Music: Nicole Scherzinger - Your Love

2014-07-25 12:00


In a nutshell: It's been over a year since former Pussycat Dolls frontwoman, Nicole Scherzinger, released the infectious single Boomerang. Even though it seems like just yesterday that we were jamming to Boomerang, we are grateful that Nicole has finally released some new music ahead of her upcoming second album.

What’s it like: Like walking through a set of tunnels with a pop song blaring over the beatbox. The tune and sound of Your Love is a tad generic but is broken occasionally with a distant "your love makes me feel like" which feels like it was recorded in a tunnel. There's no doubt Nicole's vocals are imposing, but it sadly just adds to the pop wave that threatens to drown its listener.

Fave Bit: "My body is like Bugatti" is a lyric that just feels like a throwback to the Pussycat Doll's hit Don't Cha. It's the stand out lyric in a few that really showcase Nicole's flirtatious energy.

Rating:  Your Love is just another pop song and that may not be too much of a bad thing. It shows that Nicole has successfully followed the formula to make a great pop song. But sadly there's not enough variety in the sound to make the song stand out from anything else on the radio. 3/5
