Scherzinger and Hamilton announced earlier this week that they had decided to split after dating for two years.
Ne-Yo, who is working with Scherzinger on her solo album, has now said that she is putting all her energy into her work.
According to Contactmusic, he said: "Nicole is in a state of liberation right now so the tracks are very free. She is in a place where she is happy to be alive and the tracks are definitely expressing that.
"The whole album is going to be a pressure release - a great big exhale - and I'm happy about that. She has a lot of emotions after splitting up with Lewis. But it's like taking an eagle and giving it back its wings."
