The woman generally referred to in blogdom as Nicole Flopzinger is still forging away with her solo career, three years after releasing Whatever U Like, the ‘lead single’ from her long shelved debut album Her Name Is Nicole. Yesterday, Nicole went ahead and released a brand new single – Nobody Can Change Me. Scherzinger previously referred to the song as being “empowering” and “very much like the Pussycat Dolls” so it should be a Worldwide hit – right? Take a listen below:
Sadly for Nicole, this doesn’t look like its going to be a super smash. In fact, it’s unlikely that the song will make a dent in the chart at all – the track is a cute mid-tempo that works just fine for Summer. It has an uplifting sound but doesn’t cash in on the current electro craze at all – apart from in the vocal department where Nicole’s voice is needlessly layered with Auto-Tune. This irritating vocal style has probably led to bloggers across the Internet universally panning the new single. I have to say, I feel sorry for Nicole. The woman clearly wants a hit by herself even though she pretty much IS the Pussycat Dolls. I also feel that this is a song forced upon her by her record label because Scherzinger is hoping to go “a little more rock, funk, soul edge” on her album (if it’s ever released). I doubt Nobody Can Change Me will set the charts alight in the US (prove me wrong US readers) but may do well in good ole’ UK. Time will tell I suppose.
