The times when music alone could shake souls are (unfortunately) gone. Right now singers need to be also actors and dancers in order to take a spot in the Olympus of the international music biz. And the ex Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger has truly what it takes to hold her deserved success.
After quite some time now, Nicole tries to hit again the charts with a new song called Papi in collaboration with broadway singer Todrick Hall. Surely not an original title, but don’t be fooled by the cover. The song is good and it is a spellbinding pop up time with tiny veins of latin production, a track that victoriously blends acoustic and electronic guitar in a truly effective rhythm, totally immersed in the typical Broadway musical style.
I am quite sure that Papi will not be fully supported by the radios because of its structure, but I have to say that the vocal interpretation of Nicole and Todrick is immense. Especially the former Pussycat Doll roars like a lioness in this track, but praises also to Todrick who can easily stand the great voice of Nicole that shines in tracks like this one.
A+ for this musical couple. Enjoy Papi and its hot(!) video.
