Singer Nicole Scherzinger might not be getting much traction with her recent singles, but her bikini work is something to be celebrated. The former Pussycat Doll rocked a string bikini over the long weekend while on holiday in Spain, and her beach look has set tongues to wagging.
The Daily Mail posted pics of Scherzinger in a tiny bikini on the small Spanish island of Formentera on Sunday. Nicole showed up in minimal makeup for her dip in the Mediterranean, but her new fiancee, Formula One racer Lewis Hamilton, was missing from Scherzinger’s ocean romp. Instead, Sherzinger partied with a few other swimwear-clad friends on a yacht, though no one looked quite as good as Nicole did, of course.
Nicole has been making headlines more for her looks as of late than her lyrics and tunes. Scherzinger’s “On The Rocks” is her latest single, and a video for the track debuted this week. Scherzinger’s new track, though, made more headlines for its steamy cover, which shows Nicole striking a sultry pose in a low-cut dress.
That pic, first shared via Nicole’s Instagram account, definitely increased awareness of her single and the forthcoming album. The post drew 384 comments, and it garnered more than 24,000 likes.
Even Scherzinger’s own attempt at the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge drew talk of just how hot Nicole looked as she tried to cool off. The challenge is meant to draw attention to Lou Gehrig’s Disease, but Nicole’s abs proved to be the real attention grabber.
Scherzinger’s next album, still untitled, is due out in the coming weeks, and it still doesn’t have a breakout hit yet. If Nicole keeps popping up looking like she did in Spain, though, the music could very well be a complete afterthought.
The singer, of course, is still hoping that people will pay attention to the music. Of “On The Rocks,” Nicole said that the song is “really personal to me. I love it. It’s a break-up song.”
“I want the girls and all the people out there who’s ever had a hard time in a relationship,” Nicole continued, “to put this song on repeat and feel really empowered.”
Scherzinger herself appears to have fully pulled out of a tough period. She recently admitted to struggling with bulimia and substance abuse, but she says she recovered thanks to therapy and positive thinking. The love of a man she loves might have also helped; Nicole recently accepted her longtime boyfriend’s fourth attempt at a marriage proposal, meaning that their roller-coaster relationship might be in for a smooth landing.
