It seems like everywhere we go, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm] is “Right There.”
Perhaps that’s why she titled her latest single that!
She’s gearing up to release her new album, Killer Love, on August 16th, but she’s also pulling double duty as the co-host of X Factor here in the U.S.!
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicole Scherzinger[/lastfm] sat down with Carson today to share all the latest info about her upcoming projects and it looks like there’s no stopping anytime soon for the former [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pussycat Doll[/lastfm]!
Nicole got her first big break on the WB reality show Popstars, where she earned a spot in the all-girls group [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eden’s Crush[/lastfm].
Fun fact: she was approached to become the fourth member of the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Black Eyed Peas[/lastfm], but she was still under contract with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eden’s Crush[/lastfm]. We all know now that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Fergie[/lastfm] later filled that spot.
She later joined the famous burlesque/pop group, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Pussycat Dolls[/lastfm]. Nicole’s responsible for singing the lead on such hits as “Don’t Cha,” “Stickwitu,” and “Buttons.”

Nicole left [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Pussycat Dolls[/lastfm] in 2006 to pursue a solo career and the sky’s been the limit ever since.
I obviously had my reservations because even though I’m doing all this stuff, music is my first love and the engine for all of this. But the show’s going to be amazing and I love working with him [Simon Cowell]. The whole thing is a phenomenon. It’s great because Simon doesn’t play anything safe and it’s fun to be to able to play in a world like that.
In today’s evolving music industry, Nicole believes that X Factor will bring her closer to her fans:
It’s different now with music. It’s about getting to really know the person, the artist, and the brand, you know, so that you believe and back them up and you’re able to connect with them in that way. And that’s part of the reason why I ventured out and did Dancing with the Stars and X Factor and all these things.
And if all that weren’t enough, she’s releasing her album Killer Love in August.

The album has already been released overseas with huge success.
My first two singles were really good there. My second one was #1 on the charts. That was called “Don’t Hold Your Breath.” And now, I have that album coming out in August, the U.S. version. It’s going to have at least 5 different tracks on it separate from the U.K.
Nicole performed the debut single, “Right There,” featuring [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]50 Cent[/lastfm] on American Idol last week and you can check out the brand new music video below!
