This Week in Music: Cher Lloyd’s “I Wish” Music Video ft. T.I.

British singer Cher Lloyd premiered the music video for her song “I Wish” ft. T.I. today, September 24th.

This song is definitely an upgrade from her 2012 hit “Want U Back.” After listening to that song on the radio too many times, her grunting gets a bit irritating.

The critics say that Cher Lloyd’s “I Wish” is the female version of the 1995 Skee-Lo song of the same name.

I love it.

The song has a very jazzy, upbeat feel with its trumpet melody and fast bass drum tempo. I love how the trumpets are distorted for the outro, as Cher laughs.

Cher Lloyd looks gorgeous in the music video. She plays a waitress at a lounge bar who lusts after T.I., a player who arrives with a group of women falling all over him.

In the song, Cher wishes to be like these girls so that T.I. would notice her. She sings:

I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash’
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
I wish I woke up with a butt and a rack’
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

And no, Cher did not kiss T.I. in this music video.

I love the parts where Cher tries to give herself bigger boobs. The first occurs in the kitchen, where she places two golden peppers over her chest.

The second time, she’s in the ladies room trying to stuff toilet paper in her bra.

Classy.

After her shift is over, Cher dons a gold glitter jacket and heels. She walks out of the lounge looking sexier than ever, and T.I.’s eyes follow her.

Of course all of his lady friends are jealous and thoroughly confused.

The dancers in the parking lot scenes were fun to watch. I do wish that Cher could have showed off some of her dance moves in this video.

My only complaint about this music video is the way the scenes skipped by so quickly. None of the scenes last more than 3-5 seconds. It was kind of jarring.

Overall, though, it was fun to watch.

Enjoy the music video!
