While Nicole Scherzinger continues to ready her sophomore effort, a new cut from the set has surfaced in the form of ‘Cold’. The icy midtempo was produced by Dave Aude, who also conjured up the singer’s latest single ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’.
Take a listen to ‘Cold’ after the jump…
The song’s title is particularly apt. For, yet again, Scherzinger delivers material which neither moves nor rouses. To her credit, ‘Poison’ and ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ are relatively solid – with even this song presenting a winning face lyrically. However for an act as talented as her, as well as the fact she is clearly a label priority, how her musica manages to be so ‘just there’ is beyond me.
Here’s hoping I’m forced to eat humble pie when that album drops. After all, I believe Nicole has the talent to truly be a force. Yet, as you know, we don’t encourage nor applaud mediocrity around these sides. No maam.
