“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.
