A number of big-name producers collaborated with Nicole Scherzinger on her solo album, most notably Timbaland and will.i.am. The official album name was announced as Her Name is Nicole, and the first single was "Whatever U Like." Shortly after this single's release, however, "Baby Love" replaced "Whatever U Like" as the official lead single.
In both her interviews and live performances, Nicole Scherzinger exudes self-confidence and a true sense of strength, all while emanating an irresistible aura of femininity. She has gone on record saying that her favorite dance move is the "booty shake," which she effortlessly pulls off at any given opportunity. Like Gwen Stefani and Britney Spears before her, Nicole Scherzinger is clearly not afraid to use her hotness to accentuate her performances. In 2008, she was a part of two hit singles -- a cover of the track "Rio" by Duran Duran, and Timbaland's "Scream," which she worked on along with Keri Hilson.
