Ever wondered what Cher Lloyd‘s new single would sound like without T.I.? Well, ponder no longer. The 20-year-old Brit has dropped a solo version of “I Wish” and it’s an unexpected treat. The rap-free edit definitely strips the song of its urban trappings but sounds less stilted and forced than the original.
After all, the X Factor alum is already one of the coolest pop star’s in the game and doesn’t require the services of an MC to increase her credibility. (Sorry T.I. but you know it’s true!) Listen to Cher’s perky solo version of “I Wish” after the jump.
Do you prefer “I Wish” with or without the rap? Tell us in the comments below.
