With the New Year nigh, it appears Nicole Scherzinger is looking to finally break out as a solo force.
Recent years have seen the former Pussycat Doll star cool her musical efforts in favour of helping others realize their dreams on The X Factor UK. However, if new reports are to be believed, the 34-year-old will be flaunting her own x factor on the charts next Summer with a new album – which will serve as the first release from a major new recording deal.
Details after the jump…
Reliable word has revealed that the Pop performer is on the brink of inking a $5 million deal with Sony Music – which forms part of a major commercial relaunch.
The Huffington Post writes:
“Nicole was the most popular member of the X Factor panel this year and is the real winner in terms of bankability. She is set to sign with Sony and can’t wait to get back to her music which took a back seat during X Factor.”
What’s more, as well as her new recording contract, Ms. Scherzinger is also set to rake in the cha-ching in 2014 with other lucrative deals that include being the face of Herbal Essences shampoo and a reported £1million deal with fashion brand Missguided.
If indeed now housed at Sony, it would mean that the singer has severed ties with longtime recording home, Interscope, which sits under the corporate umbrella of Sony rival Universal Music.
Say what you want about Nicole, but she’s definitely been playing her cards right, stacking her coins, and making the right power moves. Here’s hoping her 2014 brings with it material that is deserving of success. For, she – quite literally – is the full package.
