Single of the Day: Cher Lloyd feat. T.I. – I Wish 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Karir Cher Lloyd sedang menanjak. Setelah merilis albumnya di Amerika dan tergolong sukses, ia siap untuk menggelar tur sekaligus mempersiapkan album studio keduanya. Dalam turnya ini ia akan berkeliling bersama girlband Fifth Harmony, dan gelaran tur itu ternyata sesuai dengan judul single terbarunya ini, ‘I Wish‘. Ditulis oleh Shellback dan Savan Kotecha, sudah bisa dipastikan kalau ini adalah karya yang current. But, there’s a glimpse of yesterday. Ketika sepoi-sepoi sahut-menyahut “ooh… ooh…” terdengar, yang terbayang di pikiran adalah ‘Dilemma’ Nelly dan Kelly Rowland. Kesimpulan saya sih, ‘Dilemma’ yang terlalu legendaris untuk dilupakan sehingga ketika ada karya setelahnya yang memakai logat menyerupai, maka penyandingan pun terbuat.

Saat Hip Hop berimbas pada pop, keberadaan rapper menjadi sangat sakral. Disini, Cher dibantu oleh T.I. untuk menyelenggarakan peraduan tersebut. Sementara, style dance elektronik melengkapi untuk memberikan beat yang tepat. Voila, ‘I Wish’ sebenarnya bukan kejutan besar. Mendengarkannya, seperti gaya yang lebih funky dan uptempo dari single sebelumnya, ‘Oath’. Yang tak hilang dari Cher adalah setiap lagunya memiliki senyawa bernama youth, yang membuat pendengar bisa terikat dalam daya tarik tersebut.

Citra sassy yang Cher punya terpancar sempurna dari lirik yang terangkai. Kata-kata yang ambisius ia bawakan dengan pelafalan yang cocok, membuat alur cerita jadi believeable. Apa yang ku inginkan, harus ku dapatkan. Itulah kisah disini. Bukan seperti fairytale yang muncul persis seperti apa yang diinginkan, Cher malah ingin ini dan itu supaya dapat menggaet pria idamannya. Sesulit apakah? Well, begitu banyak yang ia harap untuk dimiliki sehingga bisa mendapatkan orang yang ia incar. Lihat nih:
I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
‘Cause if I want you, I hotta have that”

Ini baru separuh dari chorus, maka kalikan dua untuk mendapatkan jumlah yang pas dari pengharapan Cher dalam lagu ini. Tapi di luar itu, harapannya begitu besar supaya lagu ini diterima oleh para pendengar demi kelangsungan karir musiknya. Pasti.

LYRIC
[Intro:]
Ey, ha ha, make a wish girl
You deserve it
Uh-huh, ha, ha, yeah

[Verse 1: Cher Lloyd]
Baby, I seen the chick you’re with, wish that I never did
Freakin’ perfect and five foot ten, just wanna punch her lip
‘Cause I know I’ve been wasting time tryinna catch your eye
Yeah I know that I been so blind thinking that I’m your type

And now I’m at home, I’m all alone
‘Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my genie so he knows, yeah

[Chorus:]
I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt and a rack
‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

(Uh-huh, yeah)

[Verse 2: Cher Lloyd]
Baby, I’m gonna keep it real, boy you da one I want
I don’t own any five inch heels, just got my Nike’s on
Never thought I was insecure, boy look at what you done (what you done)
I don’t know what I studied for, clearly you like ’em dumb

And now I’m at home I’m all alone,
‘Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my genie so he knows, yeah

[Chorus:]
I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt and a rack
‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

[Verse 3: T.I.]
Hey, now don’t you wanna do some, baby,
With the roof gone, baby
Aston Martin look retarded like the coup gone crazy
I’m not sure what kinda fella you like
But I can give you paradise, have it however you like
I’m talking solitaire iced out, ring, watch, necklace
Ain’t no talking reckless, girl, I’m certified respected, girl
Yeah, you like to run your mouth, well you about to learn a lesson, girl
Yeah, you the one but I’ll replace you in a second, girl
And I ain’t even trying to see you naked, girl
Wait, there I go exaggerate
Clearly carried away
But what I’m saying you could true that
I wanna be wherever you at
So you wishing you could kiss me
Do you really wanna do that, eh?
Make a wish, girl

(Yeah)

[Chorus:]
I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash
‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
Wish I woke up with a butt and a rack
‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

I wish I was tall

‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)

I wish I had, I wish I had, I wish I had yeah yeah

‘Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
