That will, no doubt, be the question on the lips of many at the mention of Nicola Roberts. However, as many of our UK readers will know, the 25 year old is no stranger to the spotlight.
Indeed the red-head has spent the better part of 10 years sharing the spotlight with new X Factor USA judge Cheryl Cole, as part of successful British group Girl Aloud.
Now, following in footsteps of Cole and the band’s lead singer Nadine Coyle, Roberts is stepping out on her own with the help of an all-star cast of producers. The most notable being Diplo.
Responsible for Beyonce‘s ‘Run The World’, the hitmaker has crafted Roberts’ debut effort ‘Beat of My Drum’ – the lead release from her forthcoming LP ‘Cinderella’s Eyes’. The quirky cut arrives at digital outlets on June 5th via Polydor /Universal Music.
Can “the quiet one” strike it lucky on her own? Time will most certainly tell.
