Leak Report: Nicole Scherzinger ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

Femme fatale extraordinaire Nicole Scherzinger is hitting back with a new single: ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’.

I really wasn’t sure how the ex-Pussycat Ho was gonna follow up something as life changing and arresting as ‘Poison’ but this stylish, stomping pop ballad might be the cool change we were looking for.

‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ is produced by serial remixer Dave Aude. Have a listen to Nicole‘s new piece and tell me if it tickles your fancy:

Feed Limmy verdict: Mighty snap.

Mighty snap = this is a hit.
Bounce snap = instantly likeable.
Lightbulb snap = you will need a moment to get into this.
Nonchalant snap = need I say more?
No snap = please cease and decease.

Ladies, I’m playing it very straightforward with Ms Puakenikeni here. At this point, if a Nicole Scherzinger song can make me forget that she was once in a little band called the Pussycat Dolls, then half the battle’s already been won. But to come out with a simple, breezy pop track that slots comfortably beside something as chic as Alexis Jordan‘s ‘Happiness’? I’m impressed.

Nicole started filming the music video last week with director Rich Lee (the man behind Fergie‘s delightful ‘Clumsy’ video). Can’t wait to see what this flawless beauty comes up with.

Footnotes:

There’s no official word on when ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’ single will impact radios yet but we can safely assume that UK stations will be first in line. They’re easily her biggest market right now. I mean, I’m not even sure if ‘Poison’ was released in the States but I know that just like ‘Commander’, it was shamefully snubbed here in Australia. The cause of much vexation. Seriously, boo you, whores.

  1. I fucking love this song, Limmy! This one is just RIGHT. My most favorite from her along with “Whatever U Like.” Hopefully this will be huge and we’ll get an album eventually!

    • Brilliant pop beats, fantastic melody… it’s just so wonderfully pop and catchy. I loved ‘Whatever U Like’ as well but it was probably too “urban” for her to achieve mainstream success with.
