Cher Lloyd's "Want U Back" Gets #deCODED

The Queen of Swag, aka X-Factor's Cher Lloyd, is slowly but surely heating up all over the globe. The funky-fresh 18-year-old singer's catchy single "Want U Back" has popped up on our Top 100 chart just begging to be #deCODED, so we decided to tackle the meaning of the tune for y'all:

Hey, boy you never had much game
So I needed to upgrade
So I went and walked away-way-way


Cher sings to her ex-boyfriend who just didn't measure up to her standards. She left him with hopes that she'd find somebody better.

Now I seen you been hanging out
With that other girl in town
Looking like a pair of clowns-clowns-clowns


Cher's ex is now dating "that other girl in town", which is presumably her enemy. She thinks that the pair look pretty hilarious together.

Remember all the things that you and I did first
And now you're doing them with her
Remember all the things that you and I did first
You got me got me like this


She begs her former boy to remember all of the things they did together as a couple, because now he's doing the same things with this new gal. It's driving Cher up the wall!

And now you're taking her to every restaurant
And everywhere we went, come on!
And now you're taking her to every restaurant
You got me got me like this


It's almost like he's replacing Cher with his new arm candy! What a jerk!

Boy you can say anything you wanna
I don't give a sh**, no one else can have you
I want you back, I want you back
Want want you, want you back


She doesn't care if he likes it or not: Cher's made up her mind that no one else can have him but her.

I broke it off thinking you'd be crying
Now I feel like sh** looking at you flying
I want you back, I want you back
Want want you, want you back


She hoped he'd be heartbroken after their breakup, but now she's the one that's upset while he carries on with his life. To put it plainly: she wants him back!

Please, this ain't even jealousy
She ain't got a thing on me
Tryna rock them ugly jeans-jeans-jeans


Cher makes it clear that she is NOT jealous of this new girl. She knows she's got killer style, unlike her replacement...

You clearly didn't think this through
If what I've been told is true
You'll be crawling back like boo-hoo-hoo


She's heard rumors that he think's he's made a mistake with his new fling, and will come crawling back to Cher in no time. Take that, new girl!

Oooh, oooh, I thought you'd still be mine
When I kissed you goodbye uh-oh uh-oh
Oooh, oooh, and you might be with her
But I still had you first uh-oh uh-oh


When Cher kissed him goodbye, she always thought she'd have him on the back-burner. The new gal in the picture might have shaken up her plans a little, but Cher knows that she had him first and they'll find a way back to each other.
