl Cole as a dubstep kind of girl, but “Love Killer” comes packed with a catchy enough hook for her to pull it off.
