Nicole Scherzinger Gets Dramatic In “On The Rocks” Video: Watch

Nicole Scherzinger had us cheerfully doo-doo-doo-da-doo-ing along to her catchy UK summer smash “Your Love” for months on end, which is what her selection for Single #2 from her forthcoming album, “On The Rocks,” that much more of a downer.

The Tricky and The-Dream-helmed electro-R&B ballad is undoubtedly emotional, although it doesn’t quite pack the same punch as her previous forays into pop power balladry, from the incredible “Don’t Hold Your Breath” to her unreleased (but still amazing) “Pretty.” All that being said, the video has arrived!

The appropriately dramatic black and white clip sees the distraught diva tossing and turning in bed with mascara-stained cheeks, having it out with her handsome beau and, of course, serving up a drink or two on the rocks. She looks absolutely stunning (she’s Scherzy, that’s a given!), and she’s always been great at conveying the emotion of her music. Even if the song isn’t all that mindblowing, she’s still got that undeniable X factor. (That being said, roll on with Single #3, please!)

What do you think of “On The Rocks”? Is it a grower? Let us know in the comments below.
