Nicole Scherzinger we found love Nicole Scherzinger: I Passed On Rihannas We Found Love

Rihanna may sing like a castrated cat, yet it’s hard to deny her hit-spotting ability. Indeed, it’s one of the few talents she has beyond patting her particulars off-beat. 

And while many of the star’s chart rivals are infinitely more gifted, it’s this one talent that the vast majority of them would give their right rib for. Case, point, Nicole Scherzinger.

In a surprising move, the former Pussycat Doll has revealed that she passed on one of RiRi’s biggest hits ‘We Found Love’. This, after previously turning down Lady GaGa’s ‘Just Dance’ and Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’.

The X Factor star’s rationale after the jump…

Speaking to Notion magazine, the 34 year old said:

“I passed on We Found Love. I’ve got the demo of that song and I was busy at the time. They’d sent me a few dance tracks and I wasn’t able to get to them and I was like, ‘Oh there’s so much dance and I want to take a break from it’.

That was my fault. I slept on it.”

***********

Factually speaking, “Brand Rihanna” leaves a lot to be desired; however, her hit list highlights how important it is to have (or at least) develop an ear for what will work for an artist.

At this point with Nicole, she’d be better off recording an album of songs she hates, as it’d probably be full of hits.

Make no mistake about it, her solo potential lies almost exclusively in being a “Pop star” rather than an “artist”. And with Pop stars requiring hits to stay relevant, it’s high time she wakes up from her slumber and starts nabbing some of her own.

According to Scherzinger, her new album is already finished – and has been since November. However, if it’s anything like ‘Boomerang’, we hope she kept those song receipts as we smell a return to the drawing board.

Believe it or not, we’re actually rooting for her, but just wish she’d root for herself more.

Your thoughts?

    That is what shut beyonce down. Rih’s ear for a hit! Rih can pooop and it will be a hit.
    Beyonce might as well just be a live touring act, cos she will never see the charts again. I heard during
    4 beyonce got NO pop airplay from the top US radios, add that to her failing the radio test
    and you can see why she has to RUN from Rih. She is using this tour as smoke screen. She has to re
    recoup to pepsi, and as she cannot sell, the only way is to tour. What wil happen when the tour raps
    ? The best thing beyonce can do after tour is do a stint in Vegas. Sadly I am not sure if the nightly
    demand for beyonce would be strong for her to do vegas. This is the music business. You gotta
    churn out hits. Part of Rih’s great TALENT is her ear for an hit. She was the first to work with chase and status
    and now look how big they are! She was the first person to work with Calvin harris in tHE US
    NOW look at him going up for BRITS.

    Beyonce’s daddy was picking out all her hits, and now he cannot she is over. She might as well
    move to vegas and be a live act. Rih is multi talented, but most of all, SHE CAN SMELL A HIT A MILE OFF
    AND WITH THAT SHE WILL WIN no matter what beyonce and u haters say. The music game is buith on hits

      @beyonce n rita whora flop together .. Well beyonce didn’t get beat up by her boyfriend, claimed she didn’t wana talk about it then do songs with him. Beyonce doesn’t post nude pics of herself on twitter smoking blunts. Rihanna is a walking pile of s** and controversy. You think rihannas success is just based off music?? Honey do you even understand how this industry works in this generation. Its not about talent and good music its about keeping your name out there and drawing attention. Chris brown hitting rihanna was terrible and horrible but it was honestly magic for her career. And I actually like rihannas personality but I dnt have my head in the sand. Beyonce isn’t a rihanna type artist ppl call her for kennedy center honors, inaugurations and superbowls she’s no longer JUST the pop star rihanna is. The second rihanna doesn’t make top 10 records (she had her first number one album but it fell out of the top 10 in TWO WEEKS) her career has no other weight behind it.

      Did u not read the article you fool. Those songwiters try to give the songs to OTHER SINGERS, BUT THEY TURNED IT DOWN AND RIH DID NOT. THAT IS THE POINT. RIP was written for rih, she turns it down. Rita takes it and it flops. Rih was right to turn it down cos she KNOWS A HIT.

      HOW CAN A SONGWRITER HAVE A HIT, WITHOUT A SINGER SLAYING IT? Sia gave radioactive to rita whors and it flopped. She has got a an ear cos she decides what songs go on her album. SHE heard stay when mikky ekko had it as his OWN SONG. She loved it, cut teh vocals and decided to keep him on as duet. THAT WERE HER CALL AND TALENT TO get this song and keep mikky on the track.

      Stay is number 3 in the USA.

      YOU TRIED THOUGH! I bet the stay demo was turned down by every other singer.

    Sam,

    You can diss Nicole for not having the talent to spot a hit, but, what about Rita Whora wasting tracks.
    Case in point: Radioactive did not make the UK top 10, but Sia done a great job.

    Radioactive would of smash if Sia gave it to Chris Brown. The video was screaming for dance routine.

    How we do would smashed if Kesha recorded. Rita peaked at 68 with the song, which was an easy
    hit in the USA. Songs like HWD go top 10 in the USA – given it is the right artist

    RIP WAS MADE FOR CIARA AND DRAKE. RIP did not chart in the usa, but I know if Ciara done the track
    with Drake, she would of got number 1 and WW top 5 hit. I know it! Lets hope Chris brown and
    Ciara can still take the tracks Rita wasted. It would be a shame to let it waste.

    So, you have singers who cannot hear a hit and singers who WASTE good healthy tracks. LOL LOL
    RIH DONE changed the game bad. Now, the game is playing by her RULES.

