Pop sensation Cheryl has been working away in secret, creating new music that will certainly delight her loyal fanbase.
Her last single, Let You, was released in 2019, but it didn’t make the Top 40. Love Made Me Do It, her previous album, reached number 19.
However, two years after taking a step back from the public eye to focus on her young son, Bear, it’s believed that Chez has been grafting away in the recording studio with former bandmate, Nicola Roberts and producer Naughty Boy, who has worked with the likes of Beyoncé.
Addressing their recording sessions, Naughty Boy, whose real name is Shahid Khan, said: “Me, Cheryl and Nicola put a few songs together.
“They’re really incredible songs, but it depends when Cheryl is ready to release it.”
He went on to add: “You can’t force an album to be made.
“Cheryl is a real artist, she’s not one of those artists you can force.”
The Geordie star, 38, is currently preparing to take to the stage at Birmingham Pride this weekend following her successful appearance at London’s Mighty Hoopla earlier this month.
This will be the first public appearance by Girls Aloud since Sarah Harding’s tragic death.
Although Cheryl is still grieving her loss of her bandmate of nearly 20 years, sources tell Central Recorder that she will continue with her headline performance.
Speaking to Central Recorder, a source said: “Cheryl will still headline this weekend as planned, despite her heartbreak.
“She is devastated by Sarah’s passing but also knows the last thing Sarah would have wanted was for her to let down their fans.”
Cheryl performed at Hoopla less than 24 hours before the death of Sarah was announced, sending fans of the singer into a frenzy as she released two new tracks.
While they may have just been remixes of her debut solo single, Fight For This Love, and a fan favourite, Sexy Den A Mutha, this marked her return to the music industry.
It appears that Cheryl has been busy away from performing and making music, recording her own radio show for BBC Sounds titled You, Me & R&B.
During the show, she will reflect on the past four decades of her life and her love for the music genre as well as her love for artists such as Beyoncé and TLC.
Central Recorder reached out Cheryl’s representatives to get their comments.
