Nadine Coyle unveils 'Sweetesthigh': First Listen
Just seven months after her Tesco-sponsored, critically panned Insatiable album, Nadine has released 'Sweetesthigh' across the globe - and if its out-of-the-blue appearance wasn't surprising enough, she's only gone all dancey on us too.
Listen to 'Sweetesthigh' below:
In short, it's a pumped-up dance track that sounds like a Kelly Llorenna cast-off remixed by Almighty circa 1998 - and is likely to go down a treat at your local gay establishment.
We've always admired Nadine for "going indie" after years of major label styling under Girls Aloud - even empathised with her tabloid frenemy status - but truth be told, this latest musical leap feels nothing if a bit confused.
While we're not quite sure what 'Sweetesthigh' is in aid of (surely she isn't going to put herself through the humiliation of a second solo LP?), it feels like a sorely misguided attempt at bandwagon jumping. Slapping a high-wired club beat over some empty lyrics about "you and I on the sweetest high" is all well and good for Guetta and LMFAO, but when you've got a set of pipes like Nadine's - which shine wonderfully as ever here - her potential ultimately feels wasted.
