Pussycat Dolls - When I Grow Up

08 September Critic Jonni 0 Comments



Talk about launching back on to the scene, after Nicole Scherzinger's first attempt at going solo failed, the girls reunited with Nicole Scherzinger as the main lead singer with the girls as total backing dancers and singers. Yet they burst back out with this awesome song that really put them back in the spotlight. The Pussycat Dolls parade around the street as a traffic jam stops them from going to the studio, where they nail some amazing choreography, "When I Grow Up" is a dance-powerhouse.

The Pussycat Dolls were a six-piece girl group but lost a member for their second album so here they are a five-piece consisting of Nicole Scherzinger, Ashley Roberts, Kimberly Wyatt, Melody Thornton and Jessica Sutta. This was the first single from their second album, and many people thought Nicole Scherzinger said something very different other than 'groupies' in the chorus, this is an old joke that people still use today. The song reached number three on the UK chart, which is pretty good. The song was written by Rodney Jerkins, Theron Thomas, Timothy Thomas, Jim McCarty and Paul Samwell-Smith. The song samples "He's Always There" by The Yardbirds.

The director was Joseph Khan... Definitely becoming a household name on my blog, he has clearly made the best music videos and is already majorly respected in the music video industry.

Following every other singer stuck in a traffic jam, these girls jump out of the car and never return, making sure they get to their destination while creating their own traffic jam, naturally. However, respect for The Saturdays, who return to their car in the music video for "Higher"!

Now, ignoring Nicole Scherzinger as lead, and kind of only, vocalist; these girls bring fire with their dancing. Any choreography thrown at them, they perform with perfect technique that definitely made this girl group one to watch. To nail these dance moves is something most girl groups will struggle with. First and foremost these girls are mainly dancers, and although Nicole Scherzinger has the spotlight, they can definitely draw in harmonies together.

There's not a lot else to say, apart from the guys staring at them whilst their girlfriends get a little mad. The Pussycat Dolls may be missing one member during this video and their subsequent ones, but we're kind of used to it since "Buttons" has continuity errors.
