Nicole Scherzinger’s Best Songs, Ranked
8. “Get Over Yourself”
The girl group Eden’s Crush was created on the TV shows Popstars USA in 2001. The group released their debut single “Get Over Yourself” the same year. More than 20 years later, the song is still a bop, giving us nostalgia for the early 2000s. Unfortunately, the group disbanded not long after releasing their debut album.
7. “Don’t Cha”
This track was the lead single from the Pussycat Dolls’ debut album PCD in 2005. The song put them on the map, as they asked listeners, “Don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?” Scherzinger especially shined on the tongue-in-cheek track, which is sure to be stuck in your head for hours after you hear it.
6. “Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)”
In 2009, the Pussycat Dolls released their own English version of A.R. Rahman’s song “Jai Ho” from the soundtrack for Slumdog Millionaire. “Jai Ho! (You Are My Destiny)” has an addicting beat. Scherzinger’s vocals sound amazing on the track’s romantic chorus, and the song came with a lively music video.
5. “Try with Me”
This track appeared on the re-release of Scherzinger’s debut solo album Killer Love in 2011. “Try with Me” shows off a different side to the singer’s talent, as she sounds sweet and vulnerable on the opening verse before belting out the powerful chorus. The song also features an ethereal music video shot in nature.

This Snoop Dogg collaboration, off the Pussycat Dolls’ debut album PCD, is arguably their sexiest release. The highlight of the song is Scherzinger’s sultry vocals on the verses. The song won Best Dance Video at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2006.
2. “Don’t Hold Your Breath”
This track was released on Scherzinger’s debut album Killer Love in 2011. It’s an awesome pop song in which Scherzinger tells her ex-lover that she’s not getting back together with him. Not only does the song have an addicting sound, but Scherzinger also brings plenty of emotion to the strong vocals.
In 2020, the Pussycat Dolls made a comeback with a new single called “React.” It was the group’s first song in over a decade, and they didn’t disappoint. The track was a particular showcase for Scherzinger, who reminded us why she was such a strong frontwoman back in the day. From the verses to the chorus, the song practically demands the “repeat” button.
