Cher Lloyd hits Hot 100 for first time

The track, which became her third UK hit as it peaked at 25 on the Official singles chart earlier this year, has entered the Hot 100 in 75th position. This follows its download sales rising week-on-week by 84% to 20,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan, taking its cumulative US total to nearly 100,000.

Lloyd's Billboard entry follows US chart success already achieved by two other former contestants from the ITV1 programme: One Direction and Rebecca Ferguson.

One Direction, who famously became the first ever British band to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 when Up All Night entered at one in March, remain in the US albums Top 10 with a 14th consecutive week. Up All Night holds at six this week, while they continue to have two tracks in the Hot 100: What Makes You Beautiful (down 5-6) and One Thing (up 54-47).

Rebecca Ferguson's US chart action began earlier this month when her first album Heaven debuted at 23 on the Billboard 200.
