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.
