Teaser: Nicola Roberts – ‘Beat of My Drum’ Video

Published: Wednesday 1st Jun 2011 by Sam

While her Girls Aloud cohort Cheryl Cole reels after being sacked from the X Factor USA, Nicola Roberts gears up for her own assault on the charts.

The unlikely soloist is hoping to make a splash with her debut single ‘Beat of My Drum’. Produced by Diplo (Beyonce’s ‘Run The World’), the cut is the lead release from Roberts’ ‘Cinderella’s Eyes’ LP.

Check out a preview of the track’s video below; the dancing is a must-see. Full clip premieres this Sunday (June 5th).

Putting the painful routine to one side, the song actually sounds solid. Whether it’ll be enough to overshadow her glaring inabilities as a performer will be interesting to see.

Your thoughts?

    Yo! Dont come for my girl….Nicola had more talent, style and singing ability than all them other Loud ass Girls in her group. I’m routing for her. Girl started her own cosmetic line whilst them other four were busy trying to find a man to latch onto to make them famous.

    Get IT NIC!!

    Why diplo wasted this ong on her is beyond me. I like nicola but she has less charisma and stage presence than the average pentioner

    Oh my God. This was painful to watch. She looked beautiful, but damn that clip was just bad. Sound like something for a five year old.

    I love Nicola! But that dancing ain’t her! She should have gone with the sit and look pretty approach like Rihanna is so accustomed to!

    Nice song, wrong moves!

  8. SWEETHE♥RT (A.K.A. ICON) June 1, 2011

    I like the song. The dance moves were hilarious. Good to luck to her she deserves to better than Cheryl as she is talented and Cheryl is not.

    LOVE IT!!!!!

    Did anyone else notice that she hasnt really got control over her mouth? Like those veneers are making it hard for her to speak.. I love Nicola and I like the song. She looks cute in the vid, but I do agree that she does look just a tad awkward doing those dance moves. A for effort though boo.

    Sounds like it could be a good song but lord someone needs to help her with that dancing.

  14. Dan June 2, 2011

    I can’t wait to hear this song in full! Its going to be pop gold! Nicola Roberts is a star!!

  15. Misty Jean June 2, 2011

    How is this urban music? smh. This website is becoming more and more about white pop singers… I’m not here for that!

  16. ERIC June 2, 2011

    Run the world gone spice girls!
    C’mon Nic, you can do better than this!

  17. AG June 2, 2011

    this is an urban site but it’s also about bringing british talent to the forefront as this is a BRITISH SITE, IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT


  18. YOOSONDALOOSE June 2, 2011

    Love it, sounds great, better than Cheryls’ crap. h sorry music. Plus the dance routine is innovative and definitely not what i expect from Girls Aloud member Nicola!

  19. Yellow Gorillah June 2, 2011

    All I got to say is


  20. A. Doss June 2, 2011

    The dancing looks like it’s supposed to be tongue in cheek. I don’t think she’s trying to be Beyonce, people!

  21. Lush June 3, 2011

    Hey Hey Hey… I think any white girl that puts more effort into their dancing than Britney deserves a bit more credit… its suppose to be fun jeez

  22. Frankie June 6, 2011
