Calling Weezy 'a genius,' the 'X Factor' alumna says her meeting with the Young Money rap mogul was 'amazing.'
Cher Lloyd is on the move to secure A-list collaborators for her upcoming debut album. Just recently, the outcast of "The X Factor" is spotted meeting Lil Wayne in a studio. She excitedly tweeted, "Had an amazin meet with lil wayne last night,the guys a genius!"
Days before, the 17-year-old singer was pictured having a lunch with RedOne, the same man who is responsible for some of Lady GaGa's hit singles. A few days prior, she also hooked up with will.i.am to lay down their duet track.
The Black Eyed Peas member has repeatedly praised Cher for having the talent to be the next big thing in music game after they performed together on the live stage of the "X Factor". He even wanted to sign her to his record label, but the one who won the bidding war reportedly was Jay-Z.
Cher Lloyd hasn't said anything about the record deal rumors. Newest report suggested the forthcoming album will be released later this year via Syco/Sony Music instead of Roc Nation/Sony Music as it was previously rumored.
