Nicole Scherzinger's loud and dangerous sound
Nicole Scherzinger wanted a "loud, dangerous" sound for her 'Killer Love' album.
The 'Poison' hitmaker recruited rappers Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent alongside Lady Gaga's producer RedOne for her debut solo record, who helped her realise the sound she had in her head.
She told MTV: "I just had a really big sound, a really strong sound in my head - this loud, dangerous image that I wanted to hear and put live onstage. And RedOne is an amazing musician, so he's able to put all these different sounds together and come up with an amazing hybrid. It's really fun."
Alongside RedOne, the former Pussycat Dolls singer used "sprinkles" of other super producers to help her span a number of different genres.
She added: "I did a lot of the album with my producer RedOne and then I did sprinkles, other colours of the album with producers like Jim Jonsin and The-Dream and Tricky Stewart and Ne-Yo.
"So it's definitely got empowering, strong dance anthems and then I got an urban twist in there and some really good uplifting songs as well."
Hawaiian born Nicole also enjoyed the chance to record in Europe, which feels has a great "vibe" to it.
She added: "It was amazing. We actually did most of the album when we worked together. We recorded in the South of France and in Spain and it wasn't just a really beautiful environment but it was a beautiful vibe."Posted on 21 Apr 2011 10:00 to category : Music News
