If you were one of the cool kids at March's SXSW, you already know all about British sensation Cher Lloyd. For the rest of us, the introduction to the X Factor UK contestant, singer, and rapper is a recent pleasure.

Lloyd, who The New York Times called "the future," has already won over the UK with a No. 1 single, "Swagger Jagger," and a top five album, Sticks and Stones. Her first U.S. single, "Want U Back" is spicier than it is sweet, a pop song about relentlessly pursuing an ex. As for the rest of her music, Lloyd describes her sound to MC music guide Sergio Kletnoy as, "Someone just put a jukebox on. Every song is different. Nothing is the same." She goes on to confess her guilty pleasure, worst personality trait, and how an ABBA tribute shaped her life.
