How has it been seven years since Cheryl launched her solo career with the massive hit single ‘Fight For This Love’?
I still remember listening to it and watching the music video for the first time like it was yesterday.
I remember vividly the first time I watched the video as it was only a few months after the death of my father and I remember the lyrics hitting home. (I just had to keep fighting)
To be honest I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Cheryl’s solo music as I wasn’t a huge fan of Girls Aloud (I liked them, but I wasn’t a massive Alouder) but since I had pretty much fallen in love with Cheryl during the 2008 series of The X Factor I was excited to hear her stuff.
Fast forward seven years and I am the proudest Soldier! Cheryl is without doubt my biggest inspiration and I am so proud of everything she has achieved since she released ‘Fight For This Love’. That song is truly iconic and the fact that it has sold over 1 million copies proves what an iconic pop song it really is.
But she is not only known for that one brilliant song, over these past seven years Cheryl has gone on to score a further four number 1 singles (making her the first female artist in UK history to do so) 2 number 1 albums and a sold out arena tour. Her solo career has been so successful it has over taken that of Girls Aloud’s (who are the biggest girl band of the 21st century)
I really couldn’t be prouder of her and I cannot wait for her fifth album to be released.
