Cheryl says she may never release another album after first single flopped

Cheryl says she may never release another album after first single flopped

January 12, 2019

Reflecting on what went wrong, the 35-year-old star admitted that times have changed, and the days of going to the shops to buy an album are behind us.

Speaking to The Metro, the mother-of-one said that she missed the old days as she explained: "No one is buying an album.

"I'm making myself sound old now, but you'd go to HMV and buy album of the month and cherish it and play it over and over and over.

"But now you can play any song any time on your Spotify playlist, and I love that – but I miss the old: 'let's buy the album'."

The star added that she would only release an album if she has "a body of work" – but reassured fans that she won't stop writing or recording.

Cheryl continued: "I don't stop writing, I can still continue and release – that's the beauty of what's happening in the music industry, you can release what you want when you want."

Although she has no plans to release a full album, the former X Factor judge did tell the publication that she plans to "release enough music to be an album but not in one go, only single by single".

Cheryl launched her much anticipated return to the public eye last year, releasing her first single in almost four years, Love Made Me Do It, in November.

The track sold just 5,000 copies in its first week and was at number 48 by its second.

The star was also slammed when she performed the single live on The X Factor – with viewers panning her raunchy routine.

As well as questioning Cheryl's vocals, fans were confused when Cheryl licked her hand and writhed around the floor as part of her performance.

The brunette beauty hit back at the critics days later – insisting that she had watched the performance back and "loved it".