      TBH I think that Nicole can saaang! That girl knows how to hit those notes. Ciara on the other hand…..
      I’m not really sure why she (Nicole) isn’t having a thriving solo career, especially with the platform of being in a successful girl group with a few hits. She’s hot & she’s talented, I’m not sure why the public isn’t checking for her though.
      Either way, I don’t think WFL would’ve been the hit it became if she sang it. It’s unfortunate because I think she has the “materials” to be a good solo artist.

      Nicole can carry a tune but her voice is not distinctive nor does it stand out. It’s not about being able to hit a note all the time it’s bout a certain characteristic and charm that carries that talent. To me, there’s nothing special about her voice. And I’ve heard her sing a part of WH’s “I will always love you” on X factor. Pretty karaok-ish.

    Rihanna sells a lot of her music off of her name, s** and the controversy around her (using a blonde-headed guy in the video that resembles chris brown). Todays market isn’t about music and talent anymore xcept for the FEW rare occasions (bruno mars, adele). I honeslty don’t think it would have been the monster record it became with nicole behind it.

      I’m not MAD. I’m reporting FACTS. Gold is NOT considered successful like Platinum. Every artist wants to go platinum. She’s a POPstar appealing to the youth. therefore, her work must be platinum status. That wasn’t the case with MOTS. Yall woulda torn Beyonce to shreds if she EVER went GOLD with any of her albums in America. Platinum is the standard for pop artists.

    There’s no way this girl would have made it a hit, absolutely no way. Here’s the thing you need to realize about Rihanna, it’s not the music that makes her a hit, it is the sheer fact that Rihanna sang the song that makes it a hit. Rihanna has a style in which she sings her songs and they become hits, stay proved this.

    No one can sing a Rihanna song better than Rihanna.

    Stupid ass!!!! MOTS went gold in America and sold 1.5 million worldwide!

    AGLM sold 1.5 million in America and sold 4 million worldwide!

    GGGB sold almost 3 million in America and 8 million worldwide!

    The Chris brown incident happened in 2009 and she released Rated R that year which sold 1.1 million in America and 3.5 million worldwide

    So how did she sell so much prior to the Chris brown fiasco? Exactly! Go back to your corner dummy!

      They are just angry that BEYONCE CANNOT EVEN GET AIRPLAY IN HER OWN COUNTRY and bajun rih owns the USA RADIO. THEY a re scared that beyoncr will only soon be doing vegas, cos she clearly cannot make hits anymore and they are sad to see beyonce being forced into VEGAS. She will make good money, but it is kinda weird at her ” age ”.

      No rih’s fault she cannot spot a hit.

    Why did she pass on that song? It´s just as generic as hers LOL
    Seriously We Found love is one of the most generic songs to become a hit in music history. It´s just a proof of how important the hype and the constant pushing and radio support is these days. So sad
    Billboard and labels are focused on destroying what´s left of music

      I agree. Never got the hype around that song. It’s the same words over and over. I wouldn’t reccomend it to somebody who actually likes substance, a good hook, and a bridge in their music. It’s basically dancehall/Club type of music but I’ve heard better still.

    The reason why Rih cannot be shut down ( much to the sadness of her haters ) is because she understands the market and has an ear for hits. Her talents lie in that. Some say, ” she does not write the song ” SO? She knows how to pick the good songs and leaves the wack songs. Mary j blige turned down umbrella. Christina millian turned down SOS. Rih turned down RIP ad it flopped. Rih turned down dj got us falling in love and that was not bigger than her hits. So, this is why beyonce is scared to take her on in the charts. Rih can spot a hit in any genre. Beyonce cannot.

      It’s not that. It’s just that It’s the Rihanna fans making her seem like she is a legend just because she has a lot of hits. But her talent alone is marginal and anyone could fill her shoes. For example, Mariah Carey is a REAL pop icon and legend. She wrote a bulk of her music, could interpret a song with extreme vocal competence and execution and has sold over 200 million records and has inspired many artists including your fave to sing so her talent and influence is multi-demensional. That a REAL artist/singer who has a ear for hits not just a karaoke artist like Rihanna singing over other people’s brilliance. #TRUTH.

    Seems to be a recurring thing with Rihanna that some of her biggest hits seem to be songs rejected by the other artists. No wonder she’s scoring big, she gets lucky from people passing them up. So Britney passed up Umbrella, Chris Brown passed up Disturbia, Leona Lewis & Nicole passed up We Found Love…

        You can compare them all you want. If there’s one thing Rihanna doesn’t have it’s talent. Chris can write a song, Rihanna can’t. Leona could sing rings around Rihanna and Britney may not be what she was, but Rihanna will never be on her level of pop stardom.

    I think this shows that “success” in the entertainment industry is an equation of looks, decent talent (higher points the more talented you are), and your company selling the SH*T out of you (ie putting tons of money into pushing you on the public), knowing what works for you (look, music, endorsements) and finally, selling your soul.

    The truth is Rihanna is only making those hits because of her name and not because of her voice, she is not that talented in fact her voice is very limited. She is using her image to sell not her voice because in this era a powerhouse voice is no longer in demand, but only a model with basic voice. Let say if someone like Whitney Houston recorded the song do you really think the song will have become a hit? time have changed talent is no more in demand long are the days where only people with powerful voice were the ones ruling the charts.

    Nicole is attractive and can sing and dance, but what makes her STAND OUT from any random chick on the street who’s also attractive and can sing and dance? Apparently, the only way she can make an impression is if she’s surrounded by a bunch of other girls who make her seem prettier and more talented in comparison, but on her own, she gets lost in the shuffle.
