Jealous streak: Viewers get to see Cher Lloyd being a bad girl when her ex-boyfriend is dating a new flame in video Want U Back

She's made no secret of her desire to crack the American market.

And with the third single from her debut album Sticks + Stones entitled Want U Back, Cher Lloyd is hoping to achieve just that.

The video, released today, features a rap from former X Factor US contestant Astro, and follows Cher as she wreaks her revenge on an ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend.

The story kicks off with Cher reminiscing on her bed, demonstrating her characteristic cheek as she sings 'Hey, boy you never had much game, so I needed to upgrade'

She flicks through old photos as she muses over her old love, singing: 'Remember all the things that you and I did first And now you're doing them with her.'

And she can't hide her devilish grin when she throws the salty snack all over them as they sit in the cinema watching a film while geeking out with 3D glasses.

An envious Lloyd sings: 'Remember all the things that you and I did first? And now you’re doing them with her.

'Boy you can say anything you want, I don’t give a shh, no one else can have ya.'

The 18-year-old has been signed to X Factor judge L.A. Reid's label- so it is no wonder that the star producer's former hopeful Astro has teamed up with her.

The X Factor USA judge has helped talent such as Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Usher, and Kanye West become global stars in the past.

Cher told BBC Breakfast: 'I went over to America to do some more recording and stuff like that and now I'm signed to Epic with L.A. Reid.'

She said that the music mogul finds her 'funny' and 'outgoing.'

Lloyd scored a UK number one single with Swagger Jagger and reached number four with the help of Mike Posner on With Ur Love.

Cher is currently dating hairdresser Craig Monk, who will be hoping not to get on the wrong side of her if her actions in this video are to be believed.
