Rapper sees potential in Girls Aloud star
The rapper is convinced The X Factor judge, 26, will go down well in the States.
‘I keep a close eye on the music industry throughout the world and I know how hot Cheryl is in the UK,’ says Jay-Z.
‘The US market is the toughest one to break into, but once you do it is by far the most lucrative. I think Cheryl has that talent to do it.
‘There is nobody in the US like her right now, and I would be very interested in helping her break the US market this year.’
Jay-Z, 40, says his wife Beyoncé Knowles, 28, is also a big fan of Chezza.
‘Bey has seen her perform and she told me how impressed she was,’ he tells The Sun.
‘I checked her out and I was impressed as well.’
