Nicole Scherzinger - Poison

RedOne strikes again.  He sure does get around.  But you know what really bugs me?  When artists feel the need for their name to be said at the start of the track.  Craig David was all over that (boink) and now Nicole is at it.  There's no need.

Still, this is quite a good track.  Scherzinger is clearly trying to move on from the Pussycat Dolls with a hard-edged, aggressive track, coupled with the superhero/villain video.  Sure, lyrically it's simplistic stuff and the song is essentially just a vehicle for her to pout and look sexy.  But it proves that she's managed to get a good production team behind her.  It's hardly innovative, but it's a good dance track that's sure to do well.
