Nicole Scherzinger Calls New Album 'Empowering'

Pussycat Doll dishes to MTV News about recording 'dance anthems' with producer RedOne.

Nicole Scherzinger is currently in the process of wrapping up work on her solo album, Killer Love, set to drop later this year. For it, she's already hooked up with 50 Cent for the track "Right There," and she's working with some choice A-list producers for the long-simmering record.

"Well, I did a lot of the album with my producer RedOne and then I did sprinkles, other colors of the album with producers like Jim Jonsin and The-Dream and Tricky Stewart and Ne-Yo and I'm fortunate enough to have my boy 50 and Snoop on the album," Scherzinger told MTV News when we visited the "Right There" set in L.A. "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."

RedOne is certainly the man of the moment, helming hit tunes for Lady Gaga and J.Lo. Scherzinger said that working with the producer was amazing for many reasons, including their choice of locale while recording.

"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," she recalled. "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."
