New Music: Nicole Scherzinger – ‘On The Rocks’

August 26, 2014


After her moderate successful single. ‘Your Love’, former Pussycat Doll served up her follow-up single, ‘On The Rocks’. The single was produced by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream and well, It is a let down.

The song starts off with piano riffs followed by Nicole’s crystal clear vocals on the melody-less verses and builds into an infectious chorus(which is the song’s saving grace). The bridge is auto-tuned and it takes the song’s credibility. The verses and bridge are just flat and disappointing. Nothing special or WOW about this song.

This makes me wonder how the album’s direction is. If  ‘Your Love’  and ‘On The Rocks’ are the best from the album, then Nicole better say bye to her ill-fated solo career. I still don’t get how they always get it wrong with Nicole. If Tricky and The Dream produced Rihanna’s ‘Umbrella’ and Mariah’ Carey’s ‘Touch My Body’, How can they serve this?

Nicole is immensely talented and marketable, but her music is always and I mean always sub-par (with exception to ‘Whatever U Like’ and Don’t Hold Your Breath) and it is dragging her even further from the charts. If it were up to me, I would scrap the single or at least alter it, but Oh, Well. ‘On The Rocks’ is being released Worldwide on  September 15 and UK on October 12. The latter is lifted from Nicole Scherzinger’s  yet-to-be-titled album due this fall.

You can listen to the song below.
