Cher Lloyd has talked about how the song Usher OMG is so important to her and because of songwriter Savan Kotecha‘s creative involvement during her X Factor days – as he apparently taught her how to make songs such as this all her own!
“The moment I met Savan [Kotecha] was quite strange for me. He stayed for me throughout the whole process on “The X Factor” in the U.K. and he helped me out with picking songs and with the arrangements of them. He asked me to do a cover of a song, so I chose “OMG” by Usher. And I tried to change it to adapt the song to make it sound like me, and it was a really great moment. He said he liked it because it sounded completely different. [Kotecha] will take a song and inspire me to change it, to make it different and original. He helped me along with the process of that competition and he went on to help me with many other things, and he still helps me today.”
That is so important that she makes her own styles and not copies anyone else!
