Nicole Scherzinger is certainly a trier.
Undeterred by the blink-and-you-missed-it performance of her new album ‘Big Fat Lie’, the former Pussycat Doll is pressing on with ‘Run’ – the third single from the UK released LP.
The video for the ballad, which is hoped will jump-start sales for the project, premiered moments ago. Check it out below…
It’s important to first highlight that the song is solid, lyrically engaging, and emotively sung. But, goodness gracious, how boring is it as a single? Not even its visually arresting video could stop us from wondering why, why, and why it’s being released.
That said, given that ‘Big Fat’ was slim on anything remotely close to a hit, the release of this (a well crafted song, not single) begins to make more sense. Slightly.
Still, we feel it imperative that Team Nicole really assess the mess she’s currently in and concoct a plan pronto. To put it bluntly, no one is “here” for these Hail Mary hymns she’s serving up nor the generic rubbish that were the two singles preceding. Folk want solo Pussycat Dolls. Is it really that hard to oblige?
