Nicola Roberts is feeling Lucky with her new single.
Have you visited former Girl Aloud Nicola Roberts’ website? It is bright. Very, very, bright. Nicola Roberts is discarding her previous stereotype as ‘the moody one’ in Girls Aloud with day-glo gusto. Her second solo single, ‘Lucky Day’, is released on 18 Sept and you can now view the video online.
If you expected a Twilight-alike gothy ditty from the auburn haired popstrel you’ll be surprised: it’s a summer tune with a video filmed in 120 degree heat. She out-summers our (predictably) chilly summer with relentless popsicle sweetness. In the video she floats around New York in a floral confection of a dress, punctuating her vocal frillery with a seventies wavy arm effect. How can we resist when she is painting the town pink, yellow and purple? Nicola’s debut album Cinderella’s Eyes is out on the 26 Sept 2011 and promises more surprises as it boasts a long list of collaborators, from Diplo to Metronomy.
Has Nicola won you over? What do you think to ‘Lucky Day’?
