Nicole Scherzinger Denies Being Dropped By Record Label, Promising New Music For 2016 (EXCLUSIVE)

Nicole Scherzinger has revealed that she’s currently working on new music, slamming reports that she was dropped by her label RCA during a chat with HuffPost UK.

In June, it was reported that the former Pussycat Doll had been let go by the label, after a series of unsuccessful singles.

However, the singer has now told us that wasn’t the case, answering the question of whether she has new music on the way with a swift “absolutely”.

“I’ve got a new deal coming out,” she told HuffPost UK, before turning her attention to previous reports. “It was rumoured all this year that I was dropped and I actually wasn’t dropped."

“I was signing a new deal, with another label,” she continued. “We’re still working on finalising the contract, which I am unable to speak too much about.

“I’m really excited about this project and new music that I’m putting together, and which will be released next year.”

The news that Nicole had parted ways from RCA was met with sadness from fans in June, and sources alleged that the label “didn’t get [Nicole] the support she needed on the release [of her album ‘Big Fat Liar’] to make it a success”.

Now, the former ‘X Factor’ judge has a number of exciting projects in the pipeline, and she’ll be returning to TV screens in the UK and the US next year, thanks to a new Sky1 panel show, and Neil Patrick Harris’s Stateside show ‘Best Time Ever’.

Nicole also took the chance to clarify recent rumours about her relationship with Ed Sheeran, revealing the truth about her alleged secret dates with the British singer.
