Sexy? Yes yes yes, actually.

Between working on a new album and making a return to the judges’ table on this upcoming season of X Factor UK, Cheryl “Chezza” Cole is quietly preparing for a glorious comeback in 2014.

But wait, there’s more: The Almighty Aloud diva’s about to break it down in a new campaign for L’Oréal Paris Feria Go Extreme called Go Louder.

According to Cosmopolitan UK, the advertisement sees the “Promise This” princess flaunting her newly dyed blonde locks “in a dance-off between her new loud hair colour and the volume of track ‘Pretty Girl’ by Stockholm Syndrome” (AMAZING SONG) due to air on April 21. (!)

And as you can tell above, she looks (drop dead) beautiful. From Cosmopolitan:

As you can tell from these behind-the-scenes snaps – the work of legendary fashion photographer Rankin for L’Oréal Paris Féria Go Extreme – it shows the star in an edgier light. Her all-black sports luxe look, tough accessories and powerful postures make for a fierce effect.

But we’re expecting some smiles. “The thing I love about being a blonde is that you feel that you can have more fun” Cheryl said, “there’s that famous quote, ‘blondes have more fun’ and I think they do!”

That “fierce effect” is all sorts of “Sexy! No, No No” Tangled Up Tour-meets-“Fight For This Love” BRIT Awards 2010 ferociousness — and I’m just barely handling the fact that we’re about to see Queen Cheryl bust a move again.

Roll on, April 21…and let the Chezza comeback begin!
