Nicole Scherzinger Sets Date for U.S. Debut

Nicole Scherzinger

After a few false starts, Nicole Scherzinger is ready to conquer America alone. The former Pussycat Doll has announced a release date for her U.S. solo debut.

Killer Love, which is currently available in the U.K., will arrive stateside on August 16, Interscope Records has announced. It is led by the 50 Cent-assisted single “Right There” and will feature her U.K. singles “Poison” and “Don’t Hold Your Breath,” along with four to five new songs including a collaboration with R. Kelly and Snoop Dogg called “Peep Show.”

“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.”

Nicole will perform the Jim Jonsin-produced “Right There” with 50 Cent on the May 19 episode of “American Idol” and co-host Simon Cowell’s singing competition “The X Factor” this fall.

    @jeremydante,

    Well, seeing how she’s going to be on your TV screen every week come September, and she’s gonna be all over the radio bc of X Factor, that opinion makes no sense.

    I’m sick of this other lisa jockin’ my style. She doesn’t even have enough respect for herself to capitalize the ‘L’ in Lisa. Anyway, why does Rap-Up keep posting about this flop? She’s going to struggle to reach 50K and she’ll always be referred to as a former Pussycat Doll. That is all.

    @Lisa, and how much are you gonna sell first week? Oh! I forgot. You’re just a nameless hoe who sits around the computer to write shit.. Bitch get a life.

    I’m very interested to see how “Right There” will perform on the charts. I’m hoping it will grow on me. I feel like it would be a lot more appealing without 50 Cent’s verse. Him on it just makes it seem so outdated IMO.
