Nicole Scherzinger Preps ‘Peep Show’ with Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly

Nicole Scherzinger

Nicole Scherzinger invaded British shores with her pop-dance album Killer Love, but she hasn’t forgotten about her fans back home. The former Pussycat Doll is putting the finishing touches on the U.S. edition of her solo debut and has a few surprises in store, including a record with Snoop Dogg and R. Kelly.

The album, which is currently available in the U.K., will feature at least four to five new songs when it arrives stateside later this summer, including the 50 Cent-assisted single “Right There.” “At the time I was doing my U.K. album, I was really into more dance-inspired music, which is amazing and so much fun for Europe,” Nicole told Rap-Up.com. “For the U.S., I wanted to go back to my roots where I started, a little bit more urban sounding ’cause that’s still a very big part of me as well, and I wanted to make sure I wove that into the album.”

One of the new tracks, “Peep Show,” was written and produced by R. Kelly and Harvey Mason Jr. and features Snoop Dogg. “I got a song that R. Kelly wrote, which is amazing. Snoop’s on it,” she revealed. “It’s called ‘Peep Show’ and I love it ’cause it actually reminds me a little bit of the Pussycat Dolls, but it’s Nicole. It’s just a really fun and sassy song—a dope song with a great beat. R. Kelly’s such an unbelievable writer. It’s a really hot track I think.”

She hinted at another special guest, but wouldn’t reveal who it was. “I can’t say yet ’cause it’s kinda a surprise,” she teased, adding that the Sting-assisted ballad “Power’s Out” may also appear on the U.S. release.

Nicole, who recently signed on to co-host Simon Cowell’s “X Factor,” scrapped her original debut Her Name Is Nicole after recording around 70 songs. “I decided not to come out with [Her Name Is Nicole] because I felt like the fans really wanted another Pussycat Dolls album, so I gave them what they wanted and before we knew it we were on tour again.”

But after years of crafting solo material, she couldn’t be happier with the final product. “I’m really proud of this album because I chose a lot of the songs that had to do with me losing myself in a relationship, relationships that I’ve had in the past and the process of getting back that strength, and I feel like a lot of people out there can relate to that. But I still keep it sassy.”

    “kinda reminds me of the pussycat dolls..but nicole” umm…sweetie you & PCD is practically the same thing, the only difference is you get a bigger check now. nicole was always hogging the spotlight, can’t say that i see her being a huge solo star- PCD was lucky to have gotten on. & when is melody dropping a record?

    @jeremydante, *Cheque.
    Besides, she’s already a huge success in the UK, and the UK is one of the largest music industries.
    Nicole was supposed to hog the spotlight, seeing as she’s lead singer. Have you ever seen a band in which the lead singer doesn’t get as much attention? No, hence why almost every group breaks up.
    Melody’s record will drop when someone backs her, Till then she’s as good as JoJo is in 2009.

    Killer Love is a really solid album. Full of enjoyable tracks.

    Right There, Say Yes and Power’s Out are incredible.

    Let’s wait for the US edition! =D

    Flop! She needs to come out with a killer track before releasing the album in the US, instead she comes out with ‘Right There’

    I’ve always wanted to have sex with her so bad & I would do unforgivable things to hook up with her. Nice firm ass, round supple breasts & a great face what more can a alien ask for?

    Dan and Nicole’s beautiful and BIG album made it’s way to my dsreotop on Tuesday night. Immediately I ripped open the packaging so I could examine their book. Since I am pretty much in love with Madera Books, the company I use to create albums for my clients, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. Even in the dimly lit space of our living room, their album was gorgeous. The soft leather, the slightly matted pages. I am in love:) And to round out the whole thing is another fantastic design by Erica, who creates all of my album designs. What a great team! Enjoy!:)
