Nicole Scherzinger- "Happily Never After"
"Happily Never After" is set to be the fourth official single release from pop singer Nicole Scherzinger's debut album, Her Name Is Nicole. Originally an unreleased song slated for The Backstreet Boys' album, Unbreakable, "Happily Never After" was written and produced by R&B extraordinaire, Ne-Yo, with Shea Taylor sharing songwriting credits. The empowering ballad paints a vivid portrait of rising from a scorned love. Vocally, Scherzinger sounds beautiful, but ultimately falls short of possessing the amount of amplitude needed for the splendidly written and produced song; turning the overall product disappointingly ordinary.
With her previous singles ("Whatever U Like," "Baby Love," and "Puakenikeni") failing to make an impact on the Billboard music charts and U.S. radio, the impending release of "Happily Never After" may seem puzzling. Scherzinger has been confirmed to be working full-time with the group she fronts, The Pussycat Dolls, on a follow-up to their multi-platinum international smash debut, PCD, and the status of Scherzinger's Her Name Is Nicole has been placed in limbo with no current release date available.
