Nicole Scherzinger’s “Your Love” Arrives Just in Time for Summer

The singer's newest single is her best hope yet for securing a U.S. solo career

 

Nicole Scherzinger’s attempts at post-Pussycat Dolls success keep coming back like a boomerang, but “Your Love” is the singer’s best bet since her solo debut, Killer Love, failed to secure a Stateside release. Over a crunchy, piano-driven dance beat from Tricky Strewart and The-Dream — the highly capable songwriting team behind Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” — Scherzinger proves her judging stints on reality competitions have only sharpened her ear for hooks. The track’s catchy doo-doo-doo chorus is well on its way to lodging itself in unsuspecting heads this summer, so it’s no wonder Scherzinger name-checks pop-culture figures like Mike Tyson — “Your Love” is a knockout.
