New Song: Cheryl Cole, ‘Call My Name’

Y'know Cheryl Cole? Of course you do! She was one-fifth of Girls Aloud, the most amazing girl group in British pop history (an objective fact), before she launched a major solo career with big names like on production duty and served as a judge on the British version of "The X Factor." Now set to release her third studio album, A Million Lights, she's dropped her Calvin Harris-produced first single, "Call My Name," and it's like Rihanna's "We Found Love." ON STEROIDS.

Listen to Cheryl Cole's "Call My Name" after the jump.

Glistening minimalist house production and big synths set the stage for Cheryl's vocal refrain: "How'd you think I feel when you call my name? You got me confused by the way I change!" What does that mean? We have no idea, but we love it, especially when she yells out, "Say my name, baby!" There's clearly a lesson here: Every time you see Cheryl Cole out and about, just scream "CHERYL!" at her and see what happens. It's obvious that she loves it.

Given that a big Calvin Harris dance track is pretty much the surest way to a No.1 hit these days, could this be the track that poises Cheryl for Stateside stardom? Prepare to find "Call My Name" blowing out the speakers in a hopeless place... like your local discotheque. (Do those still exist?)
