Cheryl Cole’s been hard at work touring and filming the X Factor, and has even had a bout of malaria to contend with, but somehow, she’s still found the time to record a catchy new track. And now we’ve got our hands on a sneak peak of the sizzling Promise This video.
Not content with two or even three looks, Cheryl manages to fit in a whopping five costume changes during the three-and-a-half-minute video, smoldering in a series of racy dresses.
The X Factor songstress starts the shoot in a darkened room, where a tall handsome stranger sweeps her off her feet, before donning a racy, Madonna-esq tuxedo for a dramatic dance routine.

Cut to the next scene and Cheryl’s playing ballerina, pirouetting around a moody forest with a muscley dance partner in tow, in a flowing, fairy tale dress.
Mrs C also dons a scene-stealing red flamenco dress and flowing white gown before the song is out, heading up a team of dancers to a backdrop of moody skies.
The arty video – shot just three weeks ago, during her trip to LA – was overseen by director-to-the-stars Sophie Muller, who has worked with Beyonce, Gwen Stefani in the past.
‘Cheryl is naturally athletic and has a dancer background so she found the shoot really enjoyable,’ a source told the Mirror of Mrs C’s latest video.
'Sophie is a huge name stateside and has worked with artists including Gwen Stefani and Beyonce, so the whole production is extremely slick. Cheryl looks incredible in it.'

Promise This is the first single from Cheryl’s upcoming album, Messy Little Raindrops.
Her second single - titled The Flood, and described by X Factor magazine as 'an enormo-ballad ...a massive, strong-laden, Christmassy tear-jerker about wreckage, drowning and natural disaster love' – will hit stores later this year.
