Lead Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger is back in the recoding studio.
Thank you for reading this, because I know a majority of you are Rose McGown status “How tired we are” of the back and forth regarding an impending Pussycat Dolls reunion. According to a new report from Variety, Scherzinger bought some of the group’s rights from creator, Robin Antin, and is recording new music for the relaunch beginning today (Sep. 20).
The Sun claims Scherzinger signed a multi-million dollar deal to rejoin the group. Not only will there be new music released, but there’s a reported tour slated for 2020. Take all my money!
“I am working on music,” Scherzinger confirmed to Variety this week. “I’m still evolving as an artist and as a writer and as a performer, so I can’t wait to release new stuff next year.” She didn’t confirm whether or not it was destined for a new PCD album.
The prospect to release new music is something Scherzinger hasn’t always been afforded. Interscope reportedly poured $1.5 million into an album, Her Name Is Nicole, that never saw the light of day. Scherzinger said she probably had about five albums worth of material recorded for it (a source who worked on the LP estimated it was more like ~300 songs). She worked with the likes of Timbaland, Will.I.Am and Ne-Yo. Ne-Yo contributed two songs originally meant for Britney Spears (one was titled “Save Me from Myself”).
“I guess timing is everything,” Scherzinger reasoned. “It just means the world that I had a beautiful team that saw my vision and supported me.”
“People don’t always see all of the work that goes in behind the scenes,” she continued. “I know a lot of great writers, friends of mine like The-Dream or Snoop or Ne-Yo, continue to write and record music that never sees the light of day. Because maybe it’s not that pop hit,” she said, “but one day it’ll have its time.”
