“I Wish”showcases her inimitable swagger. She delivers an immediately unforgettable hook and a whole lot of sass over snappy funk guitars and a horn section asT.I.drops a scorching verse. At the same time,Lloydgets as clever as she does cheeky, weaving in a thoughtful message.

She says, “I think a lot of girls struggle with body image or get pissed off because the prettier girl with everything gets the guy. You want all of the things you think that other girl has. That’s not fair, and I think I should challenge that with the song. My favorite line of the song is, ‘I wish I woke up with a butt and a rack’. That’s exactly how I feel, and I think a lot of girls feel like that. That’s what I really want my fans to connect with. I’ve always said, ‘If you can’t take me as I am, don’t take me at all because I will not change for anyone’.”

With that audience in mind,Lloydhas launched the“Cher Grants 100 Wishes to Her Fans”campaign in tandem with the song release. Listeners can enter to win prizes through a genie-style app culled from the single art. Just visit her official Facebook page to make a wish! Five prizes will be granted each day over the course of 20 days. Each prize will be a surprise though, and winners won’t find out what they’ve won until they’re contacted. Potential prizes include a voicemail from the singer, autographed poster,$50Top Shop gift card, a pair of concert tickets, a pair of Nikes, and #CHERS100Wishes iPhone Cases.

“I Wish”is just the first taste of what’s to come on her hotly anticipated sophomore full-length and follow-up to 2012’sSticks + Stonesdue out later this year via Epic Records. The new collection sees her preserve the spunky, slick sound millions fell in love with, while getting a bit deeper and more intimate at the same time.
