“3 Words” is a song by British recording artist Cheryl Cole (of Girls Aloud). The song is both the opening and title song from debut studio album. It was released in the UK and Ireland on December 21, 2009 by Fascination Records and later in 2010 by Universal Music, sometimes serving as the lead single for 3 Words. The uptempo synth and dance music-inspired pop song was written by Cole and George Pajon. It was also written and produced by will.i.am who has guest vocals on the song. 3 Words was cited by Cole as her favourite song from the album for being different to what people expected.
Cole filmed two music videos for “3 Words”. The first music video was a viral version directed by Vincent Haycock, in the week beginning 19 October 2009 “on the only rainy night in Los Angeles in six months.” The second version was the official “split screener”, directed by Saam, that premiered on 27 November 2009. The overall goal of the video was described as “tell[ing] the story of a couple who socialise separately and are both approached by members of the opposite sex. Despite the other person showing a romantic interest in them”. The singers go on to declare each other is ‘the love of my life’ and ‘through the ups and the downs… never let go’.” The “edgy and arty” video features “a split screen, unconventional camera angles and modern dance.”
“3 Words” was recorded at Record Plant Studios, Los Angeles (CA)
