New Video: Nicole Scherzinger – ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

Published: Thursday 10th Feb 2011 by Sam

The video for Nicole Scherzinger‘s latest single ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ premiered a few moments ago.

Check out the clip after the jump…

Ever so applicable here is the age old adage: if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Having actually enjoyed the original version of the song, I’m not quite sure what her team were attempting with this version; whatever it was, it falls all the way flat.

More autotune, with a cheaper Electro-Pop beat flung on, this latest incarnation the song takes away from what otherwise is a decent enough video.

For as talented as Nicole is, things just don’t seem to be aligning for her when most needed. I mean when not the video, it’s the song. When not the song, it’s the video; and so on and so forth.

For her sake, this needs to catch on regardless; creating leeway for the (fingers crossed) better handling of her next release. Sigh.

    i think this more radio friendly and much likeable than poison. following the footsteps of teenage dream.

    and btw, the “original version” is the same version in the video. i knew by reading your blogs about Nic, that you believe that she is of pure talent but you really havent liked anything that came out. maybe youre wanting something like her Power’s Out or Save Me Myself.. but the girl and her management chose what they think will ‘sell’, which imo they are on the right track.

    Flopzinger for realz!! Who caresss about this biatch… the stars are not aligned. In fact the great dipper is missing – her brain.

    Well I liked it, she looks stunning. As for the song it’s a good POP record that I think well do well in Europe.

  10. Richard February 10, 2011

    Thought it was very good, obviously they listened to her fans when they changed it back to how the Demo sounded…

    So it wasn’t the original as you say Sam…

    nicole has such a great voice, but the video doenst make the song any better, its like cheryl (hater) cole the flood, boring

  18. Aryo February 10, 2011

    @X_POSED99 f*** off hater

  19. ERIC February 11, 2011

    I THINK THIS IS HER BEST VIDEO YET. NOT THE BEST THING AROUND, COULD’VE BEEN BETTER. BUT IT WAS REALLY GOOD.
    WHEN SHE WAS WALKING IN THE DARK ROOM WITH THE WINDOWS OPEN THE VIDEO HAD AN 80S VIBE I WISH IT HAD REFLECTED ON THE REST OF THE VIDEO.

  20. Tha_Truth February 11, 2011

    This version of the song has a much greater chance for success…In my humble opinion… They also cleaned up some of her vocals as well! Best effort from her in quite some time!

  21. Kyus February 11, 2011

    This is amazing. Nothing much really happens in the video but she looks pretty regardless and the song’s really grown on me

  22. Laurie February 11, 2011

    Does she have a audience really ?? I feel kind of sad for her cause you can tell she is trying so hard to have a solo career but for some reason it’s just not working. Her songs are way too wack ! she’s of interest only for a small fan base. But the case of this girl is really strange cause people seemed to love PCD when obiously is was more Nicole and her back up dancers and now that that she just make it official as a solo artist it is not working ! Strange

    nicole, you are so underrated! great song and beautiful video
