Single Review: Nicole Scherzinger – ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

  • Published in: Music

I’m very rarely one for taking advice, but one time I was told that the best songs are the ones that grow on you gradually; they’re the ones that’ll be with you for a long time. It’s the ones you like instantly whose shine will wear off within a couple of weeks, even days in some cases.

The other way is to go all out and hunt for a boisterously catchy, energetic dance song with heavy drums, huge chorus hooks and a massive production and hope for the best, Nicole Scherzinger’s ‘Poison’ is a good example of this kind of song. A very good example.
