Nicole Scherzinger’s long-awaited sophomore album drops in the UK next week on October 20. Big Fat Lie is a bit of a departure from her pop dance-ready debut Killer Love. Tricky Stewart and The Dream produced the entire album which features the 36-year-old taking a more mellower approach.

I gotta say, I kinda like it. Previously released tracks “On The Rocks” and “God Of War” remain favorites, while “Electric Blue” featuring T.I. and “Heartbreaker” sound promising.

Fans of Scherzy’s more upbeat fare, fear not. Nicole previously stated the US release of Big Fat Lie, due out in Spring 2015, would feature a slightly different tracklist. “Our club is different in America. I feel like the club here (UK) is more dance and the club in America is a little more R&B and hip-hop,” she said in an interview with Graham Norton.

Check out an album sampler of Big Fat Lie below and weigh in on which tracks are your favorite. If none of them please you, sound off about that as well.

Before you get too excited, Nicole Scherzinger isn’t reuniting with the Pussycat Dolls. Although, it wouldn’t surprise me if she did in the future, if her new solo album flops like her previous attempt. Rather, the 36-year-old singer is joining the West End revival production of Cats. She’ll play “Glamour Cat” Grizabella for a 12-week run starting in December at London’s Palladium.

“I am really thrilled to be making my West End debut in such an iconic show and I couldn’t be more excited,” Nicole shared in a statement. “To have the opportunity to work with Andrew [Lloyd Webber], Trevor, and Gillian is a dream come true. I grew up listening to Andrew’s extraordinary music and was lucky enough, a couple of years ago, to record Cats’ beautiful song ‘Memory.’ Andrew’s score is breathtaking and I am truly honored to have been asked to take part in what I know will be a very special time in my career. I can’t wait to begin rehearsals.”

This isn’t the first time Scherzinger has performed songs from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical. She’s previously sang songs from Phantom Of The Opera and Evita for various music specials. Check out the performances below.

For the most part, I like it better when Nicole Scherzinger delivers uptempo tracks like “Poison,” “Don’t Hold Your Breath” or “Wet.” Even during her Pussycat Dolls era, the only slow jam I enjoyed was “Stickwitu,” which by the way is an awesome group karaoke song to sing along to. The 36-year-old is going against familiar ground to promote her sophomore album.

After a couple buzz singles, “Your Love” and “On The Rocks,” Scherzinger has chosen “Run” as the official first single off her LP, Big Fat Lie. Instead of going with a pop-dance number, she’s opted for a heartfelt piano ballad which allows Nicole to show off her soaring vocals. The track, like most of the songs on her forthcoming effort, was produced by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. Give the song a listen below. Does Nicole finally have a solo hit on her hands? Weigh in below.

Sometimes simple is best. I wasn’t a huge fan of “On The Rocks,” but the accompanying black and white video has warmed me up to the electro R&B ballad.

The narrative is relatively simple with Nicole Scherzinger distraught over her relationship with an extremely hunky man. Yelling and some ugly crying goes on before the former Pussycat Dolls frontwoman magically tosses her ex off his chair. She then runs into the desert where plenty of glamor shots begin. She may not be able to produce a chart-topper in North America, but girl can toss her hair in the wind like no other. She looks stunning here.

“On The Rocks” isn’t a surefire hit but I’m optimistic it could do some minor damage on the charts. At least over in the UK. Scherzinger seems to have better luck over there. Give the Tim Mattia-directed clip a view below.

One would think “On The Rocks” is about Nicole Scherzinger’s quest for that elusive successful solo career. It would make sense since attempt after attempt has failed in North America. “Your Love” didn’t exactly burn up the charts and only managed to peak at No. 6 in the UK. The 36-year-old is back with the second single off her forthcoming album which was produced entirely by The Dream and Tricky Stewart.

“This is one that some people will really be able to relate to, to really feel. I’ve always spoken about my life in music but I’m at an age where I can be even more open. You can peel back the layers on this album.” – Nicole Scherzinger

On The Rocks” is a bit of a departure from all the uptempo and mid-tempo dance tracks usually released by Nicole. Switching things up with a ballad might be the trick to finally achieve a solo chart-topper. Sadly, I don’t think this ballad is it. She soars on the chorus, but it’s just not catchy. However, I will say, the single artwork is on point. She looks sensational. Give her latest a spin below.

If you got it, flaunt it. Nicole Scherzinger certainly lives by that mantra. The 35-year-old singer frolics on the beaches of Malibu wearing extremely cropped denim shorts for her new video “Your Love.” Sex sells, right?

The single, produced by The Dream and Tricky Stewart, is the first since the Pussycat Doll parted ways with Interscope. Hopefully, she’ll have better luck at achieving that elusive solo career with her new label Sony Music. I have to say, she might have a shot. The ‘do do do, do do do‘ part is extremely catchy. Check out the sexy visual below.

All these four ladies have released lyric videos in the past few days. Rather than create an individual post for each, I decided to clump them all together. #lazy ;)

Of the four, the only one I haven’t previously written about is Cheryl Cole’s latest. The X Factor judge returns with a bombastic potential club banger with “Crazy Stupid Love.” The Tinie Tempah-assisted track has the potential to be a Summer smash, at least across the pond it does.

Check out her lyric video below, along with “Lemonade” by Danity Kane, “Say It” from Michelle Williams and Nicole Scherzinger’s latest, “Your Love.” Danity Kane’s is by far the cutest with its PG-rated take on Beyonce’s “Yonce” video.

While all four tracks are pretty decent, surprisingly Michelle’s is my favorite. Gospel music isn’t normally my thing but I can’t help but smile and wanna dance whenever I hear her track.

With a new record deal in tow (RCA Records), Nicole Scherzinger is hoping to finally achieve that successful solo career that has so far eluded her. While she’s scored a few Top 10 hits across the pond, none of her music (some of which aren’t bad) have failed to resonate with North American radio. “Your Love” could be her ticket.

Given that Interscope mismanaged her career, I would love for the 35-year-old singer to score a smash hit with her new label. With her looks, voice and dance skills, one would think that’s enough to become a superstar. Sadly, there’s something inherently not likeable about her. I used to feel that way but have learned to appreciate the former PCD lead singer.

The mellow mid-tempo track is produced by hit-makers The Dream and Tricky Stewart. It features an incredibly catchy hook with its ‘du du du‘. Give the track which she premiered on SoundCloud a listen below. Be sure to weigh in afterwards.
