For months now, Cheryl Cole has said she wants to break into America, but she’s not pursued it due to a fear of failing across the pond, but today, that’s all set to change as Cheryl has reportedly signed a US record deal which will see her new album, 3 Words released in the States.
The album, which is currently at the top of the charts in the UK, is expected to be released through Interscope Records in the first quarter of 2010.
According to News of The World, Cheryl will release 3 Words as the debut single in America. “The Interscope deal is huge for Cheryl, especially as Girls Aloud have never released a single there,” says a ‘source’ for the newspaper.
And Interscope isn’t just a small label either, its directly owned by Universal Music Group, and is home to acts such as Black Eyed Peas, Lady GaGa, Pussycat Dolls and Enrique Iglesias.
Cheryl Cole’s Fight For This Love became the fastest-selling single of the year in the UK after selling over 290,000 copies in its first week.
