Hot Video Alert: Cheryl Cole - The Flood
Despite the fact that her first album was a bit too Will.i.Am heavy, I have to say that I much prefer Cheryl Cole's 3 Words to her sophomore effort Messy Little Raindrops. At first listen, "Promise This" was just a cluster of noise (although it did grow on me) while follow up single, "The Flood" is just plain boring. The chorus is big and Cheryl's voice sounds good here but overall, the single isn't anything special. It's just another boring, decently performed ballad. Come on Cheryl! You're a judge on a reality series...pull out all of the stops and make an effort. I realize that she had a bit of a rough year but this album (despite the fact that it went #1) is just BLAH. I feel like 3 Words just had more flow than this one. I still like Cheryl Cole, I just had higher hopes. I'm inclined to agree with The Prophet on this one. Let's get Girls Aloud back together and stop all of this solo career nonsense! (Nadine - I'm talking to you as well!) "The Flood" was co-written by R&B singer and songwriter Priscilla Renea (of "Dollhouse" greatness) and Wayne Wilkins. "The Flood" will be out on January 3rd in the UK. Check out the perfectly pretty video below.
