Now that she will be returning as a judge on The X Factor UK, Cheryl Cole is appropriately preparing the release of her fourth solo studio album, rumored to be titled Crystal Clear. Here we have the official lead single, “Crazy Stupid Love,” which premiered this morning (June 2) on BBC Radio 1. Produced by her “Fight For This Love” collaborator Wayne Wilkins, “Crazy Stupid Love” is a fun pop number packed with a stomping dance beat, a saxophone breakdown, and solid feature from Mister Tinie Tempah. Following Jason Derulo’s worldwide smash “Talk Dirty” and Ariana Grande‘s summer jam “Problem,” the sax break is evidently the popular thing to do at the moment, but unfortunately here, it just doesn’t do anything for the song – the sax sounds like it needs a nap. Usually I love anything Chezza pours out but “Crazy Stupid Love” is just lackluster. Here’s hoping the music video makes it better! What do you guys think?
Cheryl Cole will release her new single “Crazy Stupid Love” in the UK on July 20th!
